Audio Engineering Schools and Universities in the U.S.

How to Select an Audio Engineering School

Audio engineering programs are commonly available through music or engineering departments at community colleges, music schools and 4-year colleges and universities.

Consider the following when looking for audio engineering schools: Though some universities don’t have dedicated audio engineering degree programs, prospective students may want to research schools that offer audio engineering classes within a sound engineering or music production program. Since audio engineering students participate in hands-on work in recording studios and audio laboratories, they may also want to find a college that has modern, professional-grade equipment. Look for schools that are located in cities that have a thriving music industry because they may provide additional opportunities for audio engineering exposure and development. You also need to think about the type of degree you want to earn, so let’s look at those options now.

Associate’s Degree in Audio Engineering

Some community colleges offer programs in audio production or sound recording technology. These programs lead to an Associate of Science or Associate of Applied Science. Credits from this type of program are often transferable for students who want to continue on and pursue their bachelor’s degrees. However, this degree is sufficient on its own for those seeking entry-level positions with sound studios, music retailers. and performance venues. Students in these programs may be required to complete a capstone project or recording portfolio. Associate’s degree courses may include:

  • Live sound production
  • Concert lighting
  • Audio recording

Bachelor’s Degree in Audio Engineering

Many 4-year universities offer audio engineering programs that lead to a bachelor’s degree. Many programs require studio time, and some may seek students with a background in playing and reading music. Degree titles vary for this major; examples include a Bachelor of Science in Sound Engineering, Bachelor of Science in Audio Engineering or Bachelor of Music in Music Technology. Students are typically required to complete a senior project or thesis. Some programs require an internship. Courses commonly cover:

  • Electricity and circuitry
  • Multimedia technology
  • Acoustics
  • Sound recording

California Compulsory Education

Special Circumstance s

Select Legal Statutes

HSC’s legal team offers brief answers to many common questions about homeschooling legally in California

Need to File Your
Private School Affidavit?

Legal Essay by Stephen Greenberg
A detailed legal analysis of the history and legitimacy of choosing to homeschool utilizing the private school option.

If you provide this legal brief to anyone, please give it in it’s complete form.

In California, families can legally homeschool their children by establishing a private school in their home and complying with the private school requirements of the California Education Code. Parents who have established and enrolled their children in a home-based private school cannot be prosecuted for truancy.

Letter on the Legality of Homeschooling
The HSC legal team provides this letter which may be useful in informing school districts, attorneys, or others about homeschooling legalities.

Attention California parents, lawmakers, and other interested parties:

It has recently come to my attention, in the course of my duty as an attorney member of the HomeSchool Association of California�s legal team, that there is some confusion being spread as to the status of homeschooling in California.

Homeschooling is legal in California. It is NOT a grey area. It is NOT unclear whether it is legal.

The California Court of Appeals reached a definitive decision in a case which personally involved attorneys from HSC, and many many other organizations, interested parties, and homeschool advocacy groups. This was an immense undertaking, and in the end homeschooling was definitively found to be a legal and established right of parents within California. That the statutes which permit homeschooling leave much to be desired in terms of a less circuitous route is of no import: homeschooling in California is legal.

The following is language from the case itself, JONATHAN L. et al. Petitioners, v. THE SUPERIOR COURT OF LOS ANGELES COUNTY, Cal. Ct. App. 2nd Dist. Div. 3 (2008), B192878

�we first consider whether home schooling is permitted under California statutes. We conclude that it is.�

Furthermore, information has been incorrectly disseminated through multiple outlets, and on multiple occasions, regarding the ability of a local educational agency to determine the validity of a homeschool that operates subject to the requirements of a Private School Affidavit.

Allow me to clearly state the role of such agency, found within the same opinion referenced above:

�As long as the local school district verifies that a private school affidavit has been filed, there is no provision for further oversight of a home school.� [emphasis added].Jonathan L. ibid.

Therefore, while the local educational agency is by no means required to verify a private school affidavit, if it does so decide, once that action is taken, that is where the inquiry must end.

Parents are not required to provide ANY documents to the local school district regarding the efficacy of their homeschool. Parents may provide a courtesy copy of the PSA, which the local school district can also secure directly from the state, if local school district sees such action as an extension of its due diligence. This is the complete and full extent of the matter.

Please feel free to forward any subsequent inquiries or questions regarding this well established area of the law to my attention.

What is Foundation Waterproofing?

Applied Technologies manufactures a premium polymer-modified asphalt foundation waterproofing product for any budget. Homeowners can rest assured that when their new home’s foundation is coated with Applied Technologies’ waterproofing, they will have a dry basement to convert to any use they desire.

Our products offer warranties ranging from 10-35 years on new residential construction when applied by our Select Waterproofing Contractors.

Applied Technologies manufactures a high performance foundation waterproofing material for any budget. When installed by a Select Waterproofing Contractor these products offer the highest levels of warranties in the industry.

What is Foundation Waterproofing?

Waterproofing is a protective membrane applied to the exterior side of a foundation wall. This membrane stops water from getting through the walls and into the basement interior. Spray application provides a seamless barrier that turns the interior into a dry basement. Without foundation waterproofing, water can seep through a foundation wall or through a crack in the foundation.

Foundation Waterproofing Must Do Three Things

According to the testing and approval criteria of the ICC-ES for foundation waterproofing, it must do three things:

  • Span a crack in a foundation
  • Withstand water under hydrostatic pressure
  • Stop water vapor from entering a basement

All of Applied Technologies’ waterproofing membranes meet these criteria.

Why Use a Polymer-Modified Foundation Waterproofing Membrane

1. Low cost of instalaltion and materials

2. Proven technology provides a long life span

3. Environmentally freindly.

4. Stops water leaks in basements

There are several different forms of foundation waterproofing on the market. The most common is polymer-modified asphalt. This is a liquid asphalt coating that has rubber polymers added. The rubber polymers enhance the asphalt to allow it to stretch over shrinkage cracks. Now water cannot penetrate into the basement even if the foundation cracks. Polymer-modified asphalt waterproofing membranes dry to form a seamless, smooth and continuous barrier to water.

Polymer-modified asphalt waterproofing has several advantages going for it. In addition to being highly effective, the cost of installation is very low compared to other waterproofing products. This is because since they are liquid, they can be sprayed onto a foundation wall at a high rate of coverage. One man hour of application will result in many more square feet of a foundation being treated compared to other types of waterproofing.

The cost of materials is also usually lower for liquid foundation waterproofing membranes. In fact the cost per square foot of installation can be 1/3 to the cost of other waterproofing products.

Our foundation waterproofing materials have been on the market since 1998. They are a proven way to keep your possesions safe from water.

Most importantly, a foundation treated with our waterproofing products is guaranteed to be safe from leaks. You will experince a safe and healthy living space for you and your loved ones.

More Steps to Keep Your Basement Dry

Making a basement dry doesn t just start with foundation waterproofing. There are other systems and features that need to be included as a building is being built to be sure the basement stays dry.

1. Foundation Drainage System

All waterproofing products need to have a functioning ground water drainage system in place. This is simply a perforated pipe that goes around the bottom of a foundation and either drains water to daylight, or if that is not possible, then collects the water in a sump pit. From there a sump pump removes the water from the foundation area.

The purpose of a foundation drainage system is to remove ground water that accumulates around a foundation and under the basement floor. Foundations that lack or have an improperly working foundation drainage system can have water actually enter the basement at the joint where the floor meets the foundation wall.

In addition, the grade of the soil around the building should slope away from it. Grade that slopes towards the building can cause a pooling effect that can get above the area treated with waterproofing. When this happens, the water can enter any cracks in the foundation and enter the basement.
