To become a successful audio engineer, one should be well trained in any degree or diploma courses in audiography, sound recording, sound engineering and audio engineering. No specific educational qualification is required for a training in this field. However, for Post graduate courses in audio engineering one should have a bachelor's degree. Though not necessary, a basic knowledge in physics and mathematics will be an advantage for the audio engineers, as they have to under go many calculations such as reverberations of the room, calculating the delay time etc. More over the practical training will make the person good at audio engineering. Besides these courses, there are several online courses.

One who has the background in electrical engineering and fine arts can also pursue a career in this field. He should be expert in using various recording equipments such as Mixing consoles and Microphones. Signal processors, Tape machines, Digital audio workstations, music sequencers, speakers, preamplifiers, amplifiers are some of other equipments used by the audio engineers.

Course Details:
A course in audio engineering involves the study of the technical and creative aspects of sound recording, editing and mixing. Most of the courses often start with the basic theory and frequencies of sound and covers a broad area in recording, post production, live-sound reinforcement and as well broadcasting. Along with the technical aspects such as sound mixing, giving special effects etc, candidates are also well trained in the usage of the recording tool, microphones etc. Audio wiring, advanced communication skill, MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) Electronic Music, Sound Recording, Music Business, Multitrack Production Techniques are some of the other course areas in audio engineering. During their curriculum, the candidates are trained not just recording music but also recording other sounds like dubbing

Personal skill:
Those aspiring to make a career in the field should have a keen interest and love for music. Audio engineers requires a combo of creativity, technical knowledge and an aptitude for working with electrical, electronic, and mechanical systems and equipment. As music production is a team work, one should have good communication skill and team spirit. The working hours of an audio engineer can be long and irregular, so they should have the ability to cope with the situation. Concentration, patience, good understanding, good sense of pitch, timing and rhythm are the other flair needed for an audio engineer. They must be proficient with different types of recording media, such as analog tape, digital multi track recorders and workstations and computer knowledge. With the advent of the digital age, it is important for the audio engineer to be versed in the understanding of software and hardware integration from synchronization to analog to digital transfers.
