Electrical Engineering and Audio Engineering

Are you fascinated by the acoustic design of your surroundings, for example, the sound design in vehicles or the acoustics in all kinds of event rooms? Or perhaps you’d like to improve the communication between humans and machines? Are you tracking new hardware and software developments for audio and multimedia processing in infotainment and professional studios? In the Bachelor's Degree Programme in Electrical Engineering and Audio Engineering, you can combine your interests in music and technology. You immerse yourself in this unique field that builds a bridge between technology and music, science and art, reason and emotion and develop your intuitive talent for bringing these fields together.

Key data

The degree programme is based on a broad scientific education in the field of audio technology. Building on a basic education in mathematics and physics, as well as music theory and music practice, you will acquire specialist knowledge in electrical engineering, signal processing, acoustics and computer science. You will deepen your musical expertise through ear training and instrumental lessons.

During your studies in electrical engineering and sound engineering, you will simultaneously immerse yourself in the world of Graz University of Technology and the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz (KUG). This allows you to benefit from the excellent infrastructure of both universities, such as the "CUBE", a playback room for 3D spatial sound at KUG.
