Make sound amazing. Make amazing sounds.

Sound program grads from Michigan Tech work worldwide in the industry— just like the faculty who prepare you for your career. 

When you think audio production and technology, think system design, system installation, and the technical elements of sound. You’ll take courses in music and theater production while getting a foundation in electrical engineering technology or computer science to emphasize the technical aspects of audio production. Upon graduation, you’ll have the versatility to work with audio as it evolves.

24/7 studio access you don’t find at other schools. Design and calibrate sound systems for live events. Program custom audio software. Mix and master. Produce. Summer internships with major companies like Disney, Marvel, and Cirque du Soleil move your resumé to the top of the pile.

"You propose your own project, and work on something you are truly interested in. This helped me learn acoustics, manufacturing, and prototyping concepts. I was involved in designing cost-effective acoustic diffusers. Classes like this inspire creativity, and dive into the topics that help you choose a career."Zak L'Italien, 2018
