Jobs - Loudspeaker and Audio Design

Xavier Babington at Genelec

Many loudspeaker manufacturers employ our engineering graduates, as do makers of mixing desks and music technology systems and companies that design domestic hi-fi. Mobile phone and car audio manufacturers also employ our graduates.

The work may include:

  • Research and development of loudspeaker drivers and cabinets.
  • Design of in-car audio systems.
  • Investigating unusual loudspeaker technologies such as flat panel DML's.
  • Design of audio signal processing for mobile phones.
  • Research and development of amplifiers, effects units and other audio components.
  • Design of audio microphones, mic placement in mobile telephony.
  • Assessment of codecs for audio signals.
  • Design for audio distribution over IP and on-demand services.

To become an audio engineer, study either the BEng Audio Acoustic taking either pathway, or the MSc Audio Acoustics.

If you want to get involved in the design and development of audio systems you need a technical degree which gives you the mathematical grounding to cope with modern design methods. Beware of the many courses which don't provide the proper scientific and engineering grounding.

Some companies who have employed our audio engineering graduates: Bang and Olufsen, Bose Corporation, Amek, AMS-Neve, Arbiter Group, Dolby, HTC, Motorola, Nokia, Panasonic, Philips, D & T Electronics, HHB, Sony Interactive, Bruel and Kjaer, BSS Audio, Ericsson, Ford, NXT, Soundcraft Electronics, Tannoy, Genelec, Harmen-Motive, KEF, Meridian Audio, BBC R&D , Celestion
