Audio Visual Engineer

How can I learn to become an Audio Visual Engineer?

Although most experience is provided on the job, most employers require at least a high school diploma. It is beneficial to have some post-high school education in broadcasting technology, radio equipment, sound equipment, etc. Many colleges and trade schools offer degrees and certification programs in these areas. There is no specific licensing or certification required to be an audio visual engineer.

It is highly important to note that audio visual engineer is most definitely not a formal, licensed and recognized formal engineering discipline, like electrical, chemical or mechanical engineering but it is definitely coming into it's own with the influx of home and business automation and home theaters.

What are the job responsibilities of an Audio Visual Engineer?

Audio visual engineers usually work at meetings and events, businesses and homes to coordinate, implement, and provide audio visual services and equipments.

Acoustical engineering deals more with they physics of sound where audio engineering deals with the art of sound.

Some engineers deal mostly with visual and focus on lighting and the visual part of broadcasting and multi-medial. Their machines of choice are more about broadcasting and monitoring equipment, lighting equipment, screens and monitors of all sorts, etc. They help set up the visual part of an event experience, for example, at conventions or concerts.

Some audio visual engineers work directly for a theater, hospitality, event center or other facility, while others either work with audio visual companies that outsource their services or sometimes sole proprietors who have their own businesses and are one-man bands.
