Hands-on workshops and master classes for students at AES Dublin

Posted on: Monday 11th of February 2019

The Audio Engineering Society’s 146th International Pro Audio Convention (taking place March 20 – 23 at the Convention Centre in Dublin, Ireland) promises more ways than ever for students and those new to the industry to listen, learn and connect with top names in audio engineering and technology, with the initiative “Excite Your Ears.” In addition to qualifying for free entry to the Product Showcase and select Special Events, AES Student Members are eligible for up to 75% off All Access badges during the online Advance Registration period ending March 8. The Convention offers dedicated student and career development presentations to All Access attendees, as well as networking events and social activities (including the AES Student Party to be held the evening of March 20), and opportunities to be a part of recording and technology design competitions.

Student Delegate Assembly (SDA) is the representative body that plans and manages student convention activities while providing those involved the opportunity to learn organisational and leadership skills. Student Delegate Assembly meetings bookend Student and Career Development events at AES Dublin, serving as the operational hub of Society’s student involvement, including SDA election proceedings.

AES Conventions offer an array of educational opportunities designed to inspire the next generation of audio engineers to their highest potential, including specialized presentations allowing for interactive participation. Unique to AES Dublin is the innovative session series “Student Hands-On Workshops and Master Classes on Immersive Audio,” which offers the opportunity to learn practical, new skills while implementing the latest immersive audio technologies. In addition, the session “Creating Audio Plugins with MATLAB” will examine the practical development of DSP code-based product development, along with the technical foundations needed to enter the AES MATLAB Plugin Student Competition, scheduled to take place at the 147th International Convention in New York City in October. The AES Dublin Student Recording Critiques, Student Recording Competitions and the Saul Walker Student Design Competition events provide interactive, professional evaluations of student work in recording production and audio technology product design, along with recognition and rewards for top projects.
For students and professionals looking for their next level of education or career opportunity in audio engineering, the open-to-all AES Dublin Education and Career Fair offers an international mix of professional audio companies and institutions looking for the best and brightest upcoming minds in the audio world. Offering the chance to network with fellow students, prospective employers, educators and other industry professionals, the Education and Career Fair is an ideal environment for attendees to find a path forward toward fulfilling their audio aspirations.
To take advantage of all of AES Dublin’s Student and Career Development events, you must register for an All Access badge. The full slate of student activities is listed at the online program Students/Career page. For more information about AES Dublin, and to register now, visit aeseurope.com.
