RCF and Italian university to provide sound engineering university course
WORLD: The Department of Science and Methods for Engineering of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia is working in conjunction with Italian pro audio manufacturer RCF for the sixth consecutive year to provide a university course in sound engineering. The course begins on 20th March 2017 and will be conducted mostly as an online programme, with one week onsite in Italy.
The course has been developed as part of RCF’s Audio Academy and will require participants to spend one week at the academy in Reggio Emilia, Italy, from 15th – 19th May 2017. The final day on campus will mark the end date of the course, in which the final examination will be conducted.
Those that participate in the course will gain knowledge of the latest sound technologies, including transducers and speaker systems, and how these can be applied in the professional audio market. The course is split into four modules and RCF will provide a global reference project carried out by its engineers as a case study to be explored during the programme.
The four modules are: Environmental Acoustics in open air and inner spaces including design and simulation methods; Transducers and speaker systems including clusters, arrays and point source configurations; Electronics including circuit analysis, filters, amplifiers and DSP; Sound system design including practical experiences in measurements, listening tests and tuning.
Professor Luca Larcher from the Department of Science and Methods for Engineering, University of Modena and Reggio Emilia will serve as the course director. The course will be delivered in English.
