The Audio Engineering Society is the only professional society devoted exclusively to audio technology.

Founded in the United States in 1948, the AES has grown to become an international organization that unites audio engineers, creative artists, scientists and students worldwide by promoting advances in audio and disseminating new knowledge and research.

Here at CRAS we are fortunate to have one of the most active chapters in the country. The opportunity to become involved in a professional organization like AES early in your audio career provides an excellent framework for networking at conferences and events in major audio markets throughout the world. This is a great way to build the connections that can help you land a recording job after your training is completed.

Student members attend meetings, seminars and clinics and organize extra-curricular activities for the student body. Seminar topics range from current industry trends to acquiring audio engineering skills. Clinics provide hands-on experience with projects focusing on the design and construction audio tools. Students have built everything from simple direct boxes, microphones and re-amp devices to 100 watt tube guitar amplifiers.

Student members may attend yearly AES conventions in the U.S. representing the school at the student delegate meetings. They experience the cutting edge in audio technology and network with industry professionals and fellow students alike. We are very proud of our AES chapter’s legacy and look forward to having new student members be part of this respected organization.

This connection to the AES is just one of many unique benefits of attending CRAS.
