Italian loudspeaker manufacturer RCF in cooperation with the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia is presenting a Sound Engineering course this spring.
The primary goal of the course is to provide audio engineers with a specific knowledge of the state-of-the-art technologies related to sound, transducers and speaker systems exploring their applications in the professional market. The course will be taking the participants through a learning process from the basis of electroacoustic components like transducers, amplifiers and digital processors till the design of a complete audio project based on a real case study. An international reference project carried out by RCF engineers will be used as a studying guideline to be followed during the course.
The learning topics are grouped into four modules as follows:
1) Environmental Acoustics in open air and inner spaces including design and simulation methods.
2) Transducers and speaker systems including clusters, arrays and point source configurations.
3) Electronics including circuit analysis, filters, amplifiers and DSP.
4) Sound systems design including practical experiences in measurements, listening tests and tuning.
The technical contents provided in this University Course will be completed by the direct experience of RCF laboratories. Since 1949 RCF has been involved in the design, manufacturing and market applications of professional loudspeaker products and systems for theaters, concerts, auditoriums, airports, cruise ships, shopping malls, cinemas, stadia and all applications of sound reinforcement.
The course will be directed by Professor Emilio Lorenzani, Department of Science and Methods for Engineering, University of Modena and Reggio Emilia. The course will be in e-learning mode for six weeks beginning March 28 and then will require one week presence, from May 14-18, at the RCF Audio Academy in Reggio Emilia, Italy. The course will be taught in English. For details on the course: www.soundengineering.unimore.it/
