A variety of new technologies have enhanced the event industry and created new forms of expression and special experiences for the audience. Immersive audio, effects and tracking are just a few of the technologies that have evolved in recent years. Concerts and festivals depend just as much on well-crafted sound and sophisticated lighting and stage designs as industry events, party conventions, e-sports and streaming events. It is essential to master the technologies in order to deliver the best possible results to artists or your customers. The Event Engineering program provides you with a solid professional qualification that will give you a good start in the event industry.

Job profiles in the event industry

Professionals, who can organize events independently and dependably, are high in demand. The guiding principle of our professional training is “learning by doing”, which is the fundamental cornerstone of good event engineering. If you want to shine at live events, you have to master and study the individual components of the field first.
