• Deejay : Another common and exciting profession is becoming a Deejay. Whether in a nightclub or on a live show, an audio engineer can make a very good deejay if they choose to apply their knowledge at- tained from class into their craft.

This is an op- portunity for you to take on this career and stand out with all the skills passed to you in school. Today, a deejay in the US can make up to $60,000 per year depending on where they deejay and who they are per- forming for. Choosing your suitable career depends mainly on your passion. With just a few examples of what you can do after school, there are more opportunities for you that might have different interests.

• Composer : As necessary as the producer, composers also serve a vital role in music production. Arranging existing music into a new composition and writing lyrics are some of their responsibilities. As an audio engi- neering student, this is another career that you would consider if you possessed writing skills. The average pay of a music composer is $51,000 per year.

Looking at other careers in the studio envi- ronment:

Together with his support team, a sound designer makes every decision regarding what an audience hears in a theatre or even during a live event. The average pay per year in such a career is about $54,000.


Caveat is probably the coolest bar in NYC. Well, if you enjoy humanizing the sciences through art, story- telling, and film, and overpriced drinks, then it is definitely the coolest bar in NYC.

Caveat was created by Ben Lillie and Kate Downey. The bar frequently partners with Lillie’s organization Story Collider to provide a relaxed, sociable environment to discuss issues of science, policy, and public outreach. The bar features science themed stand-up comedy, social events to discuss the portrayal of women in film, and storytelling events in partnership with Story Collider. Their many events often have a scientific leaning, but the presentation is in a relatable, fun, format. The arts are being used to make sci - ence, and social issues, more accessible and interesting. Through transformative partnerships such as this, the sciences can reach more people, while scientists learn the value of the humanities.
