Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

This course will span the spectrum of the field to provide a survey of computer audio that will be useful to students in computer science, HCI, information design, and psychology. We will begin the course at the low level, covering how people hear, as well as how sound can be represented, synthesized, processed, and spatialised. We will then progress to examining current research in audio including its uses in interfaces, virtual environments, gaming, and film. Homework assignments will allow students to experiment with sound and gain expertise in the areas mentioned above. The goal is start up to problems of accurate reproduction of images and sound. In the scope of the schooling with students, they became familiar with work with professional tools for work with visual and sound records Graduates will can work with images and with sounds on profession level, they will can judge the quality of projected equipment and appraise technology for studio production.
