For those students also interested in study a semester abroad, Capital University has partnered with Queens University in Belfast Northern Ireland. If you draw a Venn diagram of topics such as audio, music, and technology the overlapping and non-overlapping areas between the two programs make for a unique student experience. Additionally, the Sonic Arts Research Centre at Queens is a unique laboratory recording and performance space with configurable baffling and recording options as well as speaker playback below the floor, at ear level and a full story above. Belfast is an affordable city with easy access to tourist sites in Northern Ireland, Ireland and the UK.Another study away option for Music Technology students is a short-term study away experience. Usually a week long, these excursions will immerse students in different cultures to discuss topics, trends and cultural differences within out field. Past trips have included Copenhagen Denmark, Berlin Germany, Granada Nicaragua, and Belfast Northern Ireland. Visits might include tours of manufacturers, visits with companion Higher Education institutions, or behind-the-scenes tours of venues.
Matt Price graduated from Capital's Music Tech program with a passion for live sound. He's run sound at Columbus' largest venues and managed the audio needs at one of Columbus' largest church organizations. You never know where you'll catch Matt these days, as he's now the front-of-house engineer for major label recording artists Bleachers, Magic Man, Walk the Moon and Morning Parade. Matt always keeps an open door on his experiences, and often connects personally with current Music Tech students interested in pursuing live sound as a career.
Students in the Music Technology program are required to complete a six-week internship, and that's when careers really start to take shape. During the period from 2010 to 2014, Music Technology students at Capital participated in 178 internships generating 1,000 credit hours. These experiences included four international locations as well as 104 unique venues in 18 states, from Clear Channel and PromoWest Productions to the Chicago Recording Company, Dell Computers and more.A 2010 graduate, Jim Cantrell, is living proof that internships really can make a difference. Prior to studying at Capital, he played in bands and wasn't sure if he wanted to perform or if he preferred working on the technical side of things. At Capital, he further developed his love of the technical aspect and interned with The Columbus Jazz Arts Group, Jazz Academy. "That's when you start to realize what the real world is all about," he said. "At that point, you can't wait to get out and start doing things." After completing the internship, Jim applied for the position of technical director at the newly renovated Lincoln Theater in Columbus, and landed the job only six months after graduation. His advice to undergraduates is pretty straightforward: "Don't be afraid to try anything. Get your hands dirty. And get as much experience as you can while you're in school."
