"I am a 1995 graduate of Northeast Community College with an associate of applied science degree in audio and recording technology. After graduation, I returned to my home state of North Carolina to pursue a career in the music business at AMI Inc, an audio tape duplication company. The skills I learned at Northeast were put to the test daily as I maintained and repaired audio tape duplicating equipment. As cassette tape popularity faded, I moved into instrument and audio repair using my knowledge of recording processes and electronics. I am currently teaching guitar and use the skills and knowledge my instructors and classmates help me develop at Northeast."

"My professional experience has afforded me many opportunities to work with graduates of the Northeast Community College audio program, and I feel that these collaborations have been wholly positive. These former students I have not only been able to count on in the past, but are people I would not hesitate to recommend in the future to potential employers. There's no question I would pay close attention to any resume sent to me by a graduate of Northeast Community College."

Karl Winkler, Lectrosonics, Inc.


"An audio program, such as Northeast's, is becoming more and more appreciated in the industry nationwide. This is because they teach the fundamentals and technical skills that employers are looking for, rather than just how to operate specific equipment."

Pat Brown, Synergetic Audio Concepts


"Over the years, many full time permanent and temporary audio engineers employed by NET have graduated from NECC. The excellent skills and professional insight exhibited by these graduates insures swift integration into our technical team. The facility, faculty and students are all very impressive. I have great hopes for the future of the students I had the pleasure to meet and I look very optimistically to the future of NET based in those excellent hearts and minds."
