Audio engineering programs are being created and expanded at 4-year universities across the United States due to increasing demand for the subject at the university level. The purpose of this online study was to ask an expert panel of engineers to create a ranking of essential core competencies and technologies needed by audio engineering technology programs 10 years into the future (2019). A panel of 52 audio experts and industry leaders were selected as a purposive sample and an online, modified Delphi methodology was employed. The 3-round process produced 160 competencies that can be used by administrators to construct future curriculum and technologies needed for their AET programs.
