Student Design Competition/Exhibition

Abstract:
All accepted student entries to the AES Student Design Competition will have the opportunity to show off their designs at this poster/tabletop exhibition. This audio "science fair" is free and open to all convention attendees and is an opportunity for aspiring student hardware and software engineers to have their projects seen by the AES design community. It's also an invaluable career-building event and a great place for companies to identify their next employees. Students from both audio and non-audio backgrounds are encouraged to submit entries. Few restrictions are placed on the nature of the projects, but designs must be for use with audio. Examples include loudspeaker design, DSP plug-ins, analog hardware, signal analysis tools, mobile applications, and sound synthesis devices. Products should represent new, original ideas implemented in working-model prototypes.

Education/Career Fair

Abstract:
The combined AES 136th Education and Career Fair will match job seekers with companies and prospective students with schools.

Companies
Looking for the best and brightest minds in the audio world? No place will have more of them assembled than the 136th Convention of the Audio Engineering Society. Companies are invited to participate in our Education and Career Fair, free of charge. This is the perfect chance to identify your ideal new hires! All attendees of the convention, students and professionals alike, are welcome to come visit with representatives from participating companies to find out more about job and internship opportunities in the audio industry. Bring your resume!

Schools
One of the best reasons to attend AES conventions is the
opportunity to make important connections with your fellow educators from around the globe. Academic Institutions offering studies in audio (from short courses to graduate degrees) will be represented in a “table top” session. Information on each school's respective programs will be made available through displays and academic guidance. There is no charge for schools/institutions to participate.

They then play their projects for all who attend. Meritorious awards are determined here and will be presented at the closing Student Delegate Assembly Meeting (SDA-2).
