Recent research of audio industry employers indicated that their new hires lacked communication skills, which the employers deemed valuable for their new hire’s success. In this research audio engineering technology (AET) educators were surveyed about the communication skills focused on in their classrooms, focus of their departments/ institutions, and their internship programs. The quantitative data suggested that both educators and their institutions lacked a focus on apprenticeship skills. Also, fewer than half of the institutions required an internship. Further research must be conducted to understand what these educators reported and how it affects AET education as a whole.
