New Sound Lab Is Open for Business

2/2/11


West Windsor, N.J. - Entertainment Technology students are enjoying new digs this semester. A former classroom in the Communication Building has been transformed into a state-of-the-art sound lab that includes sophisticated software, mixers and live sound reinforcement equipment.

Most of the program's students are music enthusiasts who hope to work in the industry in either New York or Philadelphia -- or wherever their skills and opportunities take them. Several have transferred to MCCC from other colleges that don't offer the course structure and technology combination of Mercer's program.

EnTech Coordinator Bob Terrano reports that of last year's grads, half are continuing their studies at four-year schools. "There is a competitive advantage in getting the four-year degree," he says. Terrano's current first-year students are still planning their next steps, but all agree that Mercer is a great place to be learning about music technology.

The Entertainment Technology program includes two tracks: Music and Sound Technology, and Lighting and Sound Technology. More information is available in the program brochure here.

According to Terrano, the lab will also be utilized by other MCCC programs including Television, Radio, Digital Film, Music, and Game Design.

The EnTech program will host an open house for the campus community and public. Date to be announced.
