Course summary

**Sound is everywhere: speech, music, noise. Acoustics is about exploring the physics of these sounds and the psychology of how people react when hearing them. Acoustical engineering has endless applications, from designing loudspeakers in smart phones to creating classrooms where noise doesn’t interrupt learning. Where there is sound, there is potential to improve it through Acoustical Engineering.**Salford has pioneered acoustics teaching and research for over 60 years. Our acoustical and audio engineering degree course will guide you through the creative science and engineering involved in shaping and managing sound, whether creating sound technology for games or designing warning sound systems for electronic cars.Based in our Peel Park campus, minutes from central Manchester, you’ll use specialist acoustic laboratories like our anechoic chambers and learn from lecturers who carry out world-leading acoustics research, including R&D for the acoustic and audio industry.Initially, you’ll gain an understanding of the mathematics and physics of acoustics, exploring audio systems, analogue electronics, digital signal processing and architectural acoustics. As you progress, you’ll shape your degree around your interests, choosing optional modules in areas such as speech, environmental noise and sound perception.Our graduates have great prospects for a career in the acoustic and audio industries. Salford alumni have gone on to work with leading companies, including Apple, Arup, Bang and Olufsen, BBC, Bentley, Dyson, Dolby and Google. **Features**- Learn the design principles that achieve the best possible audio reproduction in modern music products, recording studios, loudspeakers and venues- Discover how music, speech and other sounds are perceived and how this influences the design of applications, products and buildings- Study a course that has a unique and varied mix of topics: physics, computing, engineering, psychology- Opportunities to carry out a paid industrial placement year with world renowned companies- This course is recognised by the UK Institute of Acoustics as a route to Chartered Engineer statusFind out more from our graduate Elle, who got the chance to do a placement at Glastonbury!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hhy6YcZfJr0&feature=youtu.be
