Course summary

**Sound is everywhere, from speech and music, to traffic and everyday 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 spaces where audio is at its best. Where there is sound, there is the potential to improve it through Acoustical Engineering.**For over 60 years Salford has pioneered acoustics teaching and research and is recognised by the UK Institute of Acoustics with a route to Chartered Engineer status. Our acoustical and audio engineering degree will guide you through this creative area of science and engineering, through a suite of modules designed to embed theoretical knowledge and creative application, to help you become a world-class acoustic and audio professional. Delivered over four years, or five years with a placement year, you’ll study a suite of modules designed to embed theoretical knowledge and creative application to help you become a world-class acoustic and audio professional. With a focus on real-world problem solving, you’ll initially gain an understanding of key acoustic principles and the physics of sound and the signal chain, before progressing on to shape your degree around your interests, choosing optional modules in areas such as speech, environmental noise and sound perception. By studying our integrated masters pathway, you will also have the opportunity to expand your areas of knowledge within acoustics by studying an additional year of specialist modules.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.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.Our Audio/Sound Technology and Acoustics courses scored 91% for learning resources in the National Student Survey 2020 (University of Salford analysis of unpublished NSS 2020 data)Features• Learn the acoustic design principles behind smartphones, cars and loudspeakers, as well as recording studios, public spaces and live 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 status
