Course summary

Acoustical engineering is the application of acoustics – the science of sound and vibration – in technology, with broad applications from the design of cars, 3D-audio systems and concert halls, to reducing aircraft noise and using ultrasound to fight antimicrobial resistance. As an acoustical engineering student, you will develop specialist knowledge of sound, vibration and their human effects, in addition to a solid foundation in a wide range of engineering fundamentals. You will learn by doing, studying the theoretical principles of acoustical engineering alongside practical design modules and projects.During the first two years of this integrated master's, you will study specialist modules in acoustics and audio signal processing, alongside the core principles of mechanical engineering, including mechatronics and electronics. In your third year, advanced modules and an individual project will deepen your understanding of acoustics and human responses to sound and vibration. In your final year, you will study advanced acoustical engineering modules and participate in a group design project, applying your engineering knowledge to a design problem.You'll have access to our extensive facilities, including dedicated student design studios and workshops, anechoic and reverberation chambers, a listening room, aeroacoustic wind tunnel, loudspeaker audio lab and a virtual acoustics laboratory.Our acoustical engineering courses are accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, and offer a route to chartered status. They also meet the educational requirements for the Institute of Acoustics.
