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 your first two years, 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.You will have access to our extensive facilities, including dedicated student design studios and workshops, anechoic and reverberation chambers, a listening room and a virtual acoustics laboratory.Your Industrial Placement Year will enhance your employability, with an additional year-long paid placement in an engineering organisation. You will be able to apply the knowledge and skills that you developed during the early years of your degree, developing vital professional knowledge and skills to prepare you to become a professional engineer after graduation.Our acoustical engineering courses are unique in being accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and the Institute of Acoustics and offer a route to chartered status.
