Acoustical Engineering

Acoustical engineers are in great demand in almost every field of engineering, whether they are creating better-sounding concert halls, superior sound reproduction systems, clearer ultrasound scans or quieter aeroplanes.

Encompassing almost all aspects of modern society, from automotive design to improving medical imaging, acoustical engineering uses science and design to control sound and vibration.

Our courses will provide you with a specialist knowledge of sound, vibration, and their human effects, together with a core knowledge of mechanical engineering.

Sound recording was my first passion but the more I looked into the courses available at university, the more I realised I wanted to focus on science and engineering. When I found out about Acoustical Engineering, I knew that was the best choice for me.
