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.

“The engineering facilities at Southampton are incredible. For our Group Design Project, we have made significant use of both large and small laser cutters, and high-quality 3D Powder Printers, in addition to the specialist acoustic facilities, including two anechoic chambers, reverberant chambers, and audio laboratories.”
