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.

Acoustical engineering is the application of acoustics - the science of sound and vibration - in technology. It has broad applications across most aspects of society, from automotive design to improving medical imaging.

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