Whether you're interested in the science of sound waves and acoustic engineering, or want to qualify as an audiologist in a clinical setting, you'll find a place with us. Our Institute of Sound and Vibration Research is a centre of study in many topics across these fields.
Acoustical engineering students will develop skills for a range of industrial applications. We'll train you in industry-standard measurement and simulation techniques, and give you access to one of the largest anechoic chambers in any UK university. Audiology students will study at the only university in the UK with its own in-house audiology and auditory implant centres. You can register as a hearing care assistant and pursue paid roles in the field while you progress your degree.

Our research makes a difference
My research interests are in acoustics, vibrations, signal processing, control systems and fluid dynamics.
I'm undertaking research on unsteady aerodynamics and flow-induced sound generation in various engineering problems via high-performance computational simulations.
The aim of my work is to understand how we hear sound and to use this knowledge to create bio-inspired solutions to enhance speech communication.
