We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Acoustics Engineering equip postgraduates with the skills to analyse, design and control sounds in mechanical systems and technology.
Taught MSc degrees are typical for the field, though research-based MRes and MPhil degrees may also be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in an appropriate Engineering discipline.
Courses in this field encourage you to think about the way vibration and sounds can impact engineering processes. Unwanted sound can have large negative impacts on both human and animal environments, in both rural and urbanised areas.
These courses will train you to develop operational techniques which control sound and vibration. These can include the design and production of noise barriers, sound absorbing equipment, suppressors and buffer zones.
You will explore techniques in structural dynamics, applied digital signal processing, biomedical signal processing and human effects of sound and vibration. Consideration is also given to legislation in the industry, particularly public policy on noise control, as well as health and safety.
Careers include industrial practise such as manufacturing and environmental engineering, as well as creative careers such as product design and events management.
