We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Acoustics equip postgraduates with the skills to detect, analyse and produce sound waves.
Related subjects include Applied Acoustics, Audio Acoustics, Environmental Acoustics and Electroacoustics. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Physics or Engineering.
Acousticians are involved in practices and activities across a range of industries, including manufacturing, construction, architecture, telecommunications and engineering. Courses in Acoustics enable you to understand the ways in which humans respond to sounds, and how sound interacts with our environment.
You’ll be trained in the use of measurement, simulation and modelling technology to analyse and produce sounds, and assess their interactions with built and natural environments, equipment and industrial activities.
For example, you might investigate the ways in which mining, quarrying and urban planning impact local urban communities. Or, you may analyse how travel networks such as flight paths and motorways affect rural communities.
Acousticians can also assist in the development of new technologies. For instance, you could work in partnership with a retail company to improve the sound quality of consumer electronics. Alternatively, you might support health organisations in developing hearing aid technology.
