Course content


Acoustical engineers are in great demand in almost every field of engineering. Whether they’re creating concert halls with better acoustics, new ways to control machinery vibration, clearer ultrasound scans or quieter aeroplanes, acoustical engineers combine a solid understanding of engineering fundamentals with specialist knowledge of sound and vibration. Hosted by the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR), this MSc programme is aimed at engineering, science or mathematics graduates. No prior knowledge of acoustics is required. You will cover aspects of engineering acoustics, vibrations in structures, applied signal processing and human effects of sound and vibration, and have the opportunity to work on a wide range of real-world applications. You can specialise in one of two pathways in Signal Processing or Structural Vibration.


Compulsory modules: Research Methods; MSc Research Project; – at least two out of Fundamentals of Acoustics; Fundamentals of Vibration; Signal Processing

Optional modules: Musical Instrument Acoustics; Noise Control Engineering; Underwater Acoustics; Electroacoustics; Aeroacoustics; Architectural and Building Acoustics; Audio Engineering; Human Responses to Sound and Vibration; Advanced Vibration; Biomedical Application of Signal and Image Processing; Active Control; Applied Digital Signal Processing; Numerical Methods for Acoustics
