Why choose this course:
Our course aims to:
• build on professional acousticians’ basic acoustics knowledge and critically review and assess particular methods of assessment and control
• enable students who already have the IOA Diploma in Acoustics and Noise Control to top this up to a masters award
• provide students with the opportunity to tailor studies to meet the requirements of their work and research interests.
About the course:
If you’re a professional acoustician and would like to build on your existing knowledge, this course is for you.
Our academic staff are friendly, supportive, and approachable. They’re all experienced acousticians, and most are full and active members of the Institute of Acoustics.
Prior to this course, you will have completed the IOA Diploma in Acoustics and Noise Control. You will enter the MSc at the masters stage - your study will involve the completion of a research-based investigation, which can be practical or desktop-based, and will culminate in the submission of a thesis.
Your study can be work-based and therefore be of benefit to both you and your employer. For work-based investigations, we will liaise with you and your employer to ensure you achieve the academic goals required for an MSc award. The study will normally take one year to complete.
All of your learning will be available through distance learning (via online materials) and the course can fit in with your work and personal commitments. There are a number of online classrooms that you can participate in, as well as recorded presentations by academic staff.
