Acoustic engineering is the use of technology to play, amplify or reduce sound. This could be anything from a car radio to a concert hall or stadium and can even include reducing sound from machines such as aeroplanes. You’ll learn about sound, vibrations and the effects these have on the human body. As a graduate you may opt to continue studying one of the many postgraduate courses available to acoustic engineering graduates, or you could go right into the world of work. You might work as an acoustic engineer, supporting architects to design buildings with sound in mind, or you could be working to design sound systems, or even specialise in sonar or noise control.
