Program Summary:

Our work is about engineering a better sounding world, whether that is improving the speech quality of broadcast audio, designing noise barriers to quieten high speed rail or creating a concert hall whose acoustic improves music. To do this, we bring together physics and psychology to understand how sound waves behave and how people respond to them. We also use computers and digital technology to engineer better sound. Graduates have enviable employment prospects, we have Alumni working worldwide at Apple, Dyson and the BBC, for example. You will be taught by internationally recognized leaders in acoustics and audio research. We have strong links with industry, including work placements all over Europe.
