About

The main aim of the Sound and Vibration from Chalmers University of Technology is to educate specialists in the field of sound and vibration who contribute to a competitive and innovative industry and to a sustainable society where the negative effects of noise and vibration on the natural and urban environments and people’s health and well-being are diminished.

Overview

We are affected by sound and vibration in our daily life. Beyond this basic shared experience, “sound and vibration” as an interdisciplinary subject incorporates fields as diverse as physics, mechanics, physiology, signal processing, psychology and electrical engineering. Sound and vibration properties are critical for the function and quality of environments, products and transportation.

Today the design of e.g. high-speed trains, cars, transport infrastructure and buildings is strongly influenced by the performance requirements for sound and vibration properties.

Who should apply

The Sound and Vibration from Chalmers University of Technology is designed for students with a high level of interest in interdisciplinary work where engineering skills are applied to increase the level of comfort and health of people. It is suitable for students with a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering, urban planning, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, physics,

engineering mathematics, architecture and engineering or architectural engineering.

Research connections

The Division of Applied Acoustics is one of the leading acoustics laboratories in Europe. Having initiated and coordinated numerous EC projects, it is a strong international player in the research field. At the same time, it has a strong basic research profile. We have good relationships with most of the well-established acoustics laboratories in Europe (e.g. ISVR, UK, ITA Berlin and INSA Lyon), including regular exchange on both student and PhD level.

Industrial cooperation partners include Swedish vehicle manufacturers (Volvo Trucks (AB), Saab Automobile AB, Bombardier, as well as companies in Europe such as Fiat, Volkswagen, and Continental. We also work together with major consultancy and research institutes in Sweden and abroad (Technical Research Institute of Sweden (SP), WSP, ÅF Ingemansson, Müller BBM in Germany and CSTB in France).
