About

At the Acoustical and Vibration Engineering MSc course offered by the University of Southampton you'll learn how to apply acoustics to technology. This degree will give you expert knowledge of the latest modern developments in sound, vibration and signal processing. You’ll graduate with the skills you need for a career in acoustical engineering or for continued study at PhD level.

Overview

Course Details

This Acoustical and Vibration Engineering MSc course offered by the University of Southampton combines an understanding of engineering fundamentals with specialist knowledge of sound and vibration. We’ll develop your practical and problem-solving skills to apply them in fields including:

  • noise control
  • audio engineering
  • architectural acoustics
  • biomedical ultrasounds

You’ll study at the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR) - a world-leading centre for acoustical engineering.

You can choose to study acoustic engineering as a general topic, but may also decide to specialise in signal processing or structural vibration:

  • Signal processing provides in-depth training on modern signal processing techniques for biomedical applications and audio signal processing.
  • Structural vibration emphasises the advanced techniques to model, measure and control vibration in mechanical systems such as railways and automotive applications.

This master's in acoustics is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) as meeting the academic requirement for Further Learning, for Chartered Engineer registration. Candidates must hold a BEng/BSc undergraduate first degree that is accredited for Chartered Engineer (CEng) registration to comply with full CEng registration requirements.

Career Opportunities

Testing is conducted through a combination of unseen written examinations and assessed coursework in the form of problem solving exercises, laboratory reports, design exercises, essays, and individual and group projects. Experimental, research and design skills are assessed through laboratory reports, coursework exercises and oral presentations.
