The aim of this Acoustics program offered at Pennsylvania State University is to enable the student interested in acoustics to obtain an integrated program covering acoustical science and engineering applications of acoustics.


Student curricula for this Acoustics program at Pennsylvania State University are individually tailored and integrated through a selection of core and elective courses in areas such as:

  • basic acoustics
  • physical acoustics
  • underwater acoustics
  • signal processing
  • optics
  • architectural acoustics
  • medical ultrasonics
  • aeroacoustics
  • vibrations
  • wave propagation
  • speech
  • physiological acoustics
  • psychoacoustics
  • thermoacoustics
  • hydroacoustics
  • computational acoustics


The Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) degree is a non-thesis professional master’s degree. It is based on graduate course work and a written paper or a developmental study must be submitted to the Acoustics program.

Other requirements

General requirements

  • Entering students should hold a bachelor's degree in physics, engineering, mathematics, or a closely related field that would provide substantial preparation in mathematics (a minimum of two semesters of calculus-based physics and mathematics to include complex variables and differential equations).
  • In addition, an undergraduate knowledge of statics and dynamics, linear algebra, and electronic circuit analysis, and the ability to use mathematical analysis software is expected.
  • Students with a 3.00 junior/senior average (on a 4.00 scale), appropriate course backgrounds, and a B+ or better average in mathematics, physical science, and engineering courses will be considered for admission.
  • Graduate Record Exam (GRE) scores will be considered if provided, but they are neither required nor expected.
