Knowledge in acoustics is essential to promote the creation of positive environments, both indoors and outdoors. Rooms need to have proper acoustic conditions for speakers, musicians and listeners. Living and working environments are required which are free from harmful noise and vibrations. The success of products often depend strongly on their sound and vibration quality. The reduction of noise due to traffic is an essential question for a sustainable development of transport systems.
This requires that engineers concerned with the development of products or with the planning of our society have sufficient insight in the field of acoustics to promote during the daily work the positive effects of sound and to abate the negative effects of sound. Therefore a part of the teaching activities concerns the undergraduate education where we contribute to the education in the fields of civil engineering, architecture, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and engineering physics.
To ensure a sustainable development with respect to noise requires specialists in the field of sound and vibration. An international MSc programme in Sound and Vibration was started in 1998 with the aim of graduating students knowledgeable in a wide range of issues in acoustics and vibration. Most of our teaching takes place as part of the programme. We do BSc courses, too.
The Division of Applied Acoustics aims at a high pedagogic profile documented by its work in the form of pedagogic projects and publications pedagogic topics.
