Acoustical and Audio Engineering with Foundation Year - University of Salford

Acoustic engineering explores the noise, vibration and audio output of architecture and consumer products. By understanding how sound waves behave and how people respond to them, you will help to engineer a better sounding world. Salford has pioneered acoustics teaching and research for over 60 years. Our full acoustical and audio engineering degree course, which is recognised by the UK Institute of Acoustics with a route to Chartered Engineer status, will guide you to explore the creative science and engineering involved in managing sound, whether designing sound for VR games, or noise barriers to quieten high-speed rail. This foundation year is an effective bridging programme for applicants who do not meet the entry requirements for the full BEng degree. You will complete a range of modules to develop your maths and physics knowledge to the academic level required for further study. You will gain awareness of social, legal and environmental issues, studying a broad range of engineering subjects to prepare you for a wide variety of careers. Based in our Peel Park campus, minutes from central Manchester, you’ll use cutting-edge acoustic studios and facilities and learn alongside research taking place in our world-class Anechoic Chamber and Reverberation Suite. Led by our acoustics team, the foundation year will give you the capabilities to take your passion for engineering further. On successful completion, you can join our BEng Acoustical and Audio Engineering degree. **Features** - Learn the design principles to achieve the best possible audio reproduction in modern music products, recording studios, loudspeakers and venues - Discover how music, speech and other sounds are perceived and how that influences the design of applications, products and buildings - Understand the fundamental acoustic principles, such as Fourier’s theorem, 3D wave equation, the finite string and radiation impedance - Develop analytical, numerical and computer based problem solving skills - Cover popular business and management theory and enterprise leadership to prepare for your future career in acoustics and audio. Find out more from our current student Elle, who got the chance to do a placement at Glastonbury! **https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hhy6YcZfJr0&feature=youtu.be** The full course is recognised by the UK Institute of Acoustics and offers a route to Chartered Engineer status.
