Acoustics with Music
Our courses provide you with the fundamentals of engineering, combined with specialist studies in acoustics, vibrations, and their human effects. Alongside these topics, you will take design modules, which will enable you to apply your knowledge and develop the skills you need to become a successful engineer.
This three-year course provides a broad-based education in the theoretical and practical aspects of both disciplines, allowing you to combine an interest in sound and technology with musical studies. The modular nature of the course allows you to adjust the balance between acoustical engineering and music as you progress (subject to limits), for career opportunities in both fields.
We offer our students a dynamic learning environment; your course will include a combination of lectures, laboratory classes, tutorials, private study, and individual and group projects.
We accept a wide range of qualifications for undergraduate study which you can find listed below. To find the specific grades and entry requirements required for each course, please contact the University.

If you are taking (or have taken) qualifications not listed on the course pages, admissions tutors will be happy to advise you on entry requirements for the course.
You will study a number of core subjects during the first two years, all related to acoustics, audio, sound and vibrations. Additional module options can be taken from Acoustical Engineering and Music. In year three, you will have the opportunity to specialise further in acoustics or music.
Core and compulsory modules:
Year 1: Mathematics for Engineering and the Environment, Design and Computing, Acoustics I,
Year 2: Audio and Signal Processing, Mathematics for Engineering and the Environment Part II, Acoustics II
Year 3: Individual Project or Research Project
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.
