Master of Science (MSc) in Engineering Acoustics
Engineering Acoustics is an exciting research area covering a wide range of topics related to sound, hearing, audio technology and vibration.
Acoustic engineering helps society by creating healthy acoustic environments and reducing harmful environmental noise. It enables to assist the hearing impaired, to design innovative architectural spaces, as well as to improve the sound quality delivered by loudspeakers and communication devices. Acoustic signals are a central part of modern signal processing, and they constitute an important source of information in the age of big data and artificial intelligence.
Sound technology is increasingly important in our society, and it is present in almost every aspect of our lives.
The Engineering Acoustics programme covers a wide range of topics within acoustics—including the fundamentals of sound propagation, advanced measurement techniques, and understanding and modelling of the human hearing system.
The MSc Eng programme thus offers a large number of courses dealing with human hearing and reaction to sound, acoustic measurement methods, electroacoustic systems and sensors, architectural acoustics, environmental acoustics, vibration control, signal processing and machine learning.
The choice of courses in the students’ individual study plan offers a high degree of flexibility. Therefore, you have every opportunity to design your own study programme and career by choosing from the wide range of courses offered at DTU.
The MSc Eng is a two-year graduate programme with a workload of 120 ECTS credit points.
Combine work with studies
This study programme is also available as an Industry study programme where you can combine work and study over a 4-year period. Special rules apply.
