Content and structure of the minor

The minor in Acoustics & Audio Technology offers fundamental knowledge about acoustical phenomena, human hearing and audio technologies, and also facilitates the students to apply the knowledge in practice.

The fields of electroacoustics, room and building acoustics, noise, musical acoustics, and audio signal processing are focus-points of the studies. Technical Psychoacoustics that deals with human hearing mechanisms is central to the studies, as a cornerstone in the development of acoustical and audio technologies for human listeners. Put together, these fields constitute Communication Acoustics, where a human listener is always at the end of the acoustic communication channel. Currently, Digital Signal Processing is also an important tool in the Acoustics and Audio Engineering, and hence the teaching emphasizes both the understanding of its general principles and the fundamental audio processing algorithms.
