Acoustics and Audio Technology - Computer, Communication and Information Sciences, Master of Science (Technology)
Much of the built environment does not sound the way it does by chance but because someone designed it so. Acoustic engineering is an exciting future-proof field that shapes how the world sounds: it can, for example, help reduce noise pollution to make way for more harmonic environments and coherent sound experiences. The major in Acoustics and Audio Technology prepares students for outstandingly diverse career prospects and equips them with a fundamental understanding of human hearing, audio perception, and physics of sound. This is a one-of-a-kind Master’s programme with internationally renowned and award-winning professors as well as world-class study facilities, including the newly renovated Aalto Acoustics Lab.
Upon graduating from the Master’s Programme in Computer, Communication and Information Sciences – Acoustics and Audio Technology, graduates will have:
- Wealth of knowledge and skills to engineer a better sounding world. Graduates possess the knowledge and skills to take on leading positions in their desired career field.
- Fundamental understanding of what is important from the human hearing point of view. Graduates are able to measure, understand perceptual aspects, and design the kind of acoustics that put the human listener first.
- Extensive knowledge to conduct independent research and experiments. Graduates have the skills, understanding and support needed to practically solve acoustic and audio design cases.
- Confidence in perceptual decision-making. Graduates know how to rely on the available sensory information and foster greater critical thinking when faced with problems to solve.
- A sustainable approach to sound engineering. Graduates have learnt to master resource efficiency and some of them specialise in noise reduction which significantly contributes to better and more sustainable environments.
