Are you facing challenges in acoustics?

Are you willing to:

  • have a very strong background on acoustics and principals of noise control
  • have a deep understanding of the fundamentals, such as wave equation and its solutions
  • learn more about the correlation between sound pressure levels and distance, ambient conditions, noise isolation, absorption, radiation from vibrating surfaces


  • understand occupational noise and vibration problems based on an acquired fundamental knowledge of vibration and acoustic
  • use basic acoustic and vibration control engineering methods to develop effective occupational noise control solutions
  • understand and describe the evaluation and selection of hearing protectors in the workplace

Now you have the opportunity by attending these two
