What will I learn?

Programme aim

We are affected by sound and vibration in our daily life. Beyond this basic shared experience, “sound and vibration” as an interdisciplinary subject incorporates fields as diverse as physics, mechanics, physiology, signal processing, psychology and electrical engineering. Sound and vibration properties are critical for the function and quality of environments, products and transportation.

Today the design of e.g. high-speed trains, cars, transport infrastructure and buildings is strongly influenced by the performance requirements for sound and vibration properties.

The main aim of the programme is to educate specialists in the field of sound and vibration who contribute to a competitive and innovative industry and to a sustainable society where the negative effects of noise and vibration on the natural and urban environments and people’s health and well-being are diminished.

Why apply

With its breadth, the programme is unique in Sweden. Students can specialise in the field of noise control engineering, architectural acoustics or environmental acoustics. Cooperation with other Scandinavian universities enables the range of specialisations to be further extended (e.g. underwater acoustics, musical acoustics).

As a specialist in sound and vibration, graduates have a wide application area in which to work that extends from the vehicle industry to audio technology. The educational profile enables students to find professional opportunities as specialists all over the world, especially in Europe where there is a clear need for specialists in the field.
