Undergraduate Degree Programs in Acoustics
At the
College of Engineering, Technology and Architecture


WHAT IS ACOUSTICS?

Acoustics is the science of sound; how it is produced, how it travels, and how it can be detected. It covers a broad range of disciplines, including mechanical engineering, music, electrical engineering, biology, audiology, and physics.

WHAT DOES AN ACOUSTICAL ENGINEER DO?

Those who choose the field of engineering to study acoustics have their own broad areas to choose from.These include: Audio Engineering (high fidelity sound system design), Architectural Acoustics (design of concert halls, recording studios and music rooms), Musical Acoustics (design of musical instruments), Noise Control and Sound Quality (of machinery, jet engines, automobiles, environmental regulations), and Bio-Engineering (design of hearing aids, replacement parts for the ear, hearing test equipment).

OUR PROGRAMS:

The College of Engineering at the University of Hartford offers two unique ways to incorporate ACOUSTICS into an undergraduate engineering degree program. Note that both of our acoustical engineering programs are fully accredited by ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology). Our Program Educational Objectives (PEOs), Outcomes, Enrollment Data and other accreditation-related information may be found at this page.
