New Acoustics Professor Starts in August
I'm delighted to announce that Eoin King, Ph.D. has joined the Mechanical Engineering Department as our newest Professor. Dr. King is a 2008 graduate of Trinity College, Ireland, where he studied environmental acoustics. Subsequent to earning his Ph.D., he formed a joint consulting company and developed strategic noise maps for all major roads in Ireland. As a result, his firm was awarded the Innovation Voucher from Enterprise Ireland. He has taught undergraduate classes at Trinity College Dublin, The Dublin Institute of Technology, as well as Coordinator for the Institute of Acoustics’ tutored distance learning Diploma in Acoustics and Noise Control. An avid musician and guitarist, Dr. King is excited about his move to the United States and starting here at U. of Hartford Acoustics. So are we!
