Acoustics, Audio and Video
Acoustic & audio engineering, music & sound technology, TV, animation & social media are our passions. We are leaders in teaching, research and commercial work in audio and acoustic engineering, video and television.
Regular open days give you the opportunity to tour our labs, meet our expert staff or and find out more about our courses, graduates of which have gone to work for leading companies including Apple, BBC, Dolby, Rolls Royce and Bang & Olufsen.
We are the primary partner for acoustics research in the BBC Audio Research Partnership building on our 40 year history of acoustics research. Our laboratories employ 5 technicians, bringing in £0.3M every year as a calibration and test house for construction, government, military, audio R&D and the motor industry.
Our research work includes:
- Acoustic measurement
- Architectural and building acoustics
- Audio engineering
- Computer modelling of sound
- Environmental noise and vibration
- Materials for Acoustics
- Public engagement
We are involved in many projects engaging schools, families and engineers outside acoustics. Our aim is to make people more aware of acoustic science and understand how acoustic engineering can improve their sonic environment.
