- Basic Audiology
- Acoustic modelling software
So far, this is the first online course on Acoustical Engineering and it has been designed to be as straightforward & comprehensive as possible.
With 20 lectures and more than three hours of video, this course leaves no stone unturned! In order for you to get the most out of this course, it includes solved examples to apply what you have learnt and quizzes so you can check your level of understanding after each chapter.
This course will teach you Acoustics in a practical manner rather than getting too deep into the theory and the underlying mathematical concepts, proofs, etc.
We will start by introducing you to the very basic physics of sound, regardless of the subject that you may have studied or not in the university. All you need is some high school algebra, physics and be comfortable with numbers.
We cover a wide variety of topics, including:
Basics of sound.
What is loudness.
How time-varying sound works.
Physiology of the human ear.
How sound spreads outdoors.
How to design the best indoor acoustic environments.
How to achieve good sound insulation.
How to avoid excessive vibrations.
How to make various noisy pieces of equipment as silent as possible.
How microphones work.
What are the most important pieces of software that we acoustic engineers are using.
By completing this course you will be able to advance your career and increase your knowledge, all in a fun and practical way!
Come on board and learn the secrets of the trade, next to an Acoustic Consultant!
Who this course is for:
- Architects that want to design spaces with excellent acoustics.
- Mechanical Engineers that want to reduce the noise & vibration of machinery.
- Builders/Contractors that want to choose the most cost-efficient internal separating constructions or building envelope.
- Interior Designers that want their spaces not to sound echoic.
- University Students that want to learn acoustics.
- Musicians that want to understand better how their instruments work.
- Sound Engineers that want to understand more about recording studios.
- Acoustical Engineers that want to level up their knowledge and seal any knowledge gaps for good!
- Essentially, this course is for anyone who has a particular interest in acoustics.
