The field of acoustic or acoustical engineering is the discipline of engineering that deals with sound and vibration. It is the application of acoustics (the science of sound and vibration) in technology.

Acoustic engineering can be used to reduce unwanted noise, also known as noise control. Other applications of acoustic engineering may include the use of sound in:

  • Ultrasound in medicine or hospitals
  • Digital sound synthesisers
  • Public sound announcement systems

Acoustic engineers perform tasks to:

  • Design sound systems
  • Investigate human reactions to sound and vibration
  • Create audio signal software

At the bottom of this profile are brief details of a number of the experts that Expert Experts represents. Call our office to discuss your requirements and to obtain a recommendation that suits your needs and budget.
