Careers In Acoustics?

  1. Apr 20, 2010 #1
    I want to study acoustics but not sure what kind of work is out there. I would also like to be able to use my electrical engineering skills. What kinds of careers out there will involve use Electrical Engineering and Acoustics?

    On the web page of the Acoustical Society of America, http://asa.aip.org/" [Broken], you can find links to article titles and their abstracts from their Journal. Most of the authors are in academia.

    The Audio Engineering Society, http://www.aes.org/" [Broken], also lets you see Journal abstracts. Some of these authors are in industry.

    All phones and computers involve acoustics. Cars too, multi-channel sound systems, acoustic cancellation of road and engine noise, beam-steering a multi-microphone array to point a null at the open window to cancel wind turbulence noise and a peak towards the driver for voice pickup. Modeling of acoustic musical instruments, with a view toward software recreation.

    Electrical engineering is a good fit with acoustics.
