PHYS-405 Acoustics (3)


This course examines the physical nature of sound waves in real environments as well as the physiological and psychological aspects of sound as we experience it. Students engage in both the theoretical description of sound as well as conducting experiments to determine the behavior of acoustic systems. The course begins with essential acoustic knowledge that touches on every area of music and audio processing, and then covers more in-depth topics related to students’ particular interests within audio technology. The course culminates with students conducting and presenting an independent research project in a specific area of acoustics and sound. Crosslist: ATEC-405  and ATEC-605 . Prerequisite: ATEC-101  and ATEC-201 .
