Upon successful completion of the course, students will gain the knowledge around issues of sound, the way of propagation, dissemination of human hearing etc. Of particular importance is the diversity of opinion that exists in the department's students about the difference between electromagnetic waves and those of sound that requires completely different approach and disengagement from the daily habit of other subjects of the electromagnetic field.
Course Content (Syllabus)
In the technical sciences, special relationship has the audio with the mechanics (vibration) the electrical equipment (electroacoustic), chemistry (ultrasound) and architecture, in relation to the wave propagation in enclosed spaces and sound protection. The link between acoustics and art are the research of the room acoustics of music theatres and music halls, not only for live transmission but also through electroacoustic systems over long distances such as radio and television broadcasting. We see the evident relationship between electroacoustics and telecommunications. The quality problem of transmissions led to research on human hearing and voice speech. Such investigations belong to biology and, more specifically, in psychology and physiology. Physiology and medicine is another area of acoustics named bioacoustics. The science that deals with the effect of sounds (ultrasonic) to the organizations with great utility in diagnostic and treatment.
Theory of sound, wave propagation, hearing mechanism, psychoacoustics, the decibel scale, loudness, masking effects, room acoustics, reverberation, acoustic noise, microphones, loudspeakers, sound reinforcement systems.
