About this course

Enhance your technical competence and creative thinking in the design, measurement and theory of audio and acoustics. You will gain an understanding of how sound shapes our experience of communication, entertainment, and spatial awareness, opening up a diversity of career paths including audio production, system design and acoustic consulting. With extensive experience analysing and controlling the physical phenomena affecting buildings, practitioners of Architectural Science have a profound impact on the function, aesthetics and efficiency of architectural spaces. Sound is a constant throughout your life"involving, informing and profoundly shaping your experience of communication, entertainment and architectural spaces. This unique and challenging degree will give you a solid foundation in the design, measurement and theory of audio and acoustics. From this foundation you can choose to specialise in an area of interest including acoustics, audio systems and audio production. Throughout the Architectural Science (Audio & Acoustics) Program, you will combine aesthetic sound design, new media, sound recording and system design with acoustic engineering, computer modelling and psychology. You will build on a foundational understanding of the broader aspects of design science (including illumination, building services, sustainable design and indoor environment quality), with access to the Faculty of Architecture's world-class facilities. A broad range of subjects enables you to choose units on specialised knowledge of audio technology and acoustical science. You can extend your coursework-based learning with a research project, and benefit from a diverse offering of electives in recording and sound production.
