what can acoustic engineers do in the aerospace industry?
i really want to go to UConn, for mechanical engineering, but im going to use University of Hartford as a back up if i dont get in, but for acoustics and music. if i go to hartford could i still get a masters in mechanical engineering if i wanted too? i know i want to work in the aerospace industry. what would an acoustic engineer do? would i be able to get on the job training to work on more mechanical stuff?
Question answered by Lex Lodge
I don't know what the specific schools might require, but can suggest that acoustics and aerospace are no strangers. Vibration testing via sound sensing is employed quite widely.
I've finally decided I want to study acoustics engineering, but where do I start and where do I aim for?
I haven't found any programs for acoustic engineers; all I know is I need to be studying lots of physics and mathematics. I love music, I've been playing music for 90 percent of my life and I also love math - I thought I finally found a dream job, but I can't find much on Princeton Review or College Review sites on this major / study. Help please! Thank you so much, and Happy New Year!

A degree in electrical engineering will probably be your best bet for getting in to a field related to music & technology. I don't believe you will find an accredited program in "acoustic engineering", but you'll get plenty of background in signals, amplifier design, etc with a EE degree.
What's the difference between "Acoustic" and "Acoustical"?
What is the difference between "Acoustic Engineering" and "Acoustical Engineering" and which one is correct? Acoustical is an adjective (right?) but I'm lost as to what is being modified and if there is a difference in meaning.

Acoustic Engineering is right
How can I mix electrical engineering with music?
I am an electrical engineering student ,but I dont know what to do when I graduate. I like music and I want to do something with music. I have heard of audio/sound or acoustic engineering, but I don't know exactly what an audio/sound or acoustic engineer does.
Question answered by moody s
this question really attract me, i am also electrical engineer but graduated 12 years a go and built good experience in electrification of buildings and infrastructure, but still i love music and i still dreaming to work and may be to study the sound engineering
I think answering your question is not hard these engineers are into(music and sound) they are designing testing and operating electronic equipments used to record,produce and mix sounds , you can find them in music industry,concerts,film making, radio stations...etc
you can get more info from the net(check this one as example http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos109.htm ) , if you really interested give it a try, especially for you as you are still in university, I do not know if it is easy for them to find a job and how much they are getting(if you have some info,please let me know), also not sure whether they are considered as engineers or technician ,do not know if this profession is regulated like the profession of electrical engineer
wish you all the best, keep in touch
how to become an industrial acoustic and vibration engineer. is there any institutes offering PG in this disci?
I am a mechanical engineer. I would like to become an industrial acoustic and vibration engineer but i have not much knowledge about the procedures for becoming an acoustic engineer. Is there any institutes offering such courses of acoustics and vibration??
Question answered by Marsyas Weeps
I don't know how I missed your question, but the answer is: absolutely.
I am unsure about India, but two leading institutions here are Institute of Sound Vibration Research at Southampton University and Salford University, both of whom offer PhD courses.
In addition, there are MSc courses sponsored and accredited by the Institute of Acoustics, with principal courses provided by South Bank University and Napier Univeristy, with strong associations to other leading institutions across the UK, including NPL.
Why do some tell others that they can't do something because of their gender?
Why do some tell others that they can't do something because of their gender?
Women are told they must be able to cook, clean, etc, because they're women.
Men are told they can obviously fix a car and build etc because they're men.
Throughout my life I have been told that I cannot do many things simply because I'm female. I have always been highly interested in Mathematics, Physics, Technology, Acoustics and Engineering - leading me to want a career as a Sound/Acoustic Engineer. My parents always told me I couldn't possibly be an Engineer since that is a man's career.
I am currently studying a degree in Audio Acoustics and have had many comments regarding my gender "How can you do that? You're a woman!"
On the other hand, I am an awful cook and cannot easily create a dish that is completely edible, but many people assure me that I must be an amazing cook as I'm a woman.
Any question I make I suddenly get labelled as a Man-hating Feminist.
I also put 'some', implying this might not be done by everyone or to everyone, but it is very common where I live.

there are a lot of men and women who have skills gone wasted because they are told they can't try new things or are afraid to try things. all jobs these days are unisex - women are encouraged to go into male dominated careers and vice versa. but if someone is constantly told they shouldn't do it, then its becomes a mental block in their lives. parents from old fashioned eras will give the wrong advice to their kids. everyone should have the chance to prove themselves. talent gone wasted become of gender discrimination is wrong. you don't know you can do something until you try it. good luck with your studies and please prove everyone who doubted you wrong.
What engineering degree should I take and what college to accompany it?
I am taking up engineering. What would be some similar and beneficial majors to look at. I will probably get more than one since I am planning to run my dad's business. I'm looking at architecture, civil engineering, and electrical engineering majors. Maybe two of them. I don't know which ones are in the most demand or anything. I can also go to any college in the United States to learn these things. I'd also like to know a good college to teach me engineering. Any advice?
Question answered by It's not magic, it's physics!
The different engineering disciplines are different beasts. Many of the mathematical skills will be the same (calculus differentiation and integration, sometimes partial differential equations), but the laws and concepts to understand will be very different.
Civil engineering deals with static (not moving) physics and strengths of materials, as well as large water systems and geological things. Beginning pay is around $40,000/yr, and there's not a particularly high demand for them. In my intro engineering class, about 60% of the students were majoring in civil engineering.
Mechanical engineering deals more with dynamic physics (things that move) as well as a lot of fluid dynamics (pumps, valves and pressure, and hydraulics) and thermodynamics. There's also a little bit of programming involved, such as configuring electronic controls. Base pay is around $40,000 per year, and about 35% of the students in my intro class were majoring in mechanical engineering.
Electrical engineering deals (obviously) with electricity. There are generally two aspects of it. There is the higher voltage aspect, such as power systems, and there is the lower voltage aspect, such as electronics and wireless communications. Electrodynamics and electrostatics can get very difficult - calculating electric fields becomes especially difficult when dealing with anything that has corners, because you have to use integration and partial integration to do it. There is also a lot of programming involved in both aspects. Pay generally starts at around $50,000 per year, but it's hard NOT to find a job - people will come to you. This is what I'm majoring in - specifically, electronics and signal processing.
Computer engineering is much like electrical engineering, only much more focused on computer systems than any other electrical systems. They have to understand computer architecture, and they deal with how to physically create memory and how to store and access it, as well as know how to tell a machine how to do something. They have to know how to build hardware to handle different things. There is tons of programming involved, as well as very interesting problem-solving techniques using algorithms. Base pay is about $50,000 per year, and people will come to you.
Chemical engineering is very difficult stuff, but also very rewarding as well. The guys who figure out how to make stuff go boom? Chemical engineers. The guys who figured out how to make your scratch-resistant glasses, shatterproof bottles, and your oh-so-soft memory foam mattress? Also chemical engineers. A lot of them work for oil companies (because that falls under organic chemistry), but they are needed for a lot of things. The hard part? Chemistry is a difficult concept for most people to grasp anyway, but add that to a whole bunch of psycho partial differential equations, and that's your job. There is a huge demand for them, and the starting pay is over $60,000.
There are other engineering fields out there, but generally they would fall under either degrees in physics, chemistry, or computer science. Some examples would be acoustic engineering, metallurgical engineering, software engineering, and biomedical engineering.
How do u get rid of scratchy noise in acoustic guitar?
I record with my acoustic guitar with a microphone but every time I change chords, it creates a high-pitched scratch noise. I change chords oftenly so the noise becomes annoying and hurtful in the ears. Is there a way to lessen the noise like a substance or something?
Question answered by KrudKutter
That's string noise and it's perfectly normal. Pro recording engineers use "equalization" to isolate the frequency of the "scratch" and reduce it.
You can do the same by trying different mic positions, use a different microphone, etc. Try moving the mic a few inches this way or that around the soundhole until you find the position that picks up the least string noise. If you have a tone control on your recording rig, you can try cutting a little high treble (but remember that will also cut sound of what you're playing).
You can also reduce finger noise by using a spray lube like "Finger-Ease" - it's a silicon spray that makes your strings much slicker. Google it - any music store will sell it.
Hope this helps.
What's the average salary of a sound engineer?
I'm planning on majoring in sound engineering in college. Don't know what I'm gonna do with it exactly yet but I was just curious of the average salary. Thanks!
Question answered by Jim
Depends what you do with it, and where. Acoustic engineers make about the same as other engineers. Dudes who ride gain at rock concerts, not so much.
What is the diference between Acoustic Engineering and Musical Engineering?
Please help! I would like to know the difference between these two studies, and see if I would like to study them.
