BSc Engineering students invited on tour of the DTU Sound Labs

On 22nd February 2019, the 'House of Acoustics' opened its doors to 55 BSc students. The students, who are already enrolled in a selection of Engineering programs at DTU, had all expressed an interest in music, audio, architecture, hearing, vibration or multimedia technology, and the aim of the day was to introduce them to the Danish sound industry, to the MSc program in Engineering Acoustics and to the wider professional options within the sector.  

The organiser of the Open Day, Associate Professor Efrén Fernandez Grande, started by introducing the students to the MSc program in Engineering Acoustics and the afternoon was spent touring the labs in several small guided groups. Each group visited a series of demonstrations which had been set up in the Large Anechoic Chamber, the Audio-Visual Immersion lab, the Electrophysiology lab, the Structrual Vibration labs, the Reverberation Chambers and the Virtual Reality Station. The demos each illustrated topics like audio, hearing, vibration and architectual acoustics. 

"It was very rewarding to see so many students who are genuinely interested in sound related technology "
Efrén Fernandez Grande

Efrén sees the open day as a real success. "It is very gratifying to let these students experience the acoustic and hearing  laboratories and to explain to them what we do, and to make them aware of the leading role Denmark plays in sound related science and technology. It is also valuable to raise awareness of the importance of acoustics and hearing as a crucial element in the wellbeing of society, and explain how acoustic engineers make a difference in the world"


With all the positive feedback received, we well definetely repeat this experience.
