ARCH 4840 - Architectural Acoustics 1


This course provides an overview of the essentials for architectural acoustics design of performance and public spaces, including concert halls, theaters, museums, classrooms, sports arenas, courtrooms, and religious buildings. There are no prerequisites, but the course may be used as the starting point for a certificate in Architectural Acoustics, a concentration in an architecture student’s professional electives, or the beginning of a master’s degree in acoustics. The course covers basic principles of sound, room acoustics, sound absorption in rooms, sound isolation and privacy, acoustics of mechanical systems, and sound quality. After both Architectural Acoustics 1 and 2, the student should be prepared for a basic entry-level position in either acoustics in architecture or in acoustical consulting.

When Offered: Fall term annually.



Credit Hours: 4
