Educational Objectives:

Professional Competence

Theoretical Knowledge

The students possess an in-depth knowledge in acoustics regarding room acoustics and computational methods and are able to give an overview of the corresponding theoretical and methodical basis.

Capabilities

The students are capable to handle engineering problems in acoustics by theory-based application of the demanding computational methods and procedures treated within the module.

Personal Competence

Social Competence

Students can work in small groups on specific problems to arrive at joint solutions.

Autonomy

The students are able to independently solve challenging acoustical problems in the areas treated within the module. Possible conflicting issues and limitations can be identified and the results are critically scrutinized.
