Acoustical Engineering

Summer University Term 3: July 23rd - August 16th


Course price: 1.850 Euros

18 hours of class a week, 5 ECTS, max. 18 participants


This course covers the fundamentals of engineering acoustics and their application for solving noise control problems and enhancing sound fields in spaces. Students will have the opportunity to work in a well-equipped acoustics laboratory and to be actively involved in a number of different acoustical measurements. An excursion with a successful example of acoustic treatment will demonstrate the practical application of what is taught in the course. Additionally, during a mini project the students will be encouraged to test the obtained skills on practical acoustical problems.

The course is aimed at participants from all engineering majors who want to learn about acoustics and its engineering applications.

Learning Goals & Syllabus


Participants will learn the basic methods and strategies for solving acoustical problems such as:

  • machinery and vehicle noise control
  • sound insulation in buildings
  • acoustics of rooms for music and speech

In addition, students will become familiar with the fundamentals of both theoretical and applied acoustics.

You may find the syllabus useful when discussing with your home University whether the ECTS credits attainable for this course are accepted by them.

Course components:

The course will include:

  • class-room lectures
  • hands-on sessions in the laboratory
  • excursion to an auditorium in Berlin as a practical example of acoustical treatment
  • mini project, which involves a work in small groups


The general prerequisites of the TU Berlin Summer University are the following: at least one year of university experience + English level B2 or equivalent.

In addition, for this course a basic understanding of calculus is required.


Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ennes Sarradj

Ennes Sarradj is a professor of engineering acoustics at Technische Universität Berlin. He has more than 25 years of professional experience both as a researcher in the field of acoustics and noise control, and as an acoustic consultant. He holds a doctorate from Technische Universität Dresden. His research interests include noise control at the source, aeroacoustics, structure-borne sound and acoustical measuring techniques. Starting in 1998, he has taught university courses on a variety of acoustics subjects such as engineering acoustics, noise control, acoustic measurements, and numerical methods in acoustics at different universities. Currently he serves as a review board member of the German Research Foundation and as a member of the board of the German Acoustical Society.


Prof. Dr. Brigitte Schulte-Fortkamp

Brigitte Schulte-Fortkamp is a professor of psychoacoustics and noise effects and teaches courses on related subjects at Technische Universität Berlin. Her research activities include psychoacoustics, acoustic ecology, and soundscapes. She has served as a research professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Boston, Osaka University, and Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris. She is a Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America and an associate editor of the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America. Dr. Schulte-Fortkamp is a Distinguished International Member of the Institute of Noise Control Engineering (INCE USA). In 2011-2012 she served as Vice President of the Acoustical Society of America. In 2010 she was awarded one of the first Hear the World Foundation awards, and in 2012 she received the European Soundscape Award. Currently she serves as vice president for the European Acoustic Association-EAA and as a member of the board of the German Acoustical Society.


Dr. Drasko Masovic

Drasko Masovic is a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Engineering Acoustics of Technische Universität Berlin. He finished the master and doctoral studies at the University of Belgrade – School of Electrical Engineering with the focus on acoustics and audio technology. He worked as a research assistant at the university and a part-time lecturer at the international SAE Institute in Belgrade. Dr. Masovic was also a researcher within an FP7 Marie Curie programme of the European Commission at the Virtual Vehicle Research Centre in Graz. His fields of expertise include room and building acoustics, aeroacoustics and acoustics of moving inhomogeneous media, and numerical acoustics.
