Sound and Vibration track

Sound and Vibration is one of the tracks within the master's programme in Engineering Mechanics at KTH. This programme gives you a platform for a successful career in industry or continuation towards a PhD.

Everywhere in our modern society we are exposed to sound and vibrations. From the pleasant sound of birdsong or music through sound carrying information to unpleasant or even harmful noise and vibration from, for instance, traffic and construction work. Applications of technical acoustics cover a very wide field, from applied mathematics via signal processing to engines, transport and building technology. The Marcus Wallenberg Laboratory for Sound and Vibration Research (MWL) is a part of the Department of Aeronautical and Vehicle Engineering at KTH, and is the largest university centre in northern Europe in the area of sound and vibrations research. The purpose of the programme is to make it possible for students to learn advanced topics in noise and vibration control, especially in the field of vehicle engineering. Students may also develop their own specialisation, through numerous elective courses. The programme has a good balance between theoretical studies and practical applications.
