Faculties and centres
It is recommended to take this course after passing the following exams:
Subject is taught in the first four months of the third year, after Acoustics, Fundamentals of Engineering Optics (first four months of second year) and Acoustic Transducers (last four months of second year).
Insulation and soundproofing is conceptually supported by the concepts taught in the second year subjects. On the other hand, the fundamentals of the subject will be supplemented and deepened in Vibroacoustics and Acoustic Design of Venues, subjects that are conceived as an extension of this subject.
