Explore the different system components involved in acoustic communication using a representative set of practical applications.

This engineering course is the continuation of the edX course “Fundamentals of Communication Acoustics.” Communication acoustics is defined as the way sounds travel from a source, through a channel and finally to a receiver.

In this follow-course, we will cover a representative set of practical applications and look at the different system components involved in acoustic communication.


What you will learn:

  • Room acoustics
  • Methods for spatial sound capture and presentation
  • Automatic speech recognition
  • Text-to-speech synthesis
  • Product sound design
  • Perceptual Audio Coding

*Based on our experience, the German tax benefits help many of our participants to self-finance their education as these can be worth of up to 50% of tuition fees and program related travel costs. Please, consult your personal tax advisor for more details. For participants of our programs residing outside Germany this might be applicable, please check the situation with the local tax authorities in your country of residence.
