My name is Natalie, and in this blog, I am going to write about a lot of different energy practices. I plan to write about solar panels, indoor air filtration, wind farms and whatever else strikes my fancy when I'm writing. I want to focus on easy and efficient energy practices, and I hope to explain how those practices can benefit the earth. My interest in energy and the environment started when I was just a teen. I attended a camp where we studied the environment whilst also doing a lot of foraging, hiking and other things that allowed us to engage with nature. From that week onward, I've wanted to change the world and its relationship with energy. I hope this blog is just the start.
When you go into acoustical engineering, you may be thinking about the straight career path into the industry. In fact, most jobs that you will initially find will be listed as acoustical engineer positions at varying levels. There are several jobs within the field that should be considered as well. Here are four of those jobs and what you should know about each option.
Audio Device Engineer
One of the positions available to acoustical engineer is a job in audio device engineering. This position deals with sound capturing, audio processing, and the system mechanics that work directly with sound propagation. This job may deal with specific areas, such as sound boards, or may deal with the audio device set-up such as microphones and speakers. If you want to break into the music industry or work within theatre, then this may be the ideal job path for your acoustical engineering degree.
One position you may not have considered is vibrational engineer. A vibration engineer works with the audio engineer to regulate the vibration and noise control from speakers, microphones, and other audio equipment. They work with the balance of the vibration to offer crisp and clean sounds to the audience. This job also deals with reducing feedback and ensuring that someone in the back of the area hears the same level of music as someone in the front of the listening area.
Loudspeaker Research Engineer
A loudspeaker research engineer works directly with acoustic companies that create, manufacturer, and market loudspeakers. In most cases, you would work with designers and test prototypes for new loudspeakers that would be available to both the professional and private purchasing sectors. This job is ideal if you want something that is in development and research rather than directly in theatre or the music industry.
An aspect of acoustical engineering that you may not have considered is in the automotive industry. Acoustical engineers work directly with car manufacturers and mechanics to help with vibration issues that can cause problems with tires and other parts of the car. This position does require a graduate degree in most cases. You will also need some background in mechanical as well as acoustical engineering.
These are just four of the positions available to you as a graduate from an accredited acoustical engineering program. If you believe you are ready to move forward with any of these career options, speak to a job placement counsellor or visit your local employment staffing office. For more information, contact a business such as Audiometric & Acoustic Services.Share
