Abstract

Architectural Engineering (AE) is a discipline of study that is only currently available at 17 schools across the United States, and even fewer of these AE programs include acoustics as a main option in their curricula. This presentation will review the Nebraska Acoustics Group, housed within the AE Program at the University of Nebraska which began in 1998. Students may study acoustics within any of our five engineering degree programs (BSAE, MAE, MEng, MS and PhD). Currently there are two AE faculty out of 11 who focus in acoustics at Nebraska, and the program regularly offers at least six recurring acoustics courses. Descriptions of the acoustics courses, the research interests of the Nebraska Acoustics Group, and where our graduates are to date will be given. Specifically highlighted will be the theme of our acoustics group: to promote the advancement and science of architectural acoustics by closely tying our coursework and research to practice in the 'real-world'.
