The following information is meant for foreign students, who are studying at Aalto University School of Electrical Engineering and wish to take courses provided by the Acoustics and Audio Signal Processing group. If you are not a student at the School, please read this first.
The starting point for all studies at the Acoustics group, is the course S-89.2300 Sound and Voice Technology. It can be taken in English as well as in Finnish. The lectures and exercises are given in Finnish and foreign students do not neet to participate in those. Instead, you only need to pass the examination, which is based on the course book and exercise material, both in English. The course is held every autumn starting in September.
The course is a required prequisite for almost all other Acoustics courses, so it should be taken first. Visit the course homepage for additional information.
Also other obligatory courses such as S-89.3320 Communication Acoustics and S-89.3210 Acoustics and the Physics of Sound can be taken in English if necessary. Since 2010 Acoustics and the Physics of Sound is lectured in English. Check out the course pages and consult the teacher in charge if needed.
The course S-89.3540 Audio Signal Processing is organized completely in English, including lectures. The course is organized every spring term and it starts on January. Note that there are prequisites for the course (S-89.2300 and T-61.3010 Digital Signal Processing and Filtering or similar digital signal processing studies. Visit the course homepage for additional information.
Also S-89.3460 Spatial Sound is organized completely in English, including lectures. Note that the participation for this course is limited. Visit the course homepage for additional information.
Furthermore, the seminar courses S-89.3480/4810 Acoustics Seminar, S-89.3580/4820 Audio Signal Processing Seminar and S-89.3680/4830 Speech Processing Seminar can usually be taken in English too. The topics for these seminars vary each year, so if you are interested in taking them, please check the course pages for details. However, please note, that seminar courses are primarily meant for the Acoustics and Audio Signal Processing major/minor students and postgraduate students.
If you interested in the Acoustics and Audio Signal Processing major/minor, you may contact the study advisor in acoustics for additional information on courses.
