Boost your CV by studying abroad; graduate with a double degree from two internationally acclaimed universities; spend one year abroad, and gain a unique specialization in Engineering Acoustics.
Engineering acoustics is an exciting area focusing on multidisciplinary studies of sound and vibration phenomena.
One of the fundamentals of sound is that it is always perceived by someone. Students in this programme learn to manage the vibrations that cause sound and gain practical experience in manipulating sound movement.
The dual degree in Engineering Acoustics spans over a large area of topics such as e.g. human hearing and reaction to sound, acoustic measurement methods, electroacoustic systems, architectural acoustics, environmental acoustics, and noise and vibration control and will give you the capability to work with a number of different important areas such as improving speech intelligibility for the hearing impaired, reducing hazardous noise levels in residential areas and working environments, or improving the sound reproduction from a loudspeaker system.
The programme covers a wide range of topics within acoustics—including the fundamentals of sound propagation, advanced measurement techniques, and understanding and modelling of the normal and impaired human hearing system.
Studying abroad jump-starts your career as employers are always looking for graduates with an international outlook and intercultural competencies. Upon graduation you are eligible to enter a PhD programme, but you are also qualitied for demanding positions in industry.
The dual degree in Engineering Acoustics provides a good basis for employment opportunities within fields such as for example the hearing aid industry, with measuring equipment manufacturers, and with firms of engineering consultants.
Typical fields of work
After completion of the dual degree in Engineering Acoustics your will be able to analyze and handle complex acoustic problems and identify advanced technological solutions to these problems. Typical fields of work will be:
• development of measuring methods and equipment
• consultancy in connection with, e.g., construction projects
• noise control
• working environment
• design of hearing aids and other assistive devices
• development and testing of sound recording and reproduction systems
• sales and customer support
• sound quality testing
Graduates who wish to qualify for management positions in research and development—be it in industry or academia—will need additional intensive and solid research education.
Graduating the MSc programme with a high grade point average may qualify you for admission to PhD studies—either as an industrial PhD with concurrent employment in a company, or as a regular PhD student.

Admission and deadlines
1 December – for start in the fall semester
1 June – for start in the spring semester*
*Students who started at DTU on 1 September may send the application form by 10 September.
The KAIST-DTU Dual Degree Master’s program is only open to students, who have been formally admitted to DTU’s regular MSc in Engineering Acoustics programme. Therefore, it is not possible to apply for admission directly to the dual degree program.
How to apply
1. Fill in the application form
2. Hand in the application form + supporting documents to DTU International Affairs Office
3. DTU International Affairs Office will register and forward the applications to the Programme coordinator
4. The Programme coordinator will consult their counterparts and select the most eligible students
5. The Programme coordinator will inform DTU International Affairs Office about their decision
6. DTU International Affairs Office will inform the students and issue Nomination Letters
• Motivated and dedicated students
• Above average GPA
• Strong English Language skills.
Pre-approval of courses
• Courses taken abroad at KAIST must be approved by the DTU professor responsible for the individual Dual Degree programme.
Students have the possibility of spending one year at KAIST during 3 different periods as indicated below. However, it is strongly recommended that students – especially international students – spend at least their 1st and even 2nd semester of their master studies at DTU in order to get familiar with the university, study program and fellow students.
• Period One: 1st + 2nd semester
• Period Two: 2nd + 3rd semester
• Period Three: 3rd + 4th semester (writing Master Thesis abroad with both KAIST and DTU supervisor – examination at DTU)
