Please note! Course description is confirmed for two academic years (1.8.2018-31.7.2020), which means that in general, e.g. Learning outcomes, assessment methods and key content stays unchanged. However, via course syllabus, it is possible to specify or change the course execution in each realization of the course, such as how the contact sessions are organized, assessment methods weighted or materials used.
The student understands basic acoustical measurements and can perform measurements with standard techniques. The student is also familiar with more advanced techniques and is well aware of limitations and problems in measurements. Moreover, the student can interpret the results and understands the uncertainties of different measurement techniques.
