From 2009 to 2012 I followed the licence of mechanical engineering at UPMC for one purpuse, to make a master of acoustics. After first year of acoustic engineeringI had to choose between different areas of acoustics, such as musical acoustics, room acoustics or environemental acoustics.

I'll finally chose the "physical" side of acoustics following the M2 called ACIEN (standing for industrial and environemental acoustics) with some options such as underwater acoustics.

During my frist year of Master i had courses about:
  • General acoustics
  • Transducers and instruments
  • Continuum mechanics (solid and fluid)
  • Waves and vibrations
  • Signal processing (generalities)
  • Numerical methods
  • Numerical processing in acoustic
  • Acoustics : ins and applications
  • Acoustic and vibrating linear systems
  • Acoustics et thermal of buidings

  • The second year of the Master was talking about :
  • Acoustics in dissipative fluids
  • Acoustic radiation and imaging
  • Acoustic radiation of structures et Aéroacoustique
  • Metrology sound phenomena
  • Signal processing in acoustics
  • Numerical methods for acoustics
  • Noise and vibrations reduction methods
  • Underwater acoustics
  • Geoacoustics
  • Different kind of projects have been realised during those two years and particularly

  • a project of vibration calculation by Finite Element Method (FEM)
  • a project of radiation calculation by Boundary Element Method (BEM)
  • a project treating of Resonant Ultrasound Spectroscopy(RUS)
