In short about acoustics and the chair of acoustics and acoustoelectronics:

The general role of acoustics in the modern world is very well described by the well-known American acoustic scientist Bruce Lindsey (R. Bruce Lindcey), known as «Lindsey’s Acoustic Wheel»

(Below we present this scheme, adapted to the Ukrainian language).

It highlights four areas of human activity in which acoustic knowledge is important: Life Sciences, Earth Sciences, Art, Engineering. The central place in this chart is the fundamental research in acoustics, which is united by the general name – physical acoustics.

The chair of acoustics and acoustoelectronics was founded in 1936.

Over the past years, about 4,000 specialists in the field of acoustics have been trained. 5 pupils of the department were awarded the State Prizes. Among the graduates of the department are 2 academicians, 12 doctors of sciences and more than 60 candidates of sciences. The training of specialists is carried out using modern educational programs and computer technologies.

Students’ training is carried out in specialized laboratories and auditoriums of the department.
Future specialists receive practical experience at enterprises and research institutes. Students’ training is provided by 12 candidates and 7 doctors of technical sciences. Studying at the department, students have the opportunity, in parallel with the basic education, to obtain a second higher education in the NTUU “KPI” in the areas of management, marketing, business economics, economic security, and others.

At the stage of undergraduate and master’s studies, students study basic academic disciplines (mathematics, physics, mechanics, computer science, programming, engineering and computer graphics, disciplines of the humanities, etc.), as well as professionally-oriented disciplines of acousto-electronic profile (theory of electric circuits, bases electronics, theory of processes and systems, theoretical basis of acoustics, applied acoustics, analog and digital circuitry, electroacoustic converters, measurement on sound and ultrasonic stotah et al.).

Students learn to use software tools for processing acoustic signals and images, simulation of measuring loudspeakers, as well as designing acoustic devices and systems. Particular attention is devoted to the design of measuring and diagnostic instruments, the development of acoustic equipment, equipment for home and professional sound recording studios, ultrasound computer systems for introscopy and tomography, etc.

Specialization “Acoustic multimedia technologies and systems”:

Within the framework of the specialization “Acoustic multimedia technologies and systems” the study of the basics of electronics and acoustics is envisaged. Particular attention is paid to the application and development of acoustic devices and devices for use in multimedia environments. Thus, students study all the issues related to the development of ultrasound range finders (so-called acoustic roulettes), meters of the levels of liquid and friable media (gasoline, grain, etc.), hydroacoustic devices (echo sounders, hydroacoustic buoys, noise detectors), acoustic non-destructive testing devices (flaw detectors, thickness gauges).

Training on new information technologies, use of modern software packages for modeling and analysis of various acoustic processes and signals of various nature, processing of acoustic images is underway. Within the specialization there is an opportunity to get knowledge about network technologies based on CISCO NetAcademy.

Graduates work in design departments for the design of converters for various types of environments (State Enterprise “Kiev Research Institute of Hydraulic Devices (State Concern” UKROBORONPROM “),” Ultracon-Service “); in companies providing acoustic design services, on information security issues (Security Service of Ukraine); research institutions and companies for the analysis of sound signals of various nature.

Specialization “Acoustic monitoring, bio- and psychoacoustics”:

Specialization “Acoustic monitoring, bio- and psychoacoustics” is primarily devoted to solving the problems of the emergence, transmission and perception of sounds. It includes musical acoustics, which studies the creation of musical sounds (acoustics of musical instruments, acoustics of speech and singing, electroacoustics); the transmission of sounds (architectural acoustics, audio coding in transmission channels) and the perception of sound (psychoacoustics – acoustics of hearing). As part of psychoacoustics, students learn fundamentally new ways of working with sound through computer music technology; develop acoustic systems, create new means of transmitting spatial sound information for digital broadcasting, television, and sound recording.

Much attention is paid to computer modeling of human hearing and speech systems as the basis for the development of new generations of hearing aids and hearing aids. In addition, students review current and highly sought-after modern noise reduction methods in cities, study noise and vibration sources, exposure to noise on the human body, technical, sanitary and environmental noise regulations, acoustic environmental monitoring and acoustic expertise. Not all aspects of bioacoustics are left out of the question, namely: studying the voice of animals, marine bioacoustics, echolocators of bats and dolphins, protection of airplanes from birds by sound, protection from rodents through ultrasound.

Graduates work in institutions for the development and maintenance of acoustic medical equipment (diagnostic ultrasound devices (U.S.), hearing aids (almost all diagnostic centers of Kiev)); concert halls, theaters, recording studios (for example, sound engineers at film studios, theaters), TV channels (M1, STB, ICTV); in the design departments for the analysis of acoustic and vibrational properties of materials (State Research Institute of Building Structures).

Dictionary of Acoustics:


– ways of sound communication between living beings;
– the mechanisms of the formation and reproduction of sounds that are generated by living beings;
– the principles of coding and decoding information transmitted in living bioacoustic systems


– psychological and physiological features of perception of sound by a person;
– ways of deciphering one or another sound image by the auditory system of a person;
– the main correspondences between physical stimuli and auditory sensations;
– the parameters of the sound signal, the most important for the transmission of the content and emotions of the message
