Careers for Engineers: Acoustics!

Posted by EiE Team on Tuesday, August 17, 2021

We’re thrilled to announce the launch of EiE Careers for Engineers, a new online experience for kids ages 7-12 to explore STEM careers. One type of engineer featured in the interactive Careers quiz is acoustical engineering!

Acoustic and audio engineers understand the mechanics of measuring, testing, recording, mixing, and reproducing sound. This can be any kind of sound — from music to conversation in a busy park. The work of acoustic engineers is often hidden in plain sight!

What kinds of jobs do acoustical engineers do?

→ Audio engineers who capture and record music

→ Environmental acoustic engineers who test how sound impacts the world around us

→ Architectural acoustic engineers who see what sound will be like in offices and plazas

Click here to see a video about how to use acoustical engineering to make sound!

More about Careers for Engineers

Careers for Engineers offers a personality-style quiz that shows kids how their interests connect to a career in an engineering field. After taking the quiz, children are presented with fun, colorful infographics packed with key facts about their engineer career match. Each infographic also includes links to other EiE and Museum of Science resources. Parents, caregivers, and educators can skip the quiz and download all five infographics directly. All resources (webpage, quiz and infographics) are available in both English and Spanish.

You’ll find the quiz in the Families section of the EiE website, on the MOS at Home page and coming soon to the learn.eie learning platform.
