#ExploreAcoustics

Which career is all about sound, yet few people have ever heard of it?

The answer is acoustics – and there’s now the chance to hear much more about it following the launch of our new initiative from ANC, designed to attract more students in to the industry.

#ExploreAcoustics

ANC is the professional body representing consultants in acoustics, noise and vibration in the UK – and many of their members are reporting a shortage of graduates. 

In fact, in a complete trend reversal compared with other sectors, there are often more acoustics jobs available than there are graduates. 

“There are few other careers that can offer the financial rewards, opportunities for travel, and such diverse work opportunities than acoustics. Yet few people have even heard of it. ‘Explore Acoustics’ gives the chance to find out more.”

The ANC’s ‘Explore Acoustics’ initiative demonstrates the wide range of opportunities available to students interested in a career in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, (STEM).

It includes video interviews and in-depth case studies featuring students, graduates, professionals and academics in the industry.

There is now an Apprenticeship Scheme and you can find out more here.
