ACOUSTICS AND ELECTROACOUSTICS LABORATORY
SCHOOL OF ELECTRONIC ENGINEERING
The Acoustics and Electroacoustics Laboratory belongs to the School of Electronic Engineering of the Faculty of Sciences, Engineering and Surveying (FCEIA), National University of Rosario (UNR) Among its objectives we can mention several activities such as educational and communital services related to the fields of Acoustics, Electroacoustics, Psychoacoustics, Noise and Vibration Control.
Currently, several graduate courses are being taught in cooperation with the Graduate School of the FCEIA, such as those on Acoustics and Psychoacoustics, on Noise Control, and on Sound Systems. There are also several joint research programs in progress, carried on with The Faculty of Architecture, Planning and Design of the UNR, With the Technical School of Architecture of the Polytechnic University of Catalunya, Spain, and with the Littoral Association of Logopedia, Phoniatrics and Audiology. They range from urban noise to traffic noise modelling and simulation, as well as educational strategies for sound hygiene. As regards to communital action, we can mention noise control projects and acoustic measurement and monitoring.
This laboratory is represented in the Acoustics and Electroacoustics Committee of the Argentine Institute of Standardization (IRAM), and it administrates an e-mail distribution list on urban noise (in Spanish). In 1997 the City Council of Rosario granted to the Laboratory the "Ecologic Rosario", an important award which honours an outstanding action in favour of a better environment.
