Acoustics and audio research has been conducted at Salford University for over 60 years. It is funded by research councils, Innovate UK, government and industry. Our research has fed into products that companies make and sell worldwide, as well as regulations and standards used around the world.

We currently have about twenty research active staff and a lively community of PhD students. Staff and students have won numerous awards for their research.

We have world-class acoustics laboratories: listening rooms, reverberation rooms, anechoic chambers, an accredited calibration laboratory and state of the art equipment and instrumentation. Through the laboratories we are able to bring much of our fundamental research into real life applications.
