What have you learned during your studies that you can apply in working life?
I found my current job as a building acoustics consultant at Ramboll Finland Oy through Aalto University’s Career Services. The methods applied during the courses, as well as the completed assignments, will certainly be useful in the future.
In my experience, this field is particularly suitable for persons who are interested in sounds and music. Because of my own musical background, I have found it inspiring that the courses have offered me new perspectives on music. It is quite natural that many of the students have a background in music, but, of course, it is not a prerequisite for succeeding here.
What does the future look like for the field?
In my view, those who study acoustics and audio technology have good employment prospects. The field is becoming increasingly topical – for example, more and more attention is paid to acoustics in construction, and thanks to the companies focusing on virtual reality, there is demand for the development of virtual acoustics. I can see that this education is appreciated, as students with a Finnish degree in acoustics are easily recruited for tasks related to building acoustics, for example.
