Thesis work

Many of our employees have joined Efterklang through their thesis work. It’s a great opportunity to build valuable relationships within the business and to start off your career!

To us it’s a win-win situation. We welcome students to learn from our experts within the areas of acoustics, noise, vibration and sound design to provide useful insights and know-how from our daily work. At the same time, we nurture our connections to academia and keep up to date on the latest research.

Every year we welcome master thesis students to our offices in Scandinavia. To facilitate a valuable relationship between student and mentor, we offer students to come sit with us and to take part of assignments such as site visits, measurements and inspections. For students within design and architecture, we offer workshops and insights to our creative process.

As we work in the interface between engineering and design, we have a cooperation with the Royal College of Music in Stockholm. We wish to welcome more students with an artistic approach to challenges related to sound and design. Please visit our partner page for more information.

Thesis statements

We have a long list of thesis statements, just ideas of course! You are most certainly welcome to suggest research topic as well. We have listed a few statements below or you can browse our career portal to find ideas for your thesis work.

Please note that even though the thesis statements are in English, the thesis can also be in Swedish or Norwegian.

  • Combined solutions for noise and air quality – A study of solutions that can be beneficial for air quality and at the same time reduce noise.
  • Quantification of perceived sound environments – Develop a method for objectively assessing sound environments based on different parameters such as sharpness loudness, temporal variation and low frequency content. How can such parameters be used in exploitation planning?
  • Auralization for interactive noise maps – Noise studies present sound in decibel levels which is hard to relate to. To enhance the perceived noise level, auralization can be performed to synthesize the noise and make it audiable. The scope of the thesis is to apply existing codes of auralization so they can be used in realtime in an interactive way for noise maps of cities. The complexity is to integrate the codes for auralization in GIS so it relates to the environment with roads, railway, airplanes, buildings, terrain and other barriers.
