ANC campaign raises the voice of acoustics in Tomorrow’s Engineers Week


The Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) will be setting out the benefits of a sound career choice in acoustics as the UK gears up to promote the opportunities in engineering next week.

To mark Tomorrow’s Engineers Week, which runs from 5-9 November, the ANC will be sharing experiences and insight from academics, graduates and those in the acoustics profession through its #ExploreAcoustics initiative.

Designed to attract more students in to the industry, #ExploreAcoustics has been created by the ANC to demonstrate the wide range of opportunities available to students interested in a career in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, (STEM).

Featuring video interviews and in-depth case studies, all the information can be found at

ANC is the professional body representing consultants in acoustics, noise and vibration in the UK – and many of its 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.

Returning for the sixth year in 2018, Tomorrow’s Engineers Week (#TEWeek18) aims to change perceptions of engineering among young people, their parents and teachers and to inspire future engineers.

STEM Ambassador Vicky Stewart is one of the professionals featured in #ExploreAcoustics. Vicky said: “Tomorrow’s Engineers Week provides a great opportunity to highlight the opportunities in acoustics.

“Few people have heard of this as a career choice, which is why we have developed #ExploreAcoustics to raise awareness.

“Roles in the industry are wide-ranging and include openings in architectural and building acoustics, environmental noise, product design, cinema sound, even sonar and ultrasound.”
