class room lecture 2013

Dresden University of Technology - Germany

Prof. Dr. Ing. habil. Wolfgang Klippel is Honorary Professor for Electro-Acoustics at the Institute of Acoustics and Speech Communication giving lectures in “Active Control of Sound and Vibration” and “Sound Quality of Audio Systems”.

"Sound Quality of Audio Systems" is held as a block seminar (3 day lecture) in English and is open for students from other universities and participants from the audio industry.


Prof. Klippel offers training courses with an introduction to the fundamentals of loudspeaker meaurements, practical exercises, movies, examples and multiple-choice tests. These online courses provide great learning material for students of the electro-acoustics.
