|Cassey Stypowany’12 & Clint Fleming ‘11|
Acoustical Engineering students participated in the first annual Undergraduate Research Exposition at the national Acoustical Society of America meeting in San Diego, CA, Oct. 31st – Nov. 4th, 2011.
|Chris Jasinski ‘12|
Chris Jasinski ‘12, a double major in Acoustical Engineering & Music and Classical Percussion Performance in The Hartt School, presented a summary of three research projects carried out on the topic of the just noticeable difference (JND) or smallest difference detectable of a room acoustics parameter clarity index (C80). Chris worked on one of the projects and helped mentor the follow-up study. All six students who worked on one of the phases of the project were co-authors on the poster.
