I am a Hong Kong student just finished Cert Exam and am interested in
studying acoustic engineering in university, I wonder if there is any
university providing this course? not necessary to be in Hong Kong...

and there is one problem. i did not study AMaths in HKCEE, so i am not
allowed to have Pure Maths in Alevel. Is that there is no way that i
can take engineering in university?

The pennsylvania State University (Penn State) has excellent schools in
acoustics.

Study math on your own time.

Ask to to take a qualifying exam for entrance.

Most university programs in acoustics are at the graduate level, that is
Masters and PhD level rather than BS level. Thus, in most cases, your first
step is to get an undergraduate BS level degree that includes significant
mathmatics. The graduate programs in acoustics tend to be be understanding
of people with various backgrounds who are interested in acoustics. I am
aware of a few well organized undergraduate or BS level programs in
acoustics. One is at the University of Hartford
http://uhaweb.hartford.edu/celmer/acsprog1.html. In the US there are a few
schools of architectural engineering with professors of acoustics who help
undergraduate students with several electives in acoustics. The University
of Kansas probably has the strongest of these programs. There are
undergraduate programs at Columbia College in Chicago and a joint program
between Johns Hopkins University and the Peabody school of music that
emphasize audio systems and recording but also provide courses in general
acoustics. I know there are programs in other countries as well though I am
not a familiar with their details.

ISVR is well established and probably the largest in Europe:

but there are several others of varying flavours.

At the "high tech" end of engineering many subjects use mathematics a
lot. Talk to the departments you are interested in about minimum
requirements and whether they have internal courses to address
deficiencies. Many universities run "foundation courses" or equivalents
which address the lack of subjects like mathematics and can be taken
while at the university.

Hi Luvcheteen,

As you told us you have finished the HKCEE, that means you have to study
another 2 years for matriculation study (such as A-Level) before entering
any university for a degree course.

If I am correct, you will not take any of Pure Math or Applied Math in
A-Level in coming years. I quite suggest you to take a course in Pure-Math
in A-Level by yourself and attend a AL exam. It seems that P.Math is a
basic requirement of many engineering courses. Honestly, you have nearly
no chance to study a degree in engineering in HK if you dont have P.Math
result.
