The course “Acoustical Measurement Techniques TTT4250,” offered by the Acoustics Group at the Department of Electronic Systems, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, is a fourth-year course in the specialization of acoustics in the five-year master program “Electronics Systems Design and Innovation” or MTELSYS, and the two-year international master program “Electronic Systems Design” or MSELSYS. It is one of the four required courses for MTELSYS and one of the two required courses for MSELSYS. It offers a hands-on approach to acoustics. This paper outlines the topics covered in this course and the involvement of several academic staff members, as well as invited industry and research institute guest speakers, as teachers. The assessment of laboratory reports is described, and general lecture topics, including measurement uncertainty and statistics, the introduction of standards, and programming, are also described. All aspects of the course aim to maximize students' experience with a broad range of acoustic measurements and their interest in acoustics.
