The University of Hartford has relocated and rebuilt its Acoustics Engineering Laboratory as part of a new Integrated Science, Engineering and Technology (ISET) facility on its campus. The new laboratory provides acoustic and vibration testing capabilities that allow undergraduate acoustical engineering students to work on a variety of real-world acoustic design and research problems for industry, foundations, and the community. Eckel's patented E-Element anechoic absorption units were used for the floor surface instead of a more conventional wedge. Projects are negotiated for their appropriateness and starting times and scope, enabling the task to work within the confines of a semester course. Alumni of undergraduate programs have successfully obtained positions in consulting, audio product and A/v design, musical instrument design, hearing and psycho- acoustic-related design, noise control, as well as to pursue graduate degrees.
