Student Organization - UNASA

University of Nebraska Acoustical Society of America (UNASA)

Welcome to the UNASA Student Chapter website! We were the first ASA student chapter established, thanks to Dr. Erica Bowden Ryherd's efforts. Our student chapter brings the exciting world of acoustics into the University of Nebraska community. Chapter meetings focus on topics from many areas of acoustics, usually incorporating demonstrations, interactive activities, and presentations of scholarly work. Of course, there will always be plenty of food and fun!

The Acoustical Society of America (ASA) is a world-renowned scientific society in acoustics, dedicated to increasing and diffusing knowledge of acoustics and its practical applications. The Society is extremely interdisciplinary, covering thirteen sub-areas in the field of acoustics:
  • Acoustical Oceanography

  • Biomedical Ultrasound/ Bioresponse to Vibration
  • Engineering Acoustics
  • Musical Acoustics
  • Noise
  • Physical Acoustics
  • Psychological and Physiological Acoustics
  • Signal Processing in Acoustics

The ASA also has a very active Student Council.
