Status Report

Each graduate student enrolled in the program is required to file a status report with the Program Office every semester. A form outlining the general format for this report can be obtained from the Program Office. Such reports are to be nontechnical in nature and should describe the student's progress in meeting the formal requirements for the degree being sought. In particular, it should report plans for actions during the next semester that will lead to such progress. The general intent is to encourage the student to focus on his or her academic objectives and to alert the Program Office to current and potential problems students may be encountering in the timely progress toward their degree.


Founded in 1965, Penn State's Graduate Program in Acoustics has become the leading resource for graduate education in acoustics in the United States. The interdisciplinary program leads to the degrees: Master of Engineering in Acoustics (M.Eng.), Master of Science in Acoustics (M.S.), and Doctor of Philosophy in Acoustics (Ph.D.)
