Rehabilitation Therapy - Audiology

Introduction

Audiology is a course that helps to diagnose, treat and prevent hearing impairment. Students should be able to use audiology tools and instruments, such as an otoscope and tuning fork, to carry out auditory detection and give recommendations to the hearing-impaired patient according to their hearing sensitivity for example to wear a hearing aid or to implant the cochlea. Moreover, students also learn the health knowledge related to auditory, such as the drawbacks and safety level of machinery noise towards the factory workers.

 

Study Subjects

  • Acoustics
  • Anatomy & Physiology for Audiology
  • Basic Acoustics and Electronics
  • Basic Human Anatomy and Physiology
  • Electrophysiology
  • Introduction to Linguistics
  • Pathologies of the Auditory System
  • Perception of Sounds & Speech
  • Psychology related to speech and Hearing
  • Speech Pathology

 

Career Opportunities

Graduates can choose to work as an audiologist in the government or private hospitals, hearing aid store and a hearing and speech therapy clinic. Apart from that, graduates can become a noise safety consultant in factories or set up their private clinic.
