Troy Cantalupo, a Live Sound Technology student at the New England School of Communications at Husson University, spent the summer of 2015 working with an unique aspect of sound. Cantalupo has been working as in intern with Noise Control Engineering of Billerica, MA. Noise Control Engineering is an acoustical engineering consulting firm that specializes in noise and vibration control for the naval industry. Their work involves both commercial and government contracts.
As a technician working for Noise Control Engineering, Cantalupo spent his summer managing the lab (including in-house calibration of accelerometers, sending out instrumentation for third-party calibration, and repairing and building equipment). However, he didn’t just work in the lab. I addition to managing the laboratory, Cantalupo;
•Did on-site acoustical surveys, most notably being in Jacksonville, FL on a sea vessel trial.
•Programmed VBA in Microsoft Excel including automating post-calibration data crunching and designing an equipping scanning and tracking system.
•Performed electrical and acoustical testing on the company’s in-house designed sound level meter system and software against industry standards to determine its accuracy rating.
•Performed research testing on damping rating of ship bulkheads.
“I would like to stress the fact that the skills I learned at NESCom,” says Cantalupo. “Technical, professional and social skills all directly played roles in my success in this company. Thank you to the entire staff for the guidance over the years”.
