Gabriella Nekesa  asked the Naked Scientists:
     
Hi, i like your site very much.I would like to ask which type of engineering to study if i want to work in a head phone manufacturing company.

Thanks and kind regards, Gabriella.

What do you think?

The obvious is electrical/electronic, which most of the best engineers are, of course  :) probably specialising in acoustics in final year.
They will also need production engineers, some mechanical, and also material scientists if they are doing their own research.
Beware, many companies badge engineer products made in ,say China. You might want to research which companies do their own research and manufacturing.
Most of the top headphone manufacturers are also in the microphone business.
Wishing you all the best in your future career

If I were you I wouldn't study engineering. I'd study physics. Whoops! I did. Lol!! See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acoustics#Education

There are many types of acoustician, but they usually have a Bachelor's degree or higher qualification. Some possess a degree in acoustics, while others enter the discipline via studies in fields such as physics or engineering. Much work in acoustics requires a good grounding in Mathematics and science. Many acoustic scientists work in research and development. Some conduct basic research to advance our knowledge of the perception (e.g. hearing, psychoacoustics or neurophysiology) of speech, music and noise. Other acoustic scientists advance understanding of how sound is affected as it moves through environments, e.g. Underwater acoustics, Architectural acoustics or Structural acoustics. Others areas of work are listed under subdisciplines below. Acoustic scientists work in government, university and private industry laboratories. Many go on to work in Acoustical Engineering. Some positions, such as Faculty (academic staff) require a Doctor of Philosophy.
