Prof. Dr.-Ing. Sabine C. Langer

Sabine C. Langer researches and teaches in the fields of acoustics, modeling and innovation. She accompanies people in order to develop and to enfold their individual and collective potential. Especially as head of a graduate program, this is of great importance to her.

Her son teaches her to be open to the new. She loves the swoothing sound of a forest, the creaking of the snow and the sound of silence. Since 2019 she heads the newly founded Institute for Acoustics.

Areas of Research

  • Modelling & Simulation
  • Computational Acoustics
