    NCPA serves as the Physical Acoustics Archives for the Acoustical Society of America and coordinates the biennial Physical Acoustics Summer School. Although NCPA is not an academic department, we do employ undergraduate and graduate students. This employment allows graduate students to fulfill their research requirements for their degrees and undergraduate students to enhance their learning experience.NCPA maintains basic and applied research programs in many areas of physical acoustics; provides coordination of major, multi-university research programs in the United States; serves as an advocate for physical acoustics to federal agencies and other organizations; provides significant educational opportunities for students and postdocs; and provides direct research assistance to investigators throughout the world.
