Ron Barden graduated with a Bachelor of Engineering and PhD from the University of Adelaide. He joined the department in 1963 just as the Faculty of Engineering was establishing itself. As the foundation chair, Barden oversaw the construction of the first laboratory spaces and initiated the beginnings of what would become a strong and important relationship between the department and industry partners. Barden was Head of the Department until he retired to move into consulting in 1974. He became a founding partner in an acoustic and noise-consulting firm.
