Music Technology encourages interaction between musical creation, technology and research. The pedagogical goal of the Music Technology program is to provide students with an environment for professional-level music training with an intensive focus on programming of advanced music technologies. Training includes courses in Computer Music, New Media, Digital Signal Processing, Computer Science, Human-Computer Interaction, Psychoacoustics, and Acoustics. Research goals of the program include the study and development of new and flexible strategies for sound analysis, processing, synthesis and control, melodic pattern recognition, auditory display, symbolic manipulation of formal music representations, and music perception and cognition. This training prepares students to meet the technological demands of contemporary composition and performance practice, and offers students a wide range of employment possibilities in the music technology and media industries.
