Musical Applications of Technology


The goal of the Musical Applications of Technology (MAT) Minor is to teach you about practical and creative applications of technology for music purposes. This program will help prepare students for production-oriented opportunities in the creative arts. You can take classes on new media, music and the internet, perception and cognition, audio recording, and more.

The MAT program is open to students from music and other faculties at McGill University and has no prerequisites other than familiarity with computers. Students will be selected on the basis of their previous background or experience in music technology and/or sound recording, their computer programming skills, their expressed interest in the program, and their Cumulative Grade Point Average.


This program will allow you to gain valuable insight into the connections between music and technology. This kind of knowledge is incredibly important and can help you to better understand how the industry works. It can also lead you to careers directly related to musical technology, like audio recording and production.

  • Producer
  • Audio visual specialist
  • Event support specialist
