[ot] new MS in Music Technology at Georgia Tech

Hi Max/MSP (and even Jitter) folks — hope this new MS program at
Georgia Tech will be of interest to many of you. (Many of the faculty
and MS students use Max/MSP in their teaching and research.)

Best,
Jason Freeman
Assistant Professor
Music Department
Georgia Tech

The Music Department at Georgia Tech is pleased to announce a new
Master of Science degree in Music Technology. This two-year, full-
time interdisciplinary degree program is conducted in close
collaboration with other leading programs at Georgia Tech, including
Human Computer Interaction, Electrical Engineering, Industrial
Design, Interactive Digital Technology, and Mechanical Engineering.
Its objective is to provide students with the practical skills and
theoretical understanding needed to be leaders in the design,
development, and creative implementation of music technology products
and services in the coming decades. The program currently offers a
concentration in Computer Music Research and Engineering, focusing on
the design and development of novel enabling music technologies.

Applicants should have an undergraduate degree in Music, Computing,
Engineering, or a related discipline, and they should demonstrate
their musical background in performance, composition and/or theory,
as well as basic skills in programming and/or engineering in order to
be admitted to the program. Candidates may be asked to interview with
faculty in person or by telephone; the interview, which will include
a portfolio examination, will be used to further assess their
qualifications. A limited number of scholarships and tuition waivers
may be offered to qualified students.

Applications for Fall semester 2007 are due March 1, 2007. For more
