    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.)

    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 information about the program, the Music Technology Group, and to apply, please visit:
