    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
