We're musicians. We're artists. We're inventors. We're engineers.
Music technology is the discipline that enables new ways for us to create, consume, and share access to music. At Georgia Tech, music technology students master existing technologies and create the technologies we’ll use to enjoy music in the future.
Music technology students are just as passionate about making music as they are about the technology that makes it possible. They play the clarinet in band and develop mobile applications that teach others to play it too. They perform classical music in the symphony orchestra and make electronic music in a laptop orchestra. They record with their rock band in our studio and also design new acoustical treatments to make the studio sound better. They play the classical organ, and then go home to build one of their own in their garage.
If that sounds like you, we’d love to meet you! Schedule a meeting today with Chris Moore, the academic advisor for the Bachelor of Science in Music Technology program.

Our curriculum is laid out in a way that will introduce technical and artistic topics from day one. Our program stands out because we believe that music and technical skills are equally important.
