Prospective Students

Our students cultivate their musicianship while learning engineering, computing, psychology, and design skills. This helps them envision new ways of creating, performing, and analyzing music. Undergraduate, graduate, and Ph.D. music technology students work directly with our professors to develop new technologies that redefine how we create, consume, and define music.

Graduate Opportunities

Our graduate students learn the advanced technology that creates and delivers new music while researching in one of the Center for Music Technology labs.

These topics include robotics, informatics, biomedical applications, signal processing, machine learning, and cognition. Because Georgia Tech is one of the foremost technological research institutions, we are able to offer our students the opportunity to take courses and collaborate on research projects in a variety of science and engineering disciplines.
