About the Specialization
At the MFA level, students concentrate on developing and refining advanced creative engineering skills while working toward a Music Technology MFA Thesis Project, required for completing the degree. The coursework covers topics in creative technology, programming for electronic music and other digital media, sound art, interface design, audio signal processing, interactive systems, software development and music technology pedagogy, as well as numerous elective subjects, such as robotics, machine learning and mobile music computing.
MFA students also take part in digital performance ensembles, either in standing groups such as the Machine Orchestra, Sonic Boom, Creative Electronic Ensemble, and Improvisation Ensemble, or groups formed specifically in connection with classes.
