Bachelor of Science in Music and TechnologyThis program consists of a set of courses that span music, electrical engineering, and computer science, as well as a capstone composition/design/performance project. The goal of the core coursework in music and technology is to provide a comprehensive undergraduate understanding of all three areas of study: music, computer science and electrical engineering. In other words, regardless of the entry point – an interest in computer science, electrical engineering, or music – the coursework prescribed will allow each student to gain the requisite knowledge and experience in all three areas. Students will work closely with advisors and will be guided in both course selection and capstone projects.
The program is offered to a small number of undergraduates who are admitted for undergraduate study independently by the School of Music and either the School of Computer Science or the Carnegie Institute of Technology.

Internal Transfers for Carnegie Mellon StudentsCurrent Carnegie Mellon undergraduates may apply for internal transfer into this degree program. Internal transfer applications should be submitted to:
Deadlines for internal transfer are: October 1 (for the following spring semester) or March 1 (for the following fall semester).
Remember to note on the curriculum (and on the application for internal transfer) that a Music or Technical Concentration must be selected. Students who choose the Music Concentration but are not current music majors must pass an audition as part of the admission process. Internal transfer admission decisions (which will be effective as of the following semester) will be made later in October or March after midterm grades are published.
