The music industry relies heavily on electronic technology in the production (e.g., electronic musical instruments and performance/recording technology), storage (e.g., mp3 and other file storage formats), and distribution (e.g., streaming services) of music. The program combines the content of two majors to allow students to learn the breadth and depth of the convergence between electrical engineering and music technology.
