Acoustical Engineering & Music


The Bachelor of Science in Engineering-Acoustical Engineering and Music (BSE) program is a unique combination of music and engineering classes designed to train students in the art of sound for careers such as architectural acoustics, designing performance and recording spaces, musical instrument design, noise control and sound quality.

To be accepted into this program, applicants must have the math and science background required of all engineering students and must successfully pass the entrance requirements of the Hartt School, including the audition (classical or jazz instrument or voice).  Students apply for admission to the College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture using the University's application process as well as completing The Hartt School Supplemental Application.
