The Indiana University Music program at Indiana University-Purdue University in Indianapolis has moved into a new phase.
Under a reorganization agreement, the program is now the Department of Music and Arts Technology in the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology at IUPUI.
At IUPUI, reports the IUPUI News Bureau, the music program has focused on music technology since 1993 when it offered the nation's first Master of Science degree in Music Technology. All faculty members hired since 1993 have backgrounds in music technology, computer music, Internet-based music instruction, electronic music, multimedia programming, web design and/or Internet performance techniques.
The IUPUI Department of Music and Arts Technology is the only program in the nation to focus on technology as a tool for music performance, music composition, music instruction, and music listening and arts technology.
