Engineering Is it possible to mix electrical engineering with music somehow

  1. Dec 27, 2011 #1
    I am a physics and electrical engineering major and wish to know if there are any specific music career opportunities that utilize the concepts I've learned from both. I really have a passion for music production and any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Perhaps the development and design of digital musical instruments, though I imagine those are few to be had.

    it's not a specific career opportunity, but it might give you some insight to the overlap you are looking for . . .

    audio engineering I think is a sub discipline of electrical, so specializing in acoustics

    Thanks for the responses. I could see somewhat of the usefulness in the development and design of digital musical instruments and perhaps even in designing recording studios. I actually have a friend in Dartmouth's music program and I've heard some good things about it and looking at this graduate program looks really promising. I'll give them a call to inquire more about it. As for audio/sound engineering being a sub-discipline of electrical engineering, can anyone else confirm this?

    My alma mater just built a kick-a$$ new facility:


    I know EEs and CSE's who are working there are drooling over the toys, like, constantly.
