As champions of one of the oldest traditions of the Institute, the School of Music provides a creative cultural outlet for Georgia Tech's many musically minded students. The School has evolved to include premier academic programs in Music Technology. The School of Music offers a Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, and Ph.D. in Music Technology, where students can combine musical expertise with the scientific, engineering, and technical training that Georgia Tech is known for. In these academic programs, students gain proficiency in music theory, performance, composition, and/or analysis; music information retrieval; digital signal processing and synthesis; interactive music systems design; and music cognition.

Students across campus can participate in the School of Music’s vocal and instrumental ensembles, including the Marching Band or Orchestra. Also, students can also pursue a minor within the School of Music. Students earn free elective credit for all ensembles and classroom courses and/or Humanities credit for ensemble courses carrying the Humanities attribute.

Research in the School of Music is focused in the Center for Music Technology. This research center pairs faculty and students to conduct creative and technological research in a range of areas, including acoustics, music informatics, sonification, and robotic musicianship.

A Certificate in Fine Arts-Music can be earned by Georgia Tech students upon completion of thirteen hours of coursework in music as approved by the Chair of the School of Music. Students following certificate guidelines will be exposed to an introduction to fine arts, including the development of personal aesthetic and critical skills, and will go on to more in-depth study in music analysis and history. A core component of this program involves sustained performance in one of Georgia Tech's instrumental or vocal ensembles.

At least nine hours must be at the 3000 level or higher. All other Undergraduate Certificate Academic Requirements, as they appear in the Undergraduate Certificate Program Guidelines, must be met. Courses must be taken on a letter-grade basis, and a C or better must be received in order to obtain course credit toward the Certificate. This Certificate Program is designed mainly for students with an interest in gaining an in-depth knowledge of music within the context of a technical undergraduate education. Required and elective courses are as follows:
