-===== Musical Science and Technology (MST) Minor in Music Technology ===== 
- 
- 
-The Musical Science and Technology Minor program focuses on interdisciplinary topics in science and technology applied to music. The goal of the program is to help prepare students for commercial jobs in the audio technology sector and/or for subsequent graduate research study. The MST Minor is designed to serve students who already have a good background in the sciences and prior experience with math and computer science courses. 
- 
-Enrollment in the MST Minor in Music Technology program is limited to students with existing scientific and/or programming backgrounds. Selection is based on previous experience in math, computer programming,​ music, related sciences, expressed interest in the program, and Cumulative Grade Point Average.

-===== Musical Applications of Technology (MAT) Minor in Music Technology ===== 
- 
-The goal of the Musical Applications of Technology (MAT) is to provide instruction in practical and creative applications of technology for music purposes. This program will help prepare students for production-oriented opportunities in the creative arts. While this program can also help prepare students for the MA program in Sound Recording, interested students should visit the Sound Recording [[http://​sites.music.mcgill.ca/​sr/​admission/​|admissions website]] to fully understand the requirements for that program. 
- 
-The MAT program is open to students from any discipline and has no prerequisites other than familiarity with computers. Students will be selected on the basis of their previous background or experience in music technology and/or sound recording, their computer programming skills, their expressed interest in the program, and their Cumulative Grade Point Average.
