Composition and Music Technology students are offered streams in classical, electronic, film, popular and jazz music, as well as sound art installation. The program provides learning through practical experience, performance and collaboration, with students collaborating on projects in the dance, film, video, electronic arts, gaming and theatre departments. Students study recording, mixing, mastering and online networking, as well as comprehensive composition approaches for the 21st century.

The Composer in Residence program offers access to a range of visiting artists and students are provided with opportunities to engage with industry throughout the course. In addition, all students are involved in the performance of electroacoustic music through the ECUatorial and Aletheia student ensembles, and are encouraged to work with music performance majors for the performance of their works.
