Many engineers are musicians. But not many people wouldn't think to put an engineer and a musician in the same room to bounce ideas off each other. To have an engineer and musician team up to create their work is a great opportunity for creativity. In the article "Engineers and Musicians Share a Common Interest" a professor teaches a class called “Signals, Systems, and Music” with both musicians and engineers enrolled. This course was designed so that all of the majors involved can communicate their language in a very different way from the norm. For their projects, the students have to compose music using circuit boards and various circuit components. This weaves together the disciplines of music and engineering while creating a wonderful masterpiece.

 

We all know that engineers can be great musicians. But what we fail to realize is that musicians can be great engineers as well.
