Abstract - The context of education of sound and music computing is complex, mainly due to its multidisciplinary nature and the consequent difficulty of fitting it into the traditional, discipline-oriented focus of most university level studies. Sound and music computing does not simply embrace technological issues, rather it requires a deep understanding of artistic, social, cultural, economical, and juridical aspects. In this paper, we compare current higher education initiatives worldwide by administering a suitably-defined on-line survey. By analysing the collected data, we investigate how SMC subjects are perceived and, consequently, propose a revision of the guidelines in SMC education previously identified by the scientific community.
