Abstract

Music has always united people through concerts, operas, and camp fires. For two universities, music brings together undergraduate students despite 615 miles of separation. Engineering students at Virginia Tech and the University of Hartford are working together on a music-inspired project that hopes to discover a new method for coating guitars. While this project connects the fields of engineering and the arts, it also yields benefits for students and faculty through collaborative learning efforts.
