MIT has made an undergrad course in computer music available at no charge: here.

"This course examines the history, techniques, and aesthetics of mechanical and computer-aided approaches to algorithmic music composition and generative music systems. Through creative hands-on projects, readings, listening assignments, and lectures, students will explore a variety of historical and contemporary approaches. Diverse tools and systems will be employed, including applications in Python, MIDI, Csound, SuperCollider, and Pure Data.


In fact, it's just one of many music courses offered, as seen here, including several of an electronic/computer nature.

 Thanks for pointing this out Winslow. Now if time and (far from stellar) grey matter performance permit, that is one more thing on my ever-expanding to-do list.
