Carnegie Mellon University


Carnegie Mellon stands among an elite group of top-tier international universities that have shaped the world through education, research and outreach. Yet Carnegie Mellon is different from other universities in some striking ways. From the outset, we have endeavored to make an impact, in a very relevant way, on the everyday lives of people. We expand our impact by focusing on areas where we have a comparative advantage, by working across disciplines and by responding with a sense of urgency to the needs of our time. We put a strong emphasis on making things, from paintings and poems to software and robots, and from fluorescent neurons and biosensors to virtual worlds. We are among the first universities in the United States to understand that ideas don’t have borders and today we have partnerships across the globe, degree programs in 10 countries and a campus in Doha, Qatar and Silicon Valley, California. But, wherever you find Carnegie Mellon faculty, students and alumni, you will discover the same powerful combinations of intellectual strength, creative spark, tireless work ethic, reasoned risk-taking and commitment to problem solving. When he founded the university in 1900, Andrew Carnegie believed in the power of education to improve lives and communities. Today, that investment has been multiplied many times over.
