Our Graduate Programs

Pittsburgh–Silicon Valley MSIT Programs (MSIT-MOB, MSIT-IS, MSIT-SM): As unique bicoastal programs offering three tracks, the MSIT programs blend technology, management and industry experience to prepare students to become intelligent decision-makers in the field of information technology.

The global MSIT program offered is the Kobe MSIT-IS, a dual-degree program offered in partnership with the University of Hyogo in Kobe, Japan.

Pittsburgh MSIN: The MSIN gives computer science and electrical engineering students a solid foundation in information networking and computer systems while also introducing management, strategic thinking and policy, with the opportunity to study each of these areas in greater depth through coursework and research/development projects.

Pittsburgh MSIS: The MSIS program is ideally suited for computer science and electrical engineering students who want to assume leadership positions in the information security arena. In 16 months, the program enhances a technical education in computer systems and security with research/development opportunities and the option to take additional courses in areas complementary to security.

The MSIS program meets the criteria for the CyberCorps® Scholarship for Service (SFS) program.

Carnegie Mellon undergraduate students in SCS or ECE may apply to earn an MSIN or MSIS in one year. Read on.
