Earn a Carnegie Mellon master's degree in the following areas:
In 16 or 20 months, the INI graduate programs equip individuals with a background and interest in technology with the management and strategic thinking skills necessary to assume entrepreneurial and leadership positions in the areas of information networking, information security, mobility and software management.
Pittsburgh–Silicon Valley MSIT Programs (MSIT-MOB, MSIT-IS, MSIT-SM): These bicoastal professional graduate degree programs provide students with an advanced, specialized curriculum combining computer science, electrical and computer engineering, software engineering, and information systems and exposes them to topics in business, management, and policy. The unique combination of rigorous technical topics, practical industry-oriented topics, and real-world project experience empowers students to be the movers and shakers of the tech industry, whether launching a tech start-up, joining an enterprise R&D team, or fighting cyber-crime.
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. 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.
Emerging Media Masters with specialization in Mobility (MS EM-Mobility): The INI collaborates with IDeATe to offer a path with a technical focus on mobile applications, services and devices.
Carnegie Mellon undergraduate students in SCS or ECE may apply to earn an MSIN or MSIS in one year. Read on.
