Engineers are ultimately problem-solvers. They’re people who are able to identify a need and investigate its causes to develop a solution. These solutions manifest in society as new products, like an artificial heart, biometrics software, or a car that drives itself.
Then there are new policies that improve standards and methods or shape industry and government. There are engineers who build better cities, promote green power, create stronger bridges, build hurricane-safe buildings, and even design the next wild roller coasters.
It’s up to you and other students like you to decide where the world will go next. Engineering at Carnegie Mellon enables you to be a productive and fulfilled professional throughout your career, wherever it takes you.
