Engineers are problem-solvers who identify the need for a solution and determine its causes. Their solutions can take the form of new products, such as artificial hearts, biometric software, or self-driving cars. They can also come in the form of new policies that shape industry and government or improve standards and methods. Engineers can build better cities, promote green power, create stronger bridges, design hurricane-safe buildings, and even develop exciting new roller coasters.

As a student, you have the power to shape the world through engineering. Studying engineering at Carnegie Mellon can prepare you to be a productive and fulfilled professional throughout your career, no matter where it takes you.
