Carnegie Mellon University has seven colleges: College of Engineering; Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences; Mellon College of Science; College of Fine Arts; Tepper School of Business; School of Computer Science; Heinz College of Information Systems and Public Policy.
All seven colleges enroll graduate students; the first six (all except Heinz College of Information Systems and Public Policy) also enroll undergraduates.
As a richly international institution, global equitable and sustainable development are at the heart of our academic mission. Over time we have built world-leading strengths at the intersection of technology and humanity. We know from experience that tomorrow’s leaders will emerge from our student population and we are committed to providing an academic environment that establishes sustainability as an underlying principle for action. As a result, across our colleges, students are challenged to address the social, economic and environmental issues reflected in the UN Goals for Sustainable Development and to be active participants in shaping a better future.<< show less
