Technological Change

Welcome to Carnegie Mellon University's interdisciplinary programs of study focused on technological change. Across the campus, students can engage in a variety of rigorous academic programs from undergraduate to PhD studies focused on the changes caused by technology in the world. 

These programs offer intellectual tools to prepare Carnegie Mellon students to understand the fundamental importance of technological change.  These studies prepare Carnegie Mellon students to become intellectual leaders, scientists and engineers, knowledge workers and managers of business enterprises.


These program to study technological change as a major force in the world reflect many years of work within the Carnegie Mellon community of SET Change scholars.  Faculty members involved in this project contribute research and teaching to these studies from the College of Engineering,  the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, the Heinz School of Public Policy and Management and the Tepper School of Business.

The program attracts faculty and students from across the campus.  It also attracts students and scholars to the TCE Dual PhD Program from a number of other schools in the US and around the world

The site also provides an overview of the diverse and rich fields of research that Carnegie Mellon faculty are cultivating in collaboration with scholars around the world to gain a deeper understanding of the powerful changes caused by technology.
