The Department of Engineering and Public Policy

The Department of Engineering and Public Policy (EPP) is a unique department in the College of Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, which addresses important problems in combining both technology and policy. 

We offer multiple double-major options for undergraduate students partnered with each of the five Engineering Departments and Computer Science, a Master's degree in Engineering & Technology Innovation and Management (E&TIM), and a research-oriented Ph.D. program.

In addition to these focal areas, we also study issues in engineered systems, domestic security, technology, organizations and economic development. We have made our research findings into useful Computer-Based Tools for Quantitative Policy Analysis.
