Integrated Innovation Institute
The Integrated Innovation Institute is a joint initiative of Carnegie Mellon University's College of Engineering, the College of Fine Arts (through direct partnership with the School of Design), and the Tepper School of Business. The Institute is built on primary disciplines in product and service innovation covering functional performance (engineering), human interface (design), and economic value (business). The Institute focuses on education and research in innovation methods and practice. It is unique among top educational institutions in that it unites the three disciplines to cross train students to become elite innovators, which enhances the effectiveness of thinking and generating results.
The Integrated Innovation Institute impacts both industry and society through its professional master's degree programs, applied research and executive education. As a bicoastal Institute, it is located in Pittsburgh, PA and in the heart of Silicon Valley at Carnegie Mellon's campus in Mountain View, CA.
Featured Research: Exploring the Internet of Things (IoT)
The Internet of Things (IoT) imagines a future where billions of internet-enabled ‘smart’ products connect. We are asking not how to make them connect, but rather how to connect them in a meaningful way. To make people’s live better, to bring people together though these devices and to enrich human-to-human interaction through device-to-device connections. Learn more on our IoT Research page.
