Integrated Innovation Institute
The Integrated Innovation Institute is a joint program of the Carnegie Institute Technology (CIT), the College of Fine Arts (CFA) and the Tepper School of Business. The Institute is built on primary disciplines in product 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.
As a progression of the highly successful and internationally regarded Master of Product Development program, the Institute includes professional master degree programs, executive education, and applied research including industry consortia. With its formation, the Master of Product Development program will change its name to the more appropriate Master of Integrated Innovation for Products and Services. In addition, the Institute manages the Master of Science in Software Management (SM) offered at the CMU-Silicon Valley Campus. The SM degree focuses on the innovation and entrepreneurship of software systems, and management of that process. Starting in fall 2015, the Institute will offer a new Master of Integrated Innovation as part of CMU's Integrated Media Program (CMU-IMP). This program will be housed at Steiner Studios in the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
In Pittsburgh, the Institute will be housed in a newly acquired CMU building at the corner of Forbes and Craig Streets (a former PNC bank retail location). A dynamic refurbished space and building addition will provide the gateway to the CMU campus from the west on Forbes, highlighting Carnegie Mellon’s interdisciplinary innovative culture.
