Carnegie Mellon University is a private research university with a distinctive mix of world-renowned programs in engineering, computer science, robotics, business, public policy, fine arts and the humanities. In 2002, Carnegie Mellon established its Silicon Valley campus at Moffett Field in Mountain View, California to expand the reach of its outstanding professional programs and to perform innovative research that connects it to local, national, and global high-tech companies.
Long known for its leadership in engineering and computer science research and education, Carnegie Mellon and the College of Engineering have established a natural extension in the Silicon Valley, one that integrates the rich heritage and resources of the Pittsburgh campus with the opportunities available in the highly innovative and entrepreneurial Silicon Valley.
