We Inspire Innovation
Carnegie Mellon Silicon Valley is dedicated to educating its students to become leaders in global technology innovation and management and to performing 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.
Offering graduate programs in software engineering, software management, information technology, innovation and mobility, each program provides the appropriate mix of technical, business and organizational skills critical to our students' success. With research that focuses on a suite of new technologies, Carnegie Mellon Silicon Valley is committed to creating and implementing solutions for real problems.
As the campus nears its tenth year, your gift can make an impact on innovation that drives the campus for the next ten years and beyond.
Ways to impact the Silicon Valley Campus include:
- Silicon Valley Strategic Initiatives Fund
The Carnegie Mellon Silicon Valley Strategic Initiatives Fund enables the leadership of CMUSV to meet existing needs and to invest in new areas of strategic interest to CMUSV's future.

- Conrad Graduate Education Fellowship
The Conrad Graduate Education Fellowship has been established to honor the memory of Carnegie Mellon University Silicon Valley Director Dr. Martin Griss’s nephew, Conrad Griss, whose tragic death during a home invasion in 2010 ended a dream for further education. Conrad was a creative young man who was eager to resume his education. The fellowship will be awarded to an individual of merit who has shown creativity, artistic flair, or innovation in technology.
This fund will provide fellowships to graduate students enrolled in a master’s degree program at Carnegie Mellon University Silicon Valley. The dean of Carnegie Mellon University Silicon Valley or his/her designee will determine the amount of the fellowships and will select awardees in accordance with university policies and processes.
To contribute toward this fellowship, give online and specify "Conrad Graduate Education Fellowship" in the additional comments box on the form.
- Disaster Management Initiative
The Disaster Management Initiative brings together public organizations, non-profits, private consortiums, technologists and citizens to jointly develop better technical solutions for disaster management.
Our research and technical solutions combine the strength of all our partners. We collaborate with experienced local practitioners in the "natural disaster theme park" of California. We are located in the earthquake- and fire-prone San Francisco Bay Area which we use as our primary experimental test-bed. We scale globally through interactions with our international partners.
We welcome corporate, foundation and government interest and support to accomplish our mission in the public good. We have also established an affiliates program to allow us the opportunity to provide our research and collaborations. Learn more about how you can contribute.
Make your gift today and help us inspire innovations that change the world.
