Carnegie Mellon University has been making history for more than 100 years. The university has grown over the years from a small, local trade school known as Carnegie Tech into the world-class research institution we know today. Consistently ranked among the top universities in the nation, Carnegie Mellon is home to the first university computer network, the first 'thinking machine,' and subsequently, the first computer programming course for freshmen in the nation. Now, the university brings this depth of history to the San Francisco Bay Area, the heart of technological innovation.
