Leading Silicon Valley in Research
Carnegie Mellon University is a celebrated research center, home to the world's leading experts. In Silicon Valley, we are researching the most important issues in technology and making connections to academia, industry, and innovation. In the past decade, the campus has developed a strong and growing set of research programs related to mobile computing, security, the Internet of Things, machine learning, and software as a service.
Faculty and researchers collaborate with corporate partners and sponsors in Silicon Valley to meet critical challenges, while students gain invaluable experience and exposure to innovation at the ground level.
Researchers convene regular sessions to share ideas, discuss findings and connect new developments with current projects.
