For Every Kind of Brilliant

Carnegie Mellon isn’t the kind of university with one type of student or one path to follow. It’s a place where our differences define us, excite us and unite us. A place with boundless options for your studies, and limitless possibilities for your potential.

When you apply to Carnegie Mellon, you’ll apply to a specific college, school or program. Choose your academic path and make it your own.
