Engineering and Public Policy

Technology can help us build a happier, freer, and more fulfilling life, while keeping risks and undesirable impacts at acceptable levels. However, this process isn't automatic; it takes careful hard work by people who understand both technology and society.

The Department of Engineering and Public Policy (EPP) at Carnegie Mellon University is a unique department that works to solve problems at the interface of technology and society. We offer multiple double-major options for undergraduate students (in partnership with each of the five Engineering departments and the School of Computer Science) a Master's degree in Engineering & Technology Innovation and Management, and a research-oriented Ph.D. program
