The iii Experience: In Their Own Words
"The MIIPS program gives you the knowledge and tools to be able to design innovative, delightful products, whether that product is an RV or a website. I have been able to apply the methods that I learned in the program directly to problems that I have encountered at my job designing cutting-edge interactive web environments."
- Julia Costa, MIIPS '11
UX Designer at Pandora Jewelry
"Having the experience of building a product from the ground up really exposed me to a world of customer-facing product development and marketing that I was passionate about pursuing. Being surrounded by passionate and smart people in the software field, I began to realize that the network I was building was one of the most valuable assets in my career. The networks and bonds you form at CMU are a life-long benefit."
- Amy Krishnamohan, MSSM '14
VP of Product Marketing at Aiven
"What drew me to Carnegie Mellon’s MIIPS program, in addition to its reputation as a school and program, was my interest in thinking holistically about the design process in physical products and not just the software technology solutions I have been working on for the past fifteen years. The opportunity to pursue this program remotely has opened the door for me to further expand my knowledge and expertise as a technology executive leading Product and UX design teams."
