Curriculum Plans & Registration
How Registration Works
With the exception of the first semester in Silicon Valley, MSTV students are expected to register for MSTV courses through their SIO account. Registration for each term takes place during a specified period of time (as noted on the CMU Academic Calendar). Students should make sure to take note of registration dates & deadlines.
Students are encouraged to read through the SIO registration guide below for details on how to navigate the registration process. Additional registration-related information may be sent out from your iii Academic Advisor via email. Students should also make sure to consult with their Home Engineering department advisor for questions related to their dual-engineering program.
Students can request a course overload after completing their first semester with a 3.6 GPA or higher.
Start-Up Creation in PracticeSimilar to an independent study, the Start-Up Creation in Practice course focus specifically on new venture creation. Students will work on developing their technology-focused idea into a potentially viable company during the semester.
