Artificial Intelligence Engineering - Information Security (MSAIE-IS)

As part of a college-wide initiative focusing on artificial intelligence, the INI will soft-launch a new Master of Science in Artificial Intelligence Engineering - Information Security (MSAIE-IS) program in Fall 2022.

MSAIE-IS students will gain a deep understanding of AI methods, systems, tool chains and cross-cutting issues, including security, privacy and other ethical, societal and policy challenges. Students will apply AI to the design and implementation of information security systems, including networks, software and services. 

Applications are being accepted for Fall 2023.

Artificial Intelligence Leader

The MSAIE-IS degree is a first-of-its-kind program bringing information security issues to the fore as technologies embrace the artificial intelligence revolution. Of course, it's launching at Carnegie Mellon University, where our work in cybersecurity is uncontested and our faculty have led the world in artificial intelligence education and innovation since the field was created.
