Students in the bicoastal mobility and information security programs divide their studies between Carnegie Mellon's Pittsburgh and Silicon Valley campuses.
Combining the rich, academic setting of main campus with hands-on industry experience in the heart of Silicon valley, bicoastal students have the best of both worlds.
Students spend the first two semesters of the program in Pittsburgh, and complete their studies in Silicon Valley. By participating in hackathons, working alongside industry in the practicum project and networking with leaders in the field, bicoastal students gain unparalleled exposure in the nation's top tech hub.

Bridging the gap between theory and practice, the practicum is a project-based capstone course for bicoastal students. Teams tackle problems, pilot new ideas and develop solutions for sponsors in computing, mobile systems and security.
