Prospective Students

Welcome!  Thank you for your interest in Carnegie Mellon’s professional master’s programs in Software Engineering. At this site, you’ll find information about our programs and degrees, options pertaining to distance education, and how to decide whether advanced study in the field of software engineering is the right path for you.  


But first we’d like to give you a brief introduction to the Carnegie Mellon environment, and try to answer some of the questions that we know will surface as you grapple with making a pivotal career decision.


An obvious first question might be "what type of individual is motivated to earn a master’s degree in Software Engineering from CMU?" Our students are easily recognized by technical ingenuity, professional judgment, individual initiative and the propensity for leadership. They enter the program technically strong, and leave it with a deep understanding of process, development, architecture, methodology, best practices and team dynamics.


We invite you to learn more about our remarkable students and how they are accelerating their software engineering careers and enriching their personal and professional lives.
