Software Engineering Distance Education

However motivated the aspiring software engineer may be, he or she faces challenges such as:
• Maintaining work-life balance
• Fulfilling professional commitments
• Travel and relocation concerns

By leveraging technology, distance education resolves these issues by enabling students to complete their master’s degree part-time and remotely, following the identical curriculum as the on-campus students, and guided by CMU faculty.  

At Carnegie Mellon, we’ve been delivering world-class software engineering programs at a distance for nearly 20 years. Throughout this time, we’ve continuously refined our approach to ensure that the learning experience is of the highest caliber, is enriching as well as rewarding, and as cost- and effort-effective as possible.

Distance education brings smoothly integrated, specially-designed course materials, dedicated websites, chat rooms and teleconferences bring the classes and projects right to your laptop — anytime, anywhere. Because distance education allows students to continue working while they pursue their degree, many find that they can directly apply new knowledge on-the-job long before they finish the program.

Accelerate your career without interrupting it. Gain a competitive edge, enhance your marketability and skills set, and set your course for professional advancement.



Important Note Regarding Distance Education

Residents of Certain States are Ineligible to Apply for Enrollment in Courses and Programs Delivered via Distance Education: 

For Carnegie Mellon courses and programs delivered via distance education only: Carnegie Mellon is not able to accept students who are residents of Alabama, Arkansas and Minnesota for enrollment in  courses and programs delivered via distance education because it has not applied for or received authorization from these states to deliver courses and programs via distance education to residents of these states. Carnegie Mellon has not currently applied for or received authorization from these states because Carnegie Mellon has determined that the administrative and other requirements to obtain and maintain authorization for its distance education courses and programs that would otherwise be delivered to residents of these states, including the fees charged by these states and the additional administrative costs associated with doing so, are disproportionately burdensome, excessive and/or prohibitive, at least at the present time.

ATTN Residents of AL, AR and MN: If you are a resident of Alabama, Arkansas or Minnesota, you are not eligible to apply for enrollment in Carnegie Mellon courses and programs delivered via distance education. Note, however that residents of Alabama, Arkansas and Minnesota are eligible to apply for enrollment in all other Carnegie Mellon courses and programs, including those offered at any of its various campus locations.
