Multidisciplinary Graduate Programs
Energy Science, Technology and Policy (ESTP)
Energy Science, Technology and Policy (ESTP) is an interdisciplinary professional master's for students who seek a distinctive engineering degree that is aligned with new discoveries in energy science and technology, attuned to sustainability and the environment, and informed by economics and policy. Full-time students with an undergraduate degree in engineering or the sciences can complete the ESTP M.S. degree in one academic year. Contact David Landis for more information.
Engineering & Technology Innovation Management (E&TIM)
Engineering & Technology Innovation Management (E&TIM) is an interdisciplinary MS program that provides candidates with science and engineering backgrounds with an understanding of the fundamentals of innovation and value creation, while also strengthening technical insights. It is appropriate for those who aspire to lead technology development and engineering, create new technology-enabled ventures, develop business technology strategies, or design policies to encourage technological innovation. E&TIM applicants can choose to pursue a dual degree with several of the university's engineering departments.
The program is coordinated by Engineering & Public Policy in collaboration with the Heinz College, the Department of Social & Decision Sciences (in the College of Humanities & Social Sciences) and the Tepper School of Business. E&TIM's unique, cross-cutting approach allows students to develop capabilities for leading innovation while growing and leveraging their own areas of technical expertise.
Information Networking Institute (INI)
The Information Networking Institute INI offers professional graduate degree programs in Information Networking, Information Security, Mobility and Software Management that represent an exceptional fusion of technologies, economics and policies of secure communication networks.
Colloids, Polymers and Surfaces (CPS)
When manufacturing chemical products, the application of colloid, polymer, or surface science is often vital, yet these subjects receive minimal coverage in most engineering and science curricula. The Colloids, Polymers and Surfaces (CPS) program focuses on these topics, which are relevant to many industries including coatings and paints, nanotechnology, pharmaceuticals, synthetic and biopolymer manufacture, cosmetics and personal care, environmental remediation, catalysis, and surfactants. This MS degree is offered jointly by the Carnegie Institute of Technology and the Mellon College of Science.
Architecture - Engineering - Construction Management (AEC)
A joint master’s degree between Civil & Environmental Engineering and the School of Architecture, the Architecture - Engineering - Construction Management (AEC) program is designed to prepare building delivery professionals for leadership roles with an impact on economic, environmental, and ethical concerns.
Master of Product Development program is jointly offered by the Department of Mechanical Engineering and the School of Design, with support from the Tepper School of Business. This professional degree meets the emerging needs of industry to develop engineers and industrial designers into more accomplished practitioners and managers in the product development process.
MBA and Engineering Integrated 5-year Program
This dual-degree program, offered by the College of Engineering and Tepper School of Business, allows students the chance to combine an engineering degree with an MBA. Engineering students incorporate business classes into their schedule, as part of CIT's general education requirements. By adding a fifth year to the normal college schedule, qualified students will graduate with a dual degree. For more information, please visit the MBA-Engineering Integrated 5-Year Program web site.
