Carnegie Mellon University Australia

Carnegie Mellon University challenges the curious and passionate to imagine and deliver work that matters. A private, global research university, Carnegie Mellon stands among the world's most renowned educational institutions, and sets its own course. 



A self-educated "working boy" who loved books, Andrew Carnegie emigrated from Scotland in 1848 and settled in Pittsburgh, Pa. Attending night school and borrowing books, Carnegie went from factory worker in a textile mill to successful entrepreneur and industrialist. He rose to prominence by founding what became the world's largest steel producing company by the end of the 19th century.


Breakthroughs happen at the intersection of fields — a Carnegie Mellon University specialty. Renowned faculty explore side by side with students, collaborating on research, tackling society's biggest challenges and delivering work that matters.

The unique culture at Carnegie Mellon University allows students and faculty members to work with scholars outside of their schools and colleges. The following degrees and programs are designed especially for students who want to work beyond just one discipline:

My university life was surely a learning experience. The confidence and motivation it gave me, I couldn't get anywhere else. Most importantly, it is the place where I recognized my uniqueness and individuality. My school life is no less than a treasure for me which gave me invaluable joys in life.
