Degree: Other Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

The department isn't too big, so it feels like a community where students and professors can interact comfortably. The program is pretty diverse, and the staff is really friendly. It's a four year program, which is both good and bad.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

This program is very academic, scientific, and mathematical in nature. If you are looking for a fluffy MBA program, this is not the place for you. Come ready to work hard.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2015

The graduate programs are very competitive, and focus on application of real world problems. There is often group work which can be challenging if teammates are not cooperative. Most professors have office hours, but some do not and are difficult to reach by email. The students in my graduate program are coming right from undergraduate school. Overall, the program is pushing me to learn the new applications for creating software.

Degree: Environmental Engineering
Graduation Year: 2013

It is a very good program, and I learnt a lot. I just wish they would integrate better with recruiting companies, so that students do not have to face difficulties looking for jobs

Degree: Environmental Engineering

Carnegie Mellon has its reputation for a reason. The program is a lot of work, but in the long run it is worth it. The faculty are experts in specific areas of research, which is important to look at before applying to any program.
