Access top talent 

A little over a decade ago, a team of researchers from Carnegie Mellon started a project with NASA at the Ames Research Park near Mountain View, California. They soon realized it was time to bring CMU’s world-class teaching and research to the Silicon Valley, to take advantage of research and other opportunities. While our programs have adapted with the changing needs of the Silicon Valley and definitely grown in size, we still remain at the NASA Ames Research Park, offering MS and PhD degree programs through CMU’s elite graduate College of Engineering, which ranked 4th in graduate engineering by the latest U.S. News & World Report and 12th in the world for engineering and technology by the Times Higher Education. Our students are experienced, knowledgeable, bright, and eager to make an impact in the Silicon Valley and the world.

One of our goals in Career Services is to build a bridge between industry and academia and help your company get connected to these talented students. Our alumni are consistently ranked as leaders in their fields and will go on to do great things, so we want them to start with exceptional organizations and provide them with opportunities to obtain high-quality internships and full-time positions. Let’s work together to make this happen! To learn more about how we can help you do this, please review the rest of this section or contact Lauren Schachar.
