Master of Science in Information Technology - Information Security and Master of Science in Mobile and IoT Engineering

Makers and thinkers, hackers and scholars, researchers and programmers – find your spark of genius at the INI.

The Information Networking Institute offers two degrees through bicoastal delivery in collaboration with the Silicon Valley campus: the Master of Science in Mobile and IoT Engineering (MSMITE) and the Master of Science in Information Technology - Information Security (MSIT-IS). Students in the INI's bicoastal mobility and information security programs divide their studies between Carnegie Mellon's Pittsburgh and Silicon Valley campuses. Combining the rich, academic setting of the main campus with hands-on industry experience in the heart of Silicon Valley, bicoastal students have the best of both worlds.

Bicoastal students gain hands-on, industry exposure through the practicum. Working alongside project sponsors, bicoastal information security and mobility student teams at CMU-SV tackle problems, pilot new ideas and develop solutions in a semester-long project. Projects span a variety of topics in computing, mobile systems and security, and range from fundamental research to software development. 

 

INI Celebrates 25 Years of World-Class Education in Networking, Security, and Mobility.
