Think about how a trout swims. Would it surprise you to know that E. coli bacteria swim using a totally different locomotion mechanism? Maybe not—but learning how creatures of sizes between fish and E. coli swim could lead us to develop new, bio-inspired propulsion strategies, according to Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering Aditya Khair. https://youtu.be/DHxlhZN4PgM

In the U.S., pollution from power plants is responsible for 10,000 – 50,000 premature deaths every year. Integrating renewable energy sources into the electric power system is imperative—but the Carnegie Mellon Electricity Industry Center, the largest interdisciplinary center in the world, is on the job. Check out our newest video featuring Professor Jay Apt and his work with this center. https://youtu.be/4trqagtDhBo

The Dean’s Office of Carnegie Mellon College of Engineering is looking for a select group of students to help the marketing and communications team report on events and activities from the student perspective.

Students will attend events and activities on and off campus, sometimes with special access. They will not only be a part of the story, but will also capture and promote content via social media.

A top-five engineering college with an innovative, multidisciplinary, global focus.
Introduction
Welcome to the College of Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University!

Today's College of Engineering is a hundred years in the making. From a trade school for the children of steelworkers to a top 10 engineering college, the college has consistently looked to the future as the measure for its mission.

As a student-centered, research-intensive college, it is our goal to offer an education that encourages innovative thinking, develops technical excellence and builds collaboration, communication, and leadership skills.

Today's engineers must be citizens of the world. From Pittsburgh to Portugal, Senegal to Shanghai, engineers are challenged to solve problems on a global scale. At the College of Engineering we are committed to building multi-cultural skills and communication, challenging our students and faculty to grow beyond borders and boundaries. This is demonstrated by our curriculum and in the staff, faculty, and students we attract.

With a global economy comes opportunity and competition. We help our students meet that challenge through a curriculum and culture that embraces innovation. Our graduate programs incorporate master's and doctorate degrees focused on innovation management and entrepreneurship. Our faculty is well known for and committed to both outstanding teaching and innovations in curricula and pedagogy.

Our pioneering, flexible undergraduate curriculum allows every student to customize the program to achieve his or her goals. This includes an initiative to support first-year students during that critical transition from high school to college. Our students represent the best and brightest minds—we are committed to securing their future.

In addition, research within the college transcends disciplinary, departmental, and college boundaries and offers a unique opportunity for students to be trained while developing the next generation of innovations that will have an impact and change society, for both graduate and undergraduate students.

Carnegie Mellon's College of Engineering is a place for people who desire to solve problems, to discover, to create, to design, to invent, and to innovate—and all of this with the goal of having an impact on society. Our alumni have distinguished themselves in many ways, and we expect that future generations will do the same.
