"Our founder, Andrew Carnegie, famously said, 'do your duty and a little more and the future will take care of itself.' In keeping with that same sentiment, be sure to register to vote in this upcoming presidential election—and then vote."

October 11th, 2016 is the last day to register in Pennsylvania before the November 8th election. Be sure to register to vote today: http://cmu.li/PwdT304Ade9

What's your bank sharing? Engineerin and Public Policy and CyLab professor Lorrie Cranor and a team of CMU researchers have a tool that crawls and parses your bank's privacy policies. http://cmu.li/JtrW304sZUv
Carnegie Mellon did a machine analysis of 6,326 bank privacy notices. The results aren't encouraging.

President Obama recently announced that his administration is "rolling out new rules of the road for automated vehicles" so that "passengers can be confident that other vehicles will be just as responsibly deployed and just as safe." In this short video, Phil Koopman, Associate Professor Electrical & Computer Engineering, addresses how we might define who is ultimately responsible while operating an autonomous or partially autonomous vehicle. #selfdriving https://youtu.be/ZI28NWErLOU

When—not if—cars start to communicate with each other on the road, it will be the first new major wireless infrastructure deployed since cellphones. Electrical and computer engineering and engineering and public policy’s Professor Jon Peha discusses wireless vehicle communication in our latest video: https://youtu.be/mYgeEiXHs4M

Hackers stole $70 mil of virtual currency from a bitcoin exchange in August. As featured in Fortune Magazine, CyLab researchers Nicolas Christin and Janos Szurdi are on it, investigating the security risks of these exchanges. http://cmu.li/lees304tcMt
One study suggests a third of all bitcoin exchanges had been hacked.

Congratulations to Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering and the Center for Neural Basis of Cognition Steve Chase, recipient of an NSF CAREER Award to study neural mechanisms of skill learning. An improved understanding of the science behind skill learning will have an impact on the clinical understanding of the progression of motor control disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease and stroke. http://cmu.li/xKV0304zct5

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.
