CMU emphasizes close collaborations between faculty and students to address scientific, technological and societal challenges, as well as making things ‘from art to robots’.
The university lays claim to many examples of ground-breaking inventions and pioneering research into brain science, data, start-ups and driverless cars, among others. It was the first institution (via professor Scott Fahlman in 1982) to create a ‘smile’ in an email.
Its cohort numbers well over 13,000 students from 114 countries, and a faculty of more than 1,400.
With its strong focus on creating new things, CMS says that many of its students go on to join some of the world’s most successful companies. The Association of University Technology Managers has ranked it first among US institutions for start-up companies created per research dollar spent, between 2008 and 2012.
