The objectives of the Electrical and Computer Engineering program at Carnegie Mellon University represent our vision for what our students will be doing in their engineering careers five years after they have graduated. The principal behaviors we seek to foster in our students are expertise, innovation and leadership.


For over sixty years, the Carnegie Plan of Professional Education has been a vital component of the educational objectives of Carnegie Mellon University. The ECE department continues to place great emphasis on problem solving and design based upon the traditions of the Carnegie Plan.

With the introduction of its innovative broad and flexible curriculum in 1991, the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department revitalized professional problem solving and design in their proper role in the engineering curriculum. The goal of ECE's curriculum is to create a flexible undergraduate educational experience, comprising: mathematics, science, computer science and statistics; general education (humanities, social sciences and fine arts); written and oral communication; electrical and computer engineering core, breadth, coverage, depth, and capstone design requirements; as well as free electives.


The Mission of the Carnegie Mellon University is to create a transformative educational experience for students focused on deep disciplinary knowledge; problem solving; leadership, communication, and interpersonal skills; and personal health and well-being.
