DEPARTMENT OF ENGINEERING AND PUBLIC POLICY


Engineering and Public Policy (EPP) at Carnegie Mellon University is a unique interdisciplinary department in the College of Engineering. Its faculty members include engineers and social scientists, most holding joint appointments in a traditional engineering department or other university unit. EPP offers a research-oriented Ph.D. program, as well as double-major undergraduate B.S. programs with each of the five traditional engineering departments and Computer Science. It also offers an M.S. degree in Engineering & Technology Innovation and Management. Current research activities include issues in energy and environmental systems and policy; information and communication technology policy; risk analysis and communication; and technical innovation and R&D policy. A hallmark of the department is its focus on policy problems in which the technical details matter and cannot be treated simply as a "black box." For more about EPP, see: http://www.epp.cmu.edu/.
