Student research at CMU-Q

Research is part of the fabric of a Carnegie Mellon education: undergraduates are encouraged to explore new ideas, test hypotheses and share results with the community. Research is work that matters.

Students undertake senior thesis projects, pursue independent studies guided by faculty mentors, initiate their own projects, and partake in summer research programs within Carnegie Mellon University and Education City.
