Carnegie Mellon University in Australia

Carnegie Mellon University in Australia is the Australian campus of Carnegie Mellon University's H. John Heinz III College established in 2006 in the city centre of Adelaide, South Australia.

The move by Heinz to establish a campus in Australia was announced in Pittsburgh in 2005 by South Australian Premier Mike Rann, following negotiations with Carnegie Mellon President Jared Cohon.[4]

Carnegie Mellon University in Australia is founded on the proposition that the study of public policy and of information technology, independently and jointly, provides a uniquely powerful platform from which to influence the world of the 21st Century. We are the only academic institution in the world that pursues this goal through a unified faculty that comprises management science, social science, and information technology in roughly equal parts. It is our mission to utilise the research and education this platform enables to have a positive influence on the evolution of societies, economic systems, organizations and individual lives around the world.

Carnegie Mellon University in Australia is part of CMU’s growing global presence, which now has more than a dozen degree-granting locations. The Adelaide campus, is a replica of our main American campus and the degrees granted here are conferred by our main campus in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The criteria for admissions, the curriculum of programs, the calibre of the faculty, and the comprehensive support services match what Pittsburgh offers.
At CMU Australia we understand that prospective post-graduate students are looking to study at an institution that offers a top degree which will set you apart from your peers.

Our Master’s programs are ranked among the Top 10 US universities. We strive for excellence because we want to attract students who strive to be the best information technologists, information systems managers, and public sector professionals that they can be.
The second is our record of performance. The university values good results and the impact that our faculty and graduates make in the world. Our faculty members in Pittsburgh, Adelaide and other campuses have distinguished themselves in their respective areas. The various awards they have received testify to their professional competencies and help explain why our graduates go on to achieve their own successes in different fields.
