Engineering and Public Policy (EPP) is a unique department in the College of Engineering
at Carnegie Mellon University which addresses important problems in technology and policy in which the technical
details are of central importance. The department offers a research-oriented Ph.D. program and double-major
undergraduate B.S. programs with each of the five traditional engineering departments and Computer Science, a research-oriented Ph.D. program, and a master's degree in Engineering & Technology Innovation and Management (E&TIM).
Research in the department focuses on problems in:
energy and environmental systems
information and communication technology policy
risk analysis and communication; and
technical innovation and R&D policy.
Across these four focal areas we also study issues in engineered systems and domestic security, issues in technology and organizations and issues in technology and economic development. We frequently undertake the development of new software tools for the support of policy analysis and research.
