    CMU MHCI vs UW MHCI+D

    Hey guys! I just got accepted into CMU's MHCI program and am so happy. I'm just waiting on University of Washington MHCI+D's decision. If I get rejected from UW, I'm going to CMU. However, if I get accepted to UW, I'll have to make a decision. I might be jumping the gun here, but I want to get some outside thoughts and give myself enough time to think. I'm leaning towards CMU because it seems to be slightly better overall. Is there any reason that someone should take UW over CMU? UW is a fair bit cheaper, and it's located in Seattle where it will be easier to transition into a job afterward (but I don't think job placement is an issue with CMU). I know that CMU is focused a little more on theory, but they still have the capstone project to help build a portfolio. If anyone is also making a similar decision please share your thoughts! Any insights to the program beyond what's on the websites would be really helpful. Thank you!
  2. Hi, need some advice! I really don't know what to make of my situation right now. Should I be elated or just downright sad? Am I being too sceptical, or just playing it safe? I received an admit from Carnegie Mellon University and the University of California, Berkeley for my PhD (Direct Entry) in Mechanical Engineering. I was given a potential research advisor for both universities and told to contact him regarding my research domain and funding. It was only upon discussing further with the profs did I realise that both the offers were without funding!! I mean, who does a PhD WITHOUT FUNDING!? That too, being an international student from India, there is no way anyone can even consider these offers! Graduate studies in itself, is way too expensive. Now, upon explaining to the department regarding the current condition, they told me to approach other professors who would have a position available. I'm doing that right now, but it doesn't seem to be going anywhere. I have applied to Purdue, UIUC, UTexas Austin and UMichigan as well, but I still haven't received any information yet. If my plan goes all south, I will be stuck making one of these mentioned things- I either choose to pursue my PhD in one of the universities and decide to search for a potential advisor and funding en-route (Very, Very risky). Or, I request the university to convert my admit to an M.S program (unfunded) and think of a PhD later on (Not sure if possible in the first place). Any advice?
  3. I've been admitted to CMU, Pitt, NUS, and EPFL, but now I'm going to focus more on CMU and EPFL. I finished my master's degree in materials science here at CMU, but I haven't contact any research advisor at CMU. EPFL admission committee has approved me to look for a suitable advisor with funding. Today an EPFL professor contact me and we had a great conversation. He is doing research in fuel cell field, which I am interested in. In CMU, I have completed most of my course credits which can be easily transferred to my PhD stage, so I can better focus on my research. In EPFL, the PhD program is a four-year one, and Lausanne is a French-speaking area, which means I have to learn some French more or less, but I really got fascinated by this country. The living expense is also an issue. It seems that the living cost in Switzerland is much higher than that in Pittsburgh. I don't really know if the PhD salary at EPFL could cover my daily expense (maybe have a trip in a year or two).
  4. Recently I've got an admission from ETIM integrated CS program at CMU. As far as I know, this is a new program which is derived from the ETIM program and collaborated with the SCS. Does anyone know anything about this program, like the course quality, workload, CS electives etc. ?
  5. Hi guys, I have applied for MS in Information Security (MSIS) program offered by CMU's INI. I got a mail from the department saying - "We are in the process of making a final review of your application and we are wondering if you would consider being admitted to our Information Security (MSIT-IS) Bicoastal program in addition to your first choice of MSIS. Please let me know if you are open to this request." Does this mean I'm being considered for the Bicoastal program instead of my first choice of MSIS program? Also, should I consider the Bicoastal program?
  6. Anyone applied to CMU METALS (Master of Educational Technology and Applied Learning Science)? I applied to the METALS program but has not heard from it yet, nor is there any visit on my portfolio. One can only wait.

    Will there be any possibility to receive a tuition waiver?

    Dear readers, Hello, I have been recently admitted to Carnegie Mellon University Mechanical Engineering's M.S. - Research Program. The offer letter says that this program is self-funded and there is no available scholarships or fellowships from the department. Does it mean that I cannot take a research assistant position from any laboratories? I thought M.S. students can also receive tuition waive + stipend if they find proper RA position. This is really big deal cause I cannot afford whole expenditures by myself, and then I should decide the university that I admitted as Ph.D. program... I am trying to contact with professors asking possible RA position, but I am not sure this is the way that I can get tuition waiver. Thank you for reading the topic!

    CMU MCDS or CMU MSR

    I have been accepted to the Master of Computational Data Science (MCDS) program at Carnegie Mellon University. The decision ddl is April 1. However, I am also on the waiting list of MS in Robotics (MSR) and the final decision is expected to be made by April 6. I prefer MSR, but MCDS is also acceptable. What should I do? Thank you very much!
  11. Hi guys! Last week I received the link for a video interview with regard to the application for CMU's MSPPM-DA track. Although, it's optional, it's highly recommended for international students. I am an international student and do not even have a good Speaking score in TOEFL (24). I am really worried and nervous as well thinking about whether appearing for this will increase my chances or worsen it. Those who've already given this interview, could you please help me understand how was your experience and whether I should take this (in your opinion)?
  12. I have got admission from BGSU(Ph.D. in Data Science) and CMU (MS in Applied Statistics & Analytics) Which one should I go for? I am referring to learning and future job opportunities. Thanks

    CMU P&AL Program

    Not sure whether this is a sound question for the forum, but nevertheless: I am currently a junior at BU studying Math&Philosophy and since last year has been vehemently trying to do my best to prepare in any way to apply for the Pure and Applied Logic program at CMU. The problem is, even with e-mailing some of the students and faculty, a lot of the people don't have specific recommendations. If anybody is familiar with the program: what kind of training do they usually require from the applicants to get in? Would extremely appreciate advise from whomever applied there right from BA, since I do not think I can bear the financial burden.
  15. Hi Guys, I have got admission into the Electrical and Computer Engineering Program at Pittsburg for Spring 2019 even though I applied for Fall 2018. I had a few doubts about Spring Program in General. Would be great if you all could help me out. Are there any differences in the course offerings at CMU Pittsburgh for the Fall and the Spring Program. Could you please throw some light on this. Would also be great if there is a link to check all the course offerings for the Spring Semester at CMU. Would an admission in Spring play a detrimental role in the internship opportunities given that a Spring admit student would be beginning his course after 6 months in comparison to a Fall Student. Any differences in the final job offerings at the end of the MS Program for a Spring and Fall Admit Student. The program that I have been given admission to is Professional MS. A lot of people tell me that it is a normal MS with focus on coursework. Is this true ? I have got a Fall admission at SUNY Stony Brook in Computer Engineering. Is that better given that CMU is offering only Spring. How is CMU for specialisation in Networks, Security and IoT ? Please do let me know your answers on this. Thanks
  16. Hey everyone, I've recently got admits at CMU MCDS (systems track) and Georgia Tech MSCS. I want to do mostly systems courses, especially OS, and am not into ML/AI. I'm trying to keep both prospects of job/PhD open which makes it hard to decide - by this I mean at the moment I will be going down the job path (related to systems), but I do not want to completely cut off the possibility of a PhD, so if I get a chance to do some research that would help me in the future then it would be great. I do not want to decide purely based on brand name (CMU) or fees (GaTech) but I find myself falling back on these two criteria all the time. Hoping for a more holistic outlook from others. Could anyone provide their opinion as to which they would pick and why? TIA :
  17. I have gotten an admit for spring in CMU and for Fall in UCSD in electrical engineering department. i want to specialise in signal and image processing for biomedical applications. considering the fact i wouldn't be able to intern in cmu and its way costlier, can someone tell me which is a better school for research and job opportunities?

    CMU MSISPM

    Hi all, I was recently accepted into Carnegie Mellon's Heinz school for their MSISPM degree, which I am really excited about. However, before I make any decisions I really would like to find out more about the direction this program will point me post education. Here are some questions that I feel will help to guide me. They are geared for students who have previously been admitted or are currently admitted. I'll add that I would like to sharpen my technical skills (pen testing / network security) because those are where I am lacking. My undergraduate degree is in computer security, but it is very policy/management oriented. Thanks! What other programs/schools did you look at? What made you pick this program over others? What’s the technical crossover available for Heinz students? (i.e. I know they have classes at the INI school that you can potentially take.) What job are you trying to get? What’s the coolest project you’ve worked on? How many hours a day for classes, home work, research?

    CMU ETIM vs Purdue MEM

    Hi everyone! I've been accepted to the Dual Master's Program in Mechanical Engineering and Engineering & Technology Innovation Management at CMU and the Master's in Engineering Management Program at Purdue. I'm having a hard time deciding between the two. I'm a mechanical engineering undergrad with no work experience, and my short-term aim is to find a job in the industry after graduation. CMU Pros: (i) An MS in Mechanical Engineering means I have the option of choosing a core engineering sector job after graduation. The E&TIM MS would open up sectors like product management, technical consultancy, operations and supply chain management etc. for me. (ii) The brand name, plus the inherent emphasis on technology that comes with any program at CMU. (iii) Small batch size. Cons: (i) Expensive. Costs twice as much as Purdue. (ii) Has a 3-month internship component, compared to a 12 month long co-op program at Purdue. Since my primary aim is to work in the industry after graduation, I suppose a longer US-based work experience will give me an edge, in addition to better networking opportunities. (iii) The mechanical engineering department at CMU is not as good as that at Purdue. Purdue Pros: (i) Relatively cheaper. Which means I have the option to go back to my home country and pay back my education loans from there, in the worst case scenario where I don't like the US work culture at all (can't do this with CMU since the loan is much larger). (ii) As stated earlier, a 12-month long co-op internship gives me a better chance of securing employment after gradation. Plus there's an opportunity to convert that internship into a job. This co-op is the biggest plus in my opinion. (iii) Small batch size. Cons: (i) Most of the alumni here go into core engineering jobs initially, before moving on to engineering or product management profiles. This makes me doubtful as to how this degree is different from a traditional Mechanical Engineering MS degree. (ii) The school's overall reputation is a bit lower than CMU (?) Any ideas you guys might have on my dilemma?
  20. Is there any whatsapp group for students joining MS, CEE (civil and environmental engineering) carnegie mellon university in fall 2018??
  21. Hi, I have been admitted to CMU's MSPPM Pittsburgh track. I understand that it is a Masters in Science degree. However, I could not find any written material saying MSPPM is a STEM affiliated degree and the graduates are eligible for OPT extension. I absolutely love the program and everything it offers. But I really need to know if I will be eligible for the OPT extension post graduation. Can someone please clarify this? Thanks
  22. I am incredibly excited to have been offered admission at CMU and Univerisity of Michigan for both MS in Robotics. My education background is BS in ME at Umich. I am an international student holding an F1 visa. I have many research experience in control. In my graduate school, I would like to incline my research interest towards control by using machine learning/ artificial intelligence. This means I would like to have some transition from ME towards CS, and this is also one of the reasons why I applied for the Robotics program. After graduation, I don't know yet whether I want to continue for Ph.D. but I do know that I don't want a programming job. Some of my considerations (I do not care about the cost or funding issues): Ranking (in terms of robotics, especially in the field of control or AI) Location: Pittsburgh vs Ann Arbor - Which one has more job/internship opportunities? Especially for a foreign student. Research opportunity Quality of graduate school I would like to thank you for any comments.
  23. I am admitted to the master of data science program at Harvard and MIIS at CMU. I am trying to decide between the two programs. Harvard's brand name is really attractive, but I don't know if a master is considered an alumnus. And also CMU is number 1 in CS field. I went to Umich for undergraduate and I majored in computer science. My current career goal is to become an SDE or data scientist after graduating from grad school. But I didn't completely rule out the possibility of getting a Ph.D. I would really appreciate any advice!
  24. Hello, I have received an admit from ECE CMU and ECE Georgia Tech. My interest lies in computer architecture, FPGAs, digital design and hardware acceleration. I feel the course of CMU is better than Georgia Tech. But I am confused whether ECE CMU really worth spending extra 30K USD? At Georgia, I will have a better opportunity of getting an RA or TA. At CMU, program is professional masters while at Georgia I have an option to choose Thesis . I request you to please provide a better comparison of two programs from the perspective of my technical interests. Any help is appreciated.
