Carnegie Mellon University

Graduating class of 2014

The inaugural class of the world's first masters degree program in privacy engineering arrived at Carnegie Mellon University in August 2013.  Students finished their coursework in May of 2014 and spent the summer working on capstone projects until graduation in August 2014. 

We are happy to report that all students from this inaugural class are putting their Privacy Engineering degrees to good use by working in various positions in the industry!  Some have agreed to share their experiences thus far and have been kind enough to share contact information for future students to contact them with questions.
