Privacy Engineering at Carnegie Mellon

We live in a data economy. Nearly every product, service or process with which we interact collects and processes some data about us. This data goes on to feed machine learning algorithms designed to predict our tastes, our habits, our future behaviors, or future possible health ailments to name just a few of the many different ways in which our data is consumed. Along with this increasing dependence on personal data, we have seen the emergence of increasingly stringent regulations designed to keep organizations that collect and process our data accountable. Regulations such as GDPR and CCPA also come with steep penalties for organizations that fail to meet their requirements. These developments have in turn created unprecedented demand for professionals capable of operating at the intersection of law and technology and led to the emergence of Privacy Engineering as a highly desirable career and one for which there is a significant shortage today.
