Why Pittsburgh?

You might have heard about the city we call home, because Pittsburgh is definitely the place to be these days. We're the place to live. We're the place to work. And we're certainly the place to go to college. We're a home to big tech companies like Google, Facebook, Uber and Apple.

Part of the reason those companies have opened offices in Pittsburgh — and have helped the city thrive when other Rust Belt neighbors have struggled — is not just CMU's presence here, but the School of Computer Science specifically. (You can read all about it in this great New York Times article from July 2017.)

Pittsburgh isn't all work, no play though. When you need a break, great food, art, sports and museums are steps away from campus. And it's all easy to get to.
