Evolving from trade school to internationally recognized research university, Carnegie has remained true to 3 primary objectives: to deliver distinctive, first-quality education; to foster research, creativity and discovery; and to use the new knowledge created on campus to serve society. Despite many changes, the Carnegie of today has much in common with the Carnegie Technical Schools of 1900. The school encourages great thinkers with diverse backgrounds to collaborate toward practical goals. It preaches collaboration and innovation across traditional barriers of knowledge, producing extraordinary individuals who leave their mark on the world. Above all, Carnegie still maintains a commitment to students, practical research and education.
