An Environment and Resources that Inspire Creativity in Students Across Disciplines

Creativity, informed by deep disciplinary knowledge and skill, flourishes at Carnegie Mellon University. Every day, CMU’s talented undergraduate and graduate students are challenged to generate new ideas, new modes of expression, and new responses to social and cultural issues.

Through work in visual art and design studios and performance spaces, CMU promotes learning by making and doing across disciplines. The technology labs of the IDeAte Program extend students’ computational skills to further enhance artistic expression.
