Carnegie Mellon’s MSIT degree is specifically designed for experienced IT professionals looking to remain in their job. You'll engage with faculty possessing strong academic credentials and real world experience. They'll equip you with the knowledge you need to achieve greater success in your career.
The MSIT curriculum is immersed with challenging courses designed to tap into your innovation potential. Class sizes are kept small and course content is career relevant. You'll choose from among one of these curriculum tracks—information technology management, information security and assurance, or software design and management.
To earn the MSIT degree, either through the evening program or distance learning education, you'll have to complete 144 units of coursework—60 units in one of the curriculum tracks and an additional 84 units of electives.
If you are applying for the distance learning program, you may choose either the information technology management track or information security and assurance track. We do not offer our software design and management track in our distance learning program but you may be interested in another distance program in software engineering management that we offer jointly with the School of Computer Science and Software Engineering Institute.
