Think globally, act locally.


Living in the Western Pennsylvania region provides you with local access to a world-class university with a worldwide reputation. Carnegie Mellon’s Master of Science in Information Technology (MSIT) program is centered on the intelligent blend of technology and management practices. It is an elite, part-time graduate program designed for experienced IT professionals ready to advance their career to the next level. We offer a balance of business and IT-related courses taught by distinguished faculty who are on the cutting-edge of their particular area of research, as well as by industry experts. You'll graduate with a better understanding of information technology from both operational and strategic management perspectives.

Courses through the part-time evening program are located at our Pittsburgh campus. As a student in the Heinz College evening program you can choose from the following degrees in which Carnegie Mellon has achieved world-renowned expertise:

Each degree is comprised of 144 units of coursework or the equivalent of 12 semester-long courses. You'll take 60 units of core courses specific to that degree and 84 units of electives. Electives can be from within Heinz College, other departments across campus, independent study or up to 24 units of transfer credit from previously earned graduate credit.

Heinz College evening classes are typically held 6:00-8:50 PM one evening per week (Monday-Thursday). We also have a late day period at 4:30-5:50 PM twice a week, usually on a Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday schedule.

Distance and daytime classes are also available. Occasionally there may be a core course taught only during the daytime hours, in which case we will record and provide it as a distance course to the evening students.

Some campus courses will require use of a laptop during class. Be sure you have one when the time comes. Please read our technology requirements first.

There is convenient, free on-campus parking after 5:00 PM and a PAT bus stop right by our building, Hamburg Hall at 4800 Forbes Avenue.
