Information Networking Institute

United States


The Information Networking Institute (INI) was established by Carnegie Mellon University in 1989 as the nation's first research and education center devoted to information networking. As an integral department of the College of Engineering and a collaboration of the School of Computer Science, Tepper School of Business, and H. John Heinz III College, the INI's professional graduate degree programs represent an exceptional fusion of technologies, economics and policies of secure communication networks, systems and services. The INI also promotes safe and responsible online behavior to citizens at all levels and partners with like-minded organizations to extend cyberawareness educational and outreach programs to the broad audience of people using information networking as part of their daily lives. The INI programs at global partner institutions have become a paragon for international education within Carnegie Mellon and around the world. Using advanced facilities and resources, the programs combine local and distance education to train students in cutting-edge technologies. Top students from around the world attend the INI, seeking the broadened perspective and enriched skill sets necessary to design solutions, manage teams and lead enterprises in today's global networked information technology marketplace.
