Highlights of the program:
The Learning Science and Engineering Professional Masters Program (LSE)
The Master of Science in Learning Science and Engineering program offers students who have a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in such areas as psychology, education, computer science, information technology, business, or design the opportunity to improve their training with advanced study in Learning Science and Engineering. Our students will gain the knowledge, skills, and techniques to develop and evaluate programs in learning settings that range from schools to workplaces, museums to computer-based environments—as well as other formal, informal and non-traditional educational settings. Graduates of the program will take key positions in corporations and private and public universities and schools; they will become designers, developers, and evaluators of educational technologies and learning environments as well as domain experts, learning technology policy-makers, or Chief Learning Officers.
The program integrates fundamental skills with project-based studio classes culminating in a final capstone project. It is distinct from the Learning Science track in the HCII PhD program, and, in particular, it is not designed as a feeder to that PhD program.
Upon completion of the Master of Science in Learning Science and Engineering, graduates will:
Carnegie Mellon University is known by the software and technical industries for it’s interdisciplinary nature, rigor and deep knowledge in Learning Science, Human-Computer Interaction, Psychology, Design, and Computer Science. This is a two-year masters degree set into a twelve month duration. During their first and second semesters, students learn core knowledge and skills in learning principles, technology design, and implementation as well as choose from a range of electives. During their second and third semesters the students participate in a substantial industry capstone project with an external client.
