We're an international research and education institution. CMU's founder put it best. "My heart is in the work." - Andrew Carnegie

This Friday marks the sixth anniversary of the passing of Randy Pausch, beloved CMU professor known for the New York Times Bestseller “The Last Lecture.” Randy is memorialized on campus with the Pausch Bridge. He often reminded students that even in dangerous waters, one penguin had to be brave enough to take the first dive. The design of the Pausch Bridge pays tribute to all the “penguins” of the world with abstract penguin cut-outs.
