General description

At the invitation of the South Australian Government, Carnegie Mellon University opened its campus in Adelaide in 2006., becoming the first international university to establish a campus in Australia.

Carnegie Mellon University in Australia is the Asia-Pacific base of a global CMU footprint which includes campuses in Silicon Valley, Washington DC, Rwanda and Qatar.

Located in Adelaide, the world’s tenth Most Liveable City (The Economist Intelligence Unit 2018) and Australia’s most affordable mainland capital city, Carnegie Mellon's Australian campus is home to students from over 20 countries, creating a wide-reaching network of contemporaries, global experts and alumni.

Students graduate with a Carnegie Mellon University US degree, and are taught by highly-qualified faculty from Adelaide, Pittsburgh, and Washington D.C. using face-to-face and video conference delivery. Small student-to-faculty ratios ensure that the faculty provide students with personalised attention to meet their individual needs.
