CMU-Q bridges gap between industry and student researchers
Meeting of the Minds exemplifies Carnegie Mellon’s vibrant and collaborative research philosophy. The initiative provides students with a platform to explore topics of interest in depth outside the classroom, paving the way for them to become the experts of tomorrow.
In 1979, CMU established the first Robotics Institute in the United States. Since then, Carnegie Mellon has been a robotics pioneer, founding the discipline of Field Robotics, developing unmanned vehicles and leading the Tartan Racing Team to victory in the $2 million Urban Challenge robotic autonomous vehicles race.
