The INI educates and develops engineers through technical, interdisciplinary master's degree programs in information networking, security and mobile, AI and IoT engineering that incorporate business and policy perspectives. Established in 1989 in response to a demand from industry for professionals skilled in both computer science and engineering, the INI has evolved over the past three decades to become an integral part of Carnegie Mellon's College of Engineering (a top five engineering school as ranked by U.S. News and World Report). Given the interdisciplinary nature of our programs, INI students have the unprecedented flexibility to take courses across disciplinary boundaries, such as computer science, engineering, public policy, management, machine learning and human-computer interaction, among others.

We are seeking faculty candidates in our core technical areas of networking, security and mobile, AI and IoT engineering, including but not limited to mobile computing, embedded systems, Internet of Things technologies, telecommunications, data analytics and artificial intelligence, information security, software security, network security, artificial intelligence and cyber operations. Outstanding candidates in other areas related to networking, security and mobile and AI and IoT engineering are encouraged to apply. Teaching faculty play a vital role in advancing the INI's educational mission; we value candidates who are dedicated to enhancing student learning and demonstrate a passion for teaching a diverse student population.
From our uniquely interdisciplinary program structure and applied learning opportunities to our supportive advising model and exceptional student services, the INI is committed to delivering a transformational educational experience for our graduate students. Teaching track faculty have a primary responsibility of designing and leading courses and projects for INI, in addition to advising and mentoring students. They also have opportunities to pursue activities that align with their interests, such as advising student-led, industry-sponsored projects. Overall, INI faculty play an influential role in advancing the department's strategic initiatives.
