美国留学:卡内基梅隆大学CS专业介绍

美国 CS 专业学校介绍系列之-卡内基梅隆大学

No.1 Carnegie Mellon University

学校简介:

卡内基梅隆大学,简称 CMU,是 20 世纪美国四大财阀之一的安德鲁.卡内基和美国著名银行家安德鲁.梅隆于 1900 年出资成立的,学校最初只有科学和技术学院(培养工艺师和助理工程师),艺术学校(培养设计师和手艺人)培养制造业和建筑业的学徒工和熟练工,后来逐渐发展成为一个私立的研究型学校,包括本科,研究生和博士学位。学校主校区位于宾夕法尼亚州的匹茨堡,紧挨着匹茨堡大学,距离 downtown 匹茨堡大概 5 公里路程。现在在硅谷有分校区。之前,硅谷校区因为学位建设不成熟,教授数量不及主校区而申请难度比匹茨堡小,但是近几年随着 CMU 的难度越来越大,硅谷校区凭借自己独特的地理位置优势,学生在找实习和找工作方面的优势而受到学生的青睐,申请难度也逐渐增加。在每年“学生累得像狗的大学排名中”一直位居前几,与加州理工大学,麻省理工学院,芝加哥大学,还有普林斯顿大学等共同被评为美国乃至全球训练最残酷的学校。但是在就业方面,不管美国的经济如何,就业形势是不是不景气,一般都不会影响到 CMU 计算机专业的学生。

优势学科:

一提到 CMU,当然首先想到的是这个学校的计算机专业,它的计算机学科稳居美国第一的位置。计算机科学学院(school of computer science, SCS)学院校开设了 7 个部门和机构,分别为计算生物学部门( Computational Biology Department),计算机科学部门( Computer Science Department),人机交互研究所(Human-Computer Interaction Institute),软件研究所(Institute for Software Research),语言技术研究所(Language Technologies Institute, LTI),机器学习部分(Machine Learning Department)及机器人研究所( Robotics Institute)是美国少数几个将计算机科学专业独立成院的大学之一,是美国乃至全世界最大的计算机学院,该院可授予学士,硕士,博士学位,课程有数学,物理,计算机硬件,软件工程,技术那技巧,人工智能,心里学,程序设计,机器人等。同时,CMU 还将自己在计算机领域的优势普及到了各个学科,各学位都与计算机技术密切结合,比如传统的土木工程专业。除此之外,CMU还鼓励学生打破传统学科舒服,在交叉学科领域探索和研究而举世闻名。学校内还设有独特的跨学科项目,如 Master of science in computational biology(MSCB,计算机生物学硕士,由计算机学院于梅隆理学院合办),Master of entertainment technology(ETC, 计算机科学学院和艺术学院共同组建的娱乐技术中心,娱乐科技硕士),Master of science in music and technology(由计算机科学学院和技术学院合办),Master of Engineering & technology innovation management(工程宇科技创新管理硕士),Ph.D program in machine learning(机器学习博士项目)等等,为各个领域的学生提供了广阔的训练机会。

此外,除了计算机科学以外,该校的艺术学院(College of Fine Arts)和 Tepper 商学院(Tepper School of Business)有非常出名,其商学院仅次于达特茅斯商学院。

知名校友:

在众多的校友中,有我们熟知的李开复,前 Google 中国总裁;陆奇, 前微软全球执行副总裁;吴恩达,人工智能与机器学习领域国际最权威的学者之一,前百度首席科学家,斯坦福大学教授,在线教育平台 coursera 的联合创始人。

Graduate admissions: https://www.cs.cmu.edu/masters-admissions

You may apply to up to three Ph.D. programs and any of master's programs. 关于申请专业,

在 SCS 系里学生可以申请 3 个 Ph.D program ,硕士数量不限。另外,针对大家关心的,申请几个 program 会不会只能拿到一个 offer,答案是 No. 他们会独立审核,和发送录取,所以可能拿到不止一个录取,只是最终你只能接受一个。

Nov. 30, 2017 - Reduced Application Fees end 12:01 p.m. EST Dec. 14, 2017 - Final deadline - noon (12 p.m.) EST

关于申请时间,11.30,前申请费减免,第一个是 75, 此外每加一个是 50 美金,12.14 日每个项目申请费是 125 美金。

Is there spring admission? No. CMU 的 CS 没有春季招生。

Application requirements:

Test Scores

All test scores must be uploaded (as a PDF) to your application. If they are not uploaded by December 14, you will not have access to upload them and your application may not be considered.

GRE 和 BIT 成绩,在网申时必须上传电子版的,否则不予审核。很多学校都有上传电子版的地方,但是并不是强制的,CMU 是申请材料中必需的,所以以后提醒学生,这个文件必需提前准备好。

关于对 IBT 成绩的要求:

If your native language is not English, then you must submit the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). All students will need to submit a TOEFL. No exceptions.

If you are currently working on or have received a bachelor's and/or a master's degree in the U.S. and your native language is not English, the TOEFL is still required. However, you may submit an expired test score up to five years old.

针对美本的学生能不能免托的事情,CMU 是 No, 在美国读研究生的当然也不能。只是 5 年没的就可以。

If you have not completed a bachelor’s degree in the U.S., you will need to submit a TOEFL no older than two years. We will NOT accept an expired score in this case. No

exceptions.

A successful applicant will normally have a total iBT score of at least 100. We prefer that you take the TOEFL, but we will accept the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). The same restrictions of expiration dates apply with an IELTS.

针对用雅思申请美国的学生,CMU 的态度是更接受托福成绩。托福的最低要求是 100 分,但是雅思 7.0 可能拿不到录取,因为 CMU 跟喜欢托福。

Please send your scores to the following codes:

GRE Institution Code: 2074; Department Code: 0402

TOEFL Institution Code: 4256; Department Code: 78

Required documents:

Trans

We do not require mailed, hard versions of trans at the time of application. Do not mail your trans to the admissions office. If you are accepted to a program, you will be given instructions to then mail them.

CMU,CS 下的专业申请时都不用邮寄成绩单原件。

Resume

Submit your current Resume. Outline your education, research experience, work experience, publications, scholarships awarded, prizes and honors received, society memberships, and any other extracurricular activities.

针对申请 CS 的学生,如果经历比较丰富,建议学生制作一个个人主页,把链接放进简历中。

Statement of Purpose

Submit a Statement of Purpose. Prepare a concise one or two page essay that describes your primary areas of interest in research, your related experiences, and your objective in pursuing a graduate degree at Carnegie Mellon. Your essay should be specific in describing your interests and motivations. When describing your research interests, you should explain why you think they are important areas of study and why you are particularly well-suited to pursuing them. You should describe any relevant education, research, commercial, government, or teaching experience. If you are applying to more than one program, you may (but are not required to) submit a separate Statement of Purpose for each program. You must upload your Resume and Statement of Purpose in either PDF, MS Word, or text format. Include your name and User ID on the essay.

申请不止一个 program ,可以提交同一个 SOP。

Letters of Recommendation

Submit three letters of recommendation. Recommenders should know you relatively well and be able to evaluate the quality of your previous work. At least two should be from faculty or recent employers. With the online application, letters will be requested and submitted electronically. Paper recommendations will not be accepted. Letters of recommendation are due by December 14. All deadlines are final. Letters received after this date may not be considered in the review of your application.

关于推荐信,CMU 的要求是其中 2 个是跟专业相关的,不管是 academic 还是 industry 的。

另外推荐信的 ddl 跟申请的截止日期是一样的,这一点一定要提醒学生。

网申链接: https://applygrad.cs.cmu.edu/apply/offline.php

There is a common online application form available for admission to SCS Ph.D. programs and any master's programs (except for the Master of Science in Computational Biology) within the School of Computer Science. With the SCS Graduate Online Application, you may apply to up to three Ph.D. programs and any of master's programs.

FAQs:

Should I contact faculty members directly?

You should feel free to contact professors with very specific questions about their research. However, we do request that you not ask to be accepted by a particular faculty member as a student, since under our admissions system individual faculty members do not make admissions decisions. Selection is by decision of the Admissions Committee, and students are not assigned an advisor until the beginning of the fall semester — after having an opportunity to attend project presentations by all faculty. You may obtain email addresses for anyone in the School of Computer Science (SCS) from the directory

CMU 的博士申请是学院制的,也就是在入学之前都是学院确实是否被录取,录取后第二年分配导师,所以即使是申请博士,也不需要套教授。

Once I begin a master's program in SCS, is it possible to change to another program?

The school allows you to transfer from one program to another after your first year of enrollment, subject to the transfer policy adopted by each program.

对于在 CMU 转专业是允许的,不过要看各系的具体政策

Do you accept IELTS?

We prefer that you take the TOEFL, but we will accept the IELTS. Your official score report should be uploaded to your application and sent via mail. A TOEFL score of 100 is equivalent to an IELTS score of 7.

尽管学校说托福 100+雅思 7.0 ,但是学校更愿意接受托福成绩,所以还是建议提供托福。

What scores should I enter if I have taken the GRE test more than once?

Enter the scores from your most recent test. All scores will appear on the official score report for the committee to review.

在送分时,其实你所有的考试成绩都会体现,我们不管是送分还是学校审核都会参考最好的成绩。

If I am applying to two programs, can I submit a different Statement of Purpose for each program?

Yes. However, if you are submitting different statements, submit them as one file.

关于申请多个 program 是不是需要写多个 SOP 的事情,因为即使是多个也跟多的也是最后一段做些修改,而且学校要求你合并在一个 PDF 里,所以提供一份是没有问题的。

Our offices are closed during the Winter Holiday Break (Dec. 20–Jan. 6)

CMU 的 ddl 是 12.14 号,但是从 20 号开始就放假了,到元月 7 号上班,所以申请基本是从 7

号后开始审核的。 出结果多是在 1 月底,2 月初的多。
