“IDeATe is the single coolest thing that CMU has to offer, and I recommend literally every student to take at least one course in the department.” – Statistics May 2022 graduate

“IDeATe is a great program and really influenced my independence as a student at CMU. I took classes that expanded my interdisciplinary breadth of knowledge and introduced me to technical skills I did not know I had an interest in.” – Psychology May 2022 graduate
