Our Organization

The Software Engineering Institute (SEI) is a not-for-profit Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) at Carnegie Mellon University, specifically established by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to focus on software and cybersecurity.

As an FFRDC, the SEI fills voids where in-house and private sector research and development centers are unable to meet DoD core technology needs. For government and industry, the SEI is an objective, unbiased, honest broker that

  • maintains a critical mass of top-caliber software and cyber professionals
  • provides a central repository for information about software engineering and cybersecurity
  • develops and maintains core competence in areas critical to the DoD
  • serves as an intellectual crossroads and catalyst for change

We help government and industry organizations develop software-reliant systems that are more affordable, more agile, more reliable, and more secure. Through the strength of our workforce and our focused research, we provide immediate and long-term integrated solutions.
