At the Carnegie Mellon University Software Engineering Institute (SEI), our interdisciplinary research and development (R&D) teams provide our government and industry customer organizations with new perspectives, expertise, and rigorous investigation regarding tough problems, in order to develop answers that are at once practical and innovative.
Our government R&D sponsors trust our expertise in software engineering and cybersecurity and deep experience with the concerns of the Department of Defense (DoD), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Department of Energy, and other agencies.
Our industry R&D sponsors benefit from using their earliest access to results to improve development, streamline operations, and gain an edge on competitors.
Our work with sponsoring organizations provides valuable insight into the adoption of improved practices. Further, while scrupulously protecting our customers' confidentiality, we distill the results of sponsored R&D into principles and practices that benefit the wider software industry.
The SEI has investigated several solutions that are ready for the next step: application to solve a customer need as part of a sponsored R&D project. Ask us about one of these areas or about anything related to R&D.
