Carnegie Mellon University is a private, global research university with renowned educational institutions, which consists of seven schools and colleges. With more than 100 centers and institutes, the research area at Carnegie Mellon University spreads over a great variety of fields. The IECP Program is a cooperation between the College of Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University and E.ON ERC. Possible research areas for interested students may include electricity generation, storage, transmission and distribution; electricity markets, environmental systems as well as the effects of global climate change.



For some universities a proof of financial support is necessary. Especially universities in the United States of America often require a financial statement from students. This is also necessary even if students do not pay tuition fees. Students traveling to the U.S. need to be aware that they will be asked to provide a proof of sufficient financial support for the entire duration. The minimum support can vary (for example Carnegie Mellon University requires a minimum support of approximately 2300 $/month).
