    research and development center at Carnegie
    Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
    (since 1984).
  • Following the Morris worm incident, which brought
    10 percent of internet systems to a halt in
    November 1988, the U.S. Department of Defense
    charged the SEI with setting up a center to
    coordinate communication among experts during

Quote from Jesse Schell, CEO Schell Games,
Lecturer/Asst. Prof. at ETC (MSIN Class of 1993)
  • The thing to understand about the INI is the
    opportunities it's going to give you. Yes, you're
    going to have world-class educational
    opportunities, you're going to be able to take
    the greatest classes from the greatest
    instructors, and you're going to be side-by-side,
    shoulder-to-shoulder with people who are going to
    go out and change the world. However, the main
    thing to understand is the freedom you're going
    to have to make the program be whatever you want
    it to be. Almost anything you can think of, you
    can make it happen at the INI if you want to."
