The Software Engineering Institute (SEI) at Carnegie Mellon University is a Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC)—a nonprofit, public–private partnership that conducts research for the United States government. One of only 10 FFRDCs sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), the SEI conducts R&D in software engineering, systems engineering, cybersecurity, and many other areas of computing, working to introduce private-sector innovations into government.
As the only FFRDC sponsored by the DoD that is also authorized to work with organizations outside of the DoD, the SEI is unique. We work with partners throughout the U.S. government, the private sector, and academia. These partnerships enable us to take innovations from concept to practice, closing the gap between research and use.
