The Software Engineering Institute (SEI) at Carnegie Mellon University is a federally funded research and development center conducting software engineering research in acquisition, architecture and product lines, process improvement and performance measurement, security, and system interoperability and dependability.


  • performs research to explore promising solutions to software engineering problems
  • identifies and codifies technological and methodological solutions
  • tests and refines the solutions through pilot programs that help industry and government solve their problems, and
  • widely disseminates proven solutions through training, licensing, and publication of best practices.

SEI is the home of the US-CERT Program.
