The Mellon College of Science (MCS) at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA houses the Chemistry, Mathematical Sciences, Physics, and Biological Sciences departments. In addition, it oversees several interdisciplinary research centers. MCS also awards the Dickson Prize in Science.
