Empower Students.

Stellic sprung out as a student-driven project because we saw the need for an empowering student-facing platform. We are focused on one goal: To help students get the best value out of their college journey and get them ready for the careers they aspire.

Our Story

Stellic (previously known as Metis) was founded by Carnegie Mellon undergraduates after getting frustrated by the clunky, complicated, isolated tools they were given to organize their academic journey. Under the mentorship of university academic advisors who were equally frustrated with the existing degree planning process and overwhelmed with their load, the team pursued their goal of building an integrated platform with intelligence and flexiblity. The project received appreciation from the campus community and won Research Awards – pushing the team to build a company providing student-centric tools to higher education.

The three founders, all Carnegie Mellon graduates, come from different backgrounds, speak seven languages, and bring in a diverse skill-set (more in team section). The team has just recently graduated from their college and deeply understands students behavior, their challenges and motivations. Stellic’ purpose is to use this understanding to craft impactful tools that maximize students’ chance of after-college success. And we’re doing this under the mentorship of some of the best, experienced advisors in this space.
