Success Stories from Faculty Exchange Members >> 

The Carnegie Mellon Portugal Program supports faculty exchange programs, in which academics from Portuguese universities can spend at least one term working in research and education at Carnegie Mellon to experience the culture of a top United States university. Carnegie Mellon professors are also given the opportunity to spend time in Portugal to engage in teaching and research activities with local institutions of higher education and research labs.
