CMU Portugal Ph.D. Educational offer

The Carnegie Mellon Portugal Program currently offers, with the support of the Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT) and in a partnership with various higher education institutions in Portugal and Carnegie Mellon, two different types of Ph.D. programs and scholarships:  Dual Degree Ph.D. Programs available since the start of the international partnership in 2006 and the Affiliated Ph.D. Programs launched for the first time in 2021. Upon completion of the Dual Degree Ph.D., students receive a dual degree as students from both Carnegie Mellon and a partner University in Portugal. Under the Affiliated Ph.D. Program students will be hosted exclusively at a Portuguese University, with a research period at Carnegie Mellon up to 1 year. CMU Portugal also hosts diverse funding instruments for research projects through which Ph.D. candidates are supported at several Portuguese universities. These students conduct their thesis within the researcher topics close to the CMU Portugal action areas and often in collaboration with CMU researchers.
