The CMU Portugal Program was part of two sessions promoted by the Luso-American Development Foundation (FLAD) – on February 18th in Porto and 19th at Universidade do Minho – addressed to all those interested in undertaking a period of academic training in the United States. The CMU Portugal Program, represented by the Program’s Executive director, Sílvia Castro and Education officer, João Fumega, presented the current training opportunities at Carnegie Mellon University under the scope of the CMU Portugal Program.
Currently, the CMU Portugal Program has two regular initiatives for students that wish to go to Pittsburgh: the Visiting Students Program and Dual Degree Ph.D. Programs. The visiting students’ initiative is an intensive 6 months research experience for talented master students that want to spend a semester at CMU to develop their thesis. While the Dual Degree Ph.D. Programs, launched every year, are designated for students that wish to enroll in a 5 years Ph.D., which includes a 3 years in a Portuguese University and 2 years at CMU with scholarships available to qualified candidates.
Furthermore, CMU Portugal will launch 15+ projects in 2020 (Large scale and exploratory projects) that will offer plenty of new opportunities to work in straight collaboration with top research groups and ICT companies in Portugal and across 7 CMU departments.
Both sessions included representatives from other international Programs that support academic initiatives for students who want to to have an experience at an American university.
