CMU Portugal Students meet for Ice Cream Social

On June 27th, the CMU Portugal Program at CMU hosted an Ice Cream Social for students currently studying in Pittsburgh. This event was an opportunity for the students to have a break from their studies and the heat. The attending students included Dual-Degree Ph. D.s and Affiliated Ph. D.s from the Human-Computer Interaction Institute (HCII), Software and Societal Systems (S3D), Software Engineering (SE), Engineering and Public Policy (EPP), and Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE). 

The Program currently has 16 active students who are expected to be at Carnegie Mellon starting in the Fall semester, and anticipates 18 visiting students and faculty later this year. The Visitors will span across 9 CMU departments, including those from the Heinz College, Mathematical Sciences, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Robotics, Computer Science, Human-Computer Interaction, Language Technologies, Biomedical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. 

In 2024, 7 new Dual Degree students and 12 new Affiliated Ph.D. students will join the Program and will soon be able to spend time at CMU.
