Carnegie Mellon University Africa
With a century-long history that has hosted 19 Nobel Laureates, Carnegie Mellon University is renowned as one of the worlds leading engineering institutions. We have played critical roles on breakthroughs in areas such as artificial intelligence, driverless cars and WiFi.
Carnegie Mellon University recently extended its global reach into Africa with its Center of Excellence in Information and Communication Technology. Focused on one of the fastest growing economic regions of the world, the Center of Excellence is creating a new generation of graduates able to take advantage of Africa’s unique opportunities.
Based in Rwanda, the Center of Excellence benefits from the country’s bold ICT strategy and our own culture of innovation to provide a platform for students to become technology thought leaders in emerging markets. Masters’ degrees from Carnegie Mellon University are awarded in two comprehensive programmes, each taught by globally renowned faculty to the same rigorous standards as the main Pittsburgh campus.
The Master of Science in Information Technology provides students with critical skills, focusing on practical applications in areas such as cyber security, mobile applications, wireless networking and strategic business planning. In internships and practicums, students get the opportunity to develop real-world ICT solutions with international companies like IBM, Microsoft and Visa.
The Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering has a more technically focused curriculum, equipping students with skills in energy systems, mobile computing and telecommunications.
Our programs provide a unique opportunity for students to gain a balanced international perspective with an option to spend semesters at Carnegie Mellon’s Pittsburgh and Silicon Valley campuses.
Carnegie Mellon’s academic programs extend across countries and continents. They are rooted in an academic philosophy that develops our students into the responsible global leaders.
Now in Africa, Carnegie Mellon is excited to be pioneering a culture of inspiring innovations that change the world.
