CMU pole activities

On the CMU side, this initiative draws mainly from programs and faculty from both the College of Engineering (CE), and the School of Computer Science (SCS), namely the Departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering (CE-ECE) and the Department of Computer Science (SCS-CS).

Key personnel from CMU involved in the program are David Garlan, Phil Koopman, Bruce Krogh, Roy Maxion, Priya Narasimhan, Raj Rajkumar, Mike Reiter, and Jeannette Wing.

The CMU programs featured in the initiative are: Master of Science in Information Technology - Information Security (MSIT-IS); Carnegie Mellon PhD degree-granting program.

INI's MSIT-IS is believed to constitute an excellent means of fulfilling the objectives established above: train young graduates and professionals, with a slant to the Portuguese ICT circuit, including personnel from institutions affiliated with FCUL or participating to the CMU-Portugal project as a whole, in the area of information security and its applications.

The Carnegie Mellon PhD degree-granting program constitutes an opportunity to confer the seal of outstanding quality of the CMU departments involved (CE-ECE and SCS-CS) to a set of high-quality students and demanding thesis research programs. This activity is expected to attract a critical mass of very high-quality candidates not only from Portugal but also from other European countries.
