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
Key personnel from CMU involved in the program are David
Koopman, Bruce Krogh, Roy Maxion, Priya Narasimhan, Raj Rajkumar, Mike
Reiter, and Jeannette Wing.
The CMU programs featured in the initiative are: Master of
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.
