February 22, 2010

Carnegie Mellon honors the graduates of the programs in Portugal, including the INI students in the Lisbon Master of Science in Information Technology-Information Security program and the Aveiro Master of Science in Information Networking program. The CMU.EDU homepage describes the ceremony taking place today in Portugal. An excerpt follows with a link to the Carnegie Mellon article:

Tiago Carvalho (INI, MS19), who obtained a Master of Science in Information Security will be among the 60 newly minted scholars of the Carnegie Mellon | Portugal program being honored today at a graduation ceremony in Portugal from the Universidade de Aveiro, the Universidade de Coimbra, the Universidade de Lisboa, the Universidade da Madeira and Carnegie Mellon University.

"It was a terrific experience and a huge opportunity," Carvalho said. "Among the best experiences was the chance of getting to know two very different environments with different teaching cultures, and different strengths."

The dual degree program, which began in 2006, brings together Carnegie Mellon, nine Portuguese universities and several Portuguese companies and research institutes to create new innovation networks around focused areas of information and communication technologies. Carnegie Mellon President Jared L. Cohon said that he is looking forward to the diploma ceremony for students graduating from the joint program in Portugal.

"We at Carnegie Mellon are pleased and proud of the great progress we have made in Portugal. We have forged strong partnerships and established world-class educational and research programs, which are already contributing to Portugal's progress. There is no better indication of our success than the new graduates from our joint programs," Cohon said.
