Now in Africa, Carnegie Mellon is excited to be pioneering a culture of inspiring innovations that change the world

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. 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. Carnegie Mellon University is a private research university based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Carnegie Mellon has made a concerted effort to attract corporate research labs, offices, and partnerships to the Pittsburgh campus. Apple Inc., Intel, Google, Microsoft, Disney, IBM, General Motors, Bombardier Inc., Yahoo!, and the Rand Corporation have established a presence on or near campus.
