Dual PhD Degree Program with METU-Civil and Environmental Engineering - Carnegie Mellon University

Dual PhD Degree Program with METU

A memorandum of understanding (MOU) was signed by both CMU Provost and Senior Vice President Mark Kamlet and Middle East Technical University's (METU) President Ural Akbulut in 2008, reflecting a commitment of both universities to explore new research opportunities as well as the joint education program, which enables Ph.D. candidates at Carnegie Mellon and METU to earn a degree at each institution.

Candidates for the Dual Ph.D. Degree Program must:

  • apply and be admitted to both departments
  • create doctoral dissertations that satisfy a committee of faculty from both institutions
  • spend part of their time resident for a minimum of 2 years at each campus
  • pay tuition and fees to the institution at which they are resident (i.e. 2 or more years paid to METU and 2 or more years paid to CMU)

In order to apply, please visit the CMU CEE application web page or METU web site.
