Ph.D Partnership with A*STAR
The department currently collaborates with the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), on the A*STAR-CMU Partnership Ph.D. Programme (ACMP). This collaboration focuses on the areas of high performance computing and manufacturing, two important areas of research for both Carnegie Mellon and A*STAR. Memorandums of understanding were signed between the department and the two relevant A*STAR institutes, Institute of High Performance Computing (IHPC) and Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech).
ACMP is a four-year scholarship comprising approximately two years of Ph.D. studies at Carnegie Mellon, and two years at a relevant A*STAR Research Institute (RI) in Singapore. Ph.D. research training will be carried out under the joint supervision of a CMU Professor and a senior member of an A*STAR RI. Successful students will be awarded a Ph.D. degree by CMU. Specifics of the program are detailed on the A*STAR ACMP webpage.
