Features Successful Alum at Graduation Ceremony

Event: Carnegie Mellon University's Information Networking Institute (INI) is scheduled to graduate 87 students in programs designed to lead the way in integrating technology, economics and the policies of secure communication networks.

Chinwe Abosi, who received her master's degree in information networking from Carnegie Mellon's program in Athens, Greece, in December 2006, will be the keynote speaker at the INI graduation. The Botswana scholar is a Ph.D. candidate at the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering at the University of Essex, United Kingdom.

"The INI programs are great because they provide such a diverse toolkit," said John Truelove, an INI senior majoring in information security and technology and management. "This degree really expanded my horizons and I've landed a fascinating job," said Truelove, a former software developer. The Boston-area scholar will begin work for MIT's Lincoln Labs later this summer.   

Established in 1989, the INI was the nation's first research and education center devoted to information networking, according to Dena Haritos Tsamitis, director of the INI and head of education training and outreach at Carnegie Mellon CyLab. The INI is a cooperative endeavor of the College of Engineering, the School of Computer Science, the Tepper School of Business and the H. John Heinz III College.

When: 6 p.m., Saturday, May 16.

Where: Rodef Shalom, 4905 Fifth Ave., Pittsburgh, Pa. 15213.
