Carnegie Mellon Offers Dual Ph.D. Program with University in Singapore

Carnegie Mellon and Singapore's Nanyang Technological University (NTU) have established a dual Ph.D. program in engineering. Candidates who successfully meet the academic requirements of both NTU and CMU will be awarded doctoral degrees by both universities. Students will spend at least two academic years at NTU and another two academic years at CMU with a co-adviser from each university to guide them in their research.

"We are delighted that Carnegie Mellon's Mechanical Engineering Department will be involved with this innovative dual Ph.D. degree program with Nanyang Technological University," said President Jared L. Cohon. "Carnegie Mellon has a longstanding tradition of collaborating with top universities around the world to provide opportunities for our students to learn in competitive and entrepreneurial environments. This agreement will enable Ph.D. candidates, both in Pittsburgh and Singapore, to work with some of the top minds in a variety of academic disciplines.''
