    University of Aveiro from Portugal in collaboration with Carnegie Mellon University from USA is teaming up to offer a Professional Master in Information Networking (MSIN) in Portugal.

    The Aveiro MSIN program builds upon students’ technical backgrounds to give them the broadened perspective and tactical expertise required to become leaders in the quickly developing field of information technology and information networking. Coursework takes place at the University of Aveiro and uses a hybrid distributed education format that combines locally taught courses with courses taught from Carnegie Mellon via video-conferencing technologies.

    The Program is a dual degree program, which allows the student to have a post-graduate diploma in Europe and a Professional Master degree in USA.

ICTI and the Carnegie Mellon-Portugal Program will involve professors, researchers and students from six colleges, eight departments, and six research centers and institutes at Carnegie Mellon and a large consortia of Portuguese research and education institutions, including 12 higher education institutions, four associate laboratories, one applied research institute and two governmental agencies.
