The Nanjing University of Science and Technology's School of Computer Science and Technology and Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Institute have signed a memorandum of understanding to offer a double-degree master's program in engineering and robotics technology. It is the only master's level program that the Robotics Institute offers in partnership with a Chinese university.
The joint program, which began in the fall semester of 2010, is designed to train future leaders in robotics and intelligent automation. Participants learn the principles and practices of robotics and automation science, as well as those of engineering, software engineering, and management.
Students admitted to the NUST graduate school may apply for the NUST/Carnegie Mellon Double Degree Program. Students accepted to the program will begin their studies at NUST and complete their course work at Carnegie Mellon. Students who successfully complete the program will be awarded two degrees: a Master of Engineering in Pattern Recognition and Intelligent System from NUST and a Master of Science in Robotics Technology from Carnegie Mellon.
NUST's School of Computer Science and Technology (SCST) is one of the excellent institutions for computer science research and education in China. NUST’s SCST was ranked at No.1 in the direction of Pattern Recognition and Intelligent Systems in graduate education of China.
Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) is a private research university in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania USA, which was ranked among the top world universities. The Robotics Institute (RI) is a division of Carnegie Mellon’s School of Computer Science and is one of the world's leading centers of robotics research and education.
