Off to Pittsburgh

Posted 6th September 2018

A record number of Carnegie Mellon University Australia students have embarked on a unique exchange program to the United States of America.

Last month, 11 students embarked on their exchange for the Fall semester where they will undertake courses specific to the Pittsburgh campus and broaden their international study experience.

Each year students studying at Carnegie Mellon University’s Adelaide campus have the option of taking an exchange semester to the University’s Pittsburgh campus.

The program allows students studying in Adelaide to take classes in Pittsburgh that are not offered in Australia with many taking courses at CMU’s renown School of Computer Science School the Tepper School of Business.

In total nine students from the Masters of Science in Information Technology degree and two from the Master of Science in Public Policy and Management degree are in Pittsburgh until the end of 2018. They will then all return to Adelaide for their final semester of study to undertake their internship.

Only students enrolled in the 21-month MSIT and MSPPM programs may participate in the exchange program for one semester but must spend their first and last semesters in Adelaide.
