This morning at Kigali Marriott Hotel, the Rwandan Minister of Education Dr. Valentine Uwamariya joined Carnegie Mellon University Africa to celebrate its 9th graduation ceremony, honoring the classes of 2020, 2021, and 2022.
In 2011, Carnegie Mellon University Africa started in Rwanda following the agreement between Rwanda and Carnegie Mellon University to respond to the critical shortage of high-quality engineering talent required to harness Africa’s tremendous potential as home to the fastest-growing workforce in the world.
Carnegie Mellon University offers master’s degrees in Information Technology, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Engineering in AI. Its presence in Rwanda provides a platform to engage in Africa’s most significant opportunities and challenges through world-class education and relevant research. (End)
