Dual degree Ph.D. Programs

ICTI offers, supported by the Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT), some of the top Ph.D. programs in information and communication technologies. Upon program completion, students receive a degree from Carnegie Mellon University and the partner university in Portugal. With dual-international graduate credentials, graduates are in an excellent position to build their careers.

Although program instruction is based both in Portugal and at Carnegie Mellon, all instruction is in English – it is not mandatory for students to speak Portuguese.

Scholarships and fellowships are available on a competitive basis for many of the programs. Find out more information in the Admission and application process (pdf file).

Education activities and dual degree Ph.D. programs have a key strategic role in the Entrepreneurial Research Initiatives (ERIs).
