Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, announced that earlier this month it awarded its 100th degree at its satellite campus in Kigali, Rwanda. This year, 33 students from Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda earned master’s degrees in electrical and computer engineering and information and communication technology. It was the fourth commencement ceremony for Carnegie Mellon University Africa.
James H. Garrett Jr, dean of the College of Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, told the graduates: “Don’t be afraid to stretch beyond your comfort zone to participate in the transformation underway throughout this continent. Live in the present. Be in the moment. The opportunity in Africa is now.
