Howard University and Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh have announced a new partnership that covers a wide range of initiatives between the two institutions, including a program that will allow engineering students to earn a doctoral degree from both schools.

Interested students will have to apply and be accepted to doctoral programs in engineering at each school, where they will spend at least three academic semesters. Participating students, who will be required to write and defend one dissertation, will have access to program advisers on each campus as well as a larger number of courses, research facilities and a wider research community in both Pittsburgh and D.C.

“The clear opportunities presented by this new partnership constitute yet another outstanding example of what we can and will continue to accomplish as a college,” said Achille Messac, dean of Howard’s College of Engineering and Architecture.
