著名美国研究大学在卢旺达建设新校区

This fall, students in Rwanda will begin classes at Carnegie Mellon University's Kigali campus when the U.S. research university opens its new graduate program in the East African country.

Bruce Krogh, Director of Carnegie Mellon in Rwanda, said the Master of Science in Information Technology graduate program is a perfect fit for the Rwandan government's 2020 vision to become an information economy – and he added Africa as a whole is ripe with opportunity in the mobile communications arena for cloud computing, broadband and more.

"We see this as an opportunity to participate in probably the fastest growing component of the market for information and communication technology in the world right now."

Krogh added the program will include a research incubator, executive training and a mobile research center that will focus on developing technologies that serve the Rwandan market.

"This is one of the things that excites me the most about the program.....by opening a campus in Rwanda we are going to have a whole cadre of students that are focused entirely on that environment and on the needs in that part of the country."

Carnegie Mellon has been working with the Rwandan government for three years to develop the program. Despite international criticism of the Rwandan government's clampdown on free speech, Krogh said the university will be able to work as it does in the United States.

"And a critical component of the contract and the agreement that we have with the government is that our operation is going to enjoy all of the freedoms of intellectual pursuit and also control of admission and everything else that we have at all of our campuses."

The university will offer a master of science in information technology beginning this August and plans to offer a Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering within two years. Krogh said they have planned for 40 students in the first semester.

这个秋天, 当美国研究大学在这个非洲东部国家开设新的毕业课程后,在卢旺达的学生将开始在卡内基梅隆大学的基加利校区上课。

布鲁斯•克拉夫是卢旺达卡内基•梅隆大学的校长,他表示信息技术毕业课程的理学硕士对于卢旺达政府预计到2020年发展成为信息经济来说是完美组合——他还补充道这是在移动通信领域的云计算、宽带及更多方面对于非洲来说是绝佳的机会。

“我们认为现在这是一个加入到可能增长最快的世界上信息和通讯技术市场的机会。”
克拉夫补充说该计划将包括一个研究平台、执行培训及一个移动研究中心,将重点放在开发为卢旺达市场服务的技术上。

“这是有关这个项目最令我兴奋的事之一,在卢旺达开设校园将会为我们带来有很多沉浸在这种氛围中及国家需要的学生。”

卡内基梅隆同卢旺达政府开展这一项目已有3年。尽管国际社会批判卢旺达政府打击言论自由,但克拉夫表示学校会像在美国一样履行它应有的职能。

“我们与政府的合同及协议的的一个关键组成部分就是我们的操作是去享受追求所有的自由知识,控制入学及已经在我们的校园里有的一切。”

大学今年8月将提供信息技术理学硕士,还计划在未来的2年内提供电子与计算机工程理学硕士。克拉夫表示预计在第1学期将有40名学生。
