Professor Tony Lattanze recently traveled to Chennai, India to visit with our partner institution, SRM University.

SRM is one of India’s premier institutions for technical instruction; regularly ranking among its best engineer schools. Working with the MSE Programs, the SRM-CMU venture offers students the opportunity to pursue a Masters of Information Technology – Embedded Software Engineering (MSIT-ESE) degree. Using the MSE’s highly successful model of joint education, the program has students completing the MSIT-ESE core coursework – taught by CMU-trained SRM faculty – in Chennai ahead of two semesters of study onsite in Pittsburgh.

This trip saw Tony meeting with key faculty and administrators at SRM as well as current MSIT-ESE students. But it also included a press conference regarding the collaborative program and numerous lectures at corporate and educational institutions, including Scoregetter and Princeton Consultancies, Tata Consulting Services, Cognizant Technology Solutions, and Saveetha University.

The program thanks all of our gracious hosts in Chennai and looks forward to the continuation of this exciting venture.
