JIE and JRI are partnerships between
Sun Yat-sen University (SYSU) and
Carnegie Mellon University (CMU).
Both are international research and teaching institutes.
JIE offers single-degree and double-degree PhD programs.
The single-degree option is a PhD program at SYSU, Guangzhou, China.
The double-degree option is a PhD program, which delivers two PhD diplomas,
one from SYSU and one from CMU. A double-degree PhD student usually spends
the first year at SYSU, China, the second at CMU, USA, the third and fourth at SYSU
and the last year at CMU
(with possibility of OPT).
It is a fantastic opportunity to experience two different international research environments.
