Carnegie Mellon and Warwick University create union worth £6 millionBy Editor
A Memorandum of Understanding has been drawn up between the University of Warwick and Carnegie Mellon University in a bid to start ball rolling on a joint research and education initiative.
According to the Warwick University, the two institutions aim to collaborate on “research and teaching in data acquisition, analysis and processing for next generation applications.”
The Memorandum was signed on Tuesday 15th July when Carnegie Mellon University president, Dr Subra Suresh, received a honourary in science.
Speaking of Suresh, Lord Bhattacharyya of the Warwick Manufacturing Group said:
“Dr Subra Suresh is one of the world’s top materials scientists, a highly cited scholar who is one of the few living Americans to be elected a member of all three branches of the United States National Academies, in recognition of his pioneering contributions to engineering, sciences and medicine.”

The coming together of the institutions will amalgamate CMU’s deftness in ‘autonomous systems, higher security, digital healthcare, machine learning and sensing and data processing’ with Warwick’s facilities in ‘cyber security, energy storage, materials and surfaces and robotics’.
Additionally, the £6 million project will also focus on “energy, innovative manufacturing, materials, science, and technology for health and sustainable cities”.
