Making a difference
CMU-Africa students are trained in an African context, prepared to make a transformative difference in their communities and the world. Our alumni have made an incredible impact over the past decade, with 98% of employed graduates working in Africa in fields such as IoT, renewable energy, and cybersecurity.
CMU-Africa is about to enter its second decade. There are now more than 200 students on campus representing 21 different African nations. CMU-Africa could not have achieved this milestone without the strong support from our active alumni.
