SYSU-CMU Joint Institute of Engineering, Pittsburgh USA + Guangzhou China -

The Joint Institute of Engineering (JIE) is a partnership between Sun
Yat-sen University in Guangzhou, China and Carnegie Mellon University in
Pittsburgh, USA. JIE takes a global approach to providing engineering
education at the graduate level, building upon the strengths of the two
universities. Students, pursuing the double-degree option at either the
masters or doctoral levels, will have the opportunity to study at both
institutions, enabling a rich experience in learning the cultures of China
and the United States of America.

JIE is seeking motivated students for open positions in both PhD & Masters
double-degree programs to conduct high quality research in the field of
High Speed & Large Scale Computer Vision for Autonomous Driving. Research
will focus fundamental research involving real-world problems. In
particular two important research questions:
1) How can we represent the information from image and LIDAR sensors in a
way that makes subsequent reasoning about real world content both efficient
and robust?
2) What learning methodologies allow us to make time constrained real world
scene understanding in a robust manner?

All graduates will receive OPT work authorization which provides the
opportunity for employment in the United States after graduation. In many
cases this leads to long term work opportunities in the United States or
globally with leading employers.

Ideal students will be self-motivated, engaged and willing to work hard in
exploring new problems. Strong problem solving and programming skills are a
must. Students should be able to communicate well in English and explain
their interests and motivations clearly.

Interested candidates should read the application information at jie.cmu.edu
and jie.sysu.edu.cn. Computer Vision and Robotics students should read
additional information on potential projects and instructions at
http://gary.overett.org/prospective-students/ and contact
goverett at andrew.cmu.edu with their interest before 13 December 2014.
