WHAT IS THE EXACT TIMELINE OF THE AiCE PROGRAM?

The B.Eng. in AiCE is a four-year program. Students will spend their four years at CMKL, Thailand. However, they will have opportunity to participate in CMU Undergraduate Exchange Program during their 2nd or/and 3rd year, a chance to study in prestigious undergraduate classes at Carnegie Mellon University - Pittsburgh, PA, USA  for 1-2 semesters (limited for 10 students per academic year).

Importantly, The three-year accelerated study plan is also available. It is a unique opportunity to complete AiCE undergraduate study in a shorter time frame. An accelerated study plan for students wishing to complete a baccalaureate degree in three years.
Pre-matriculant credits (such as Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, or college credits earned during high school)  prior to the start of undergraduate study is highly desirable. Graduating early translates into reduced costs, entering the job market sooner or moving on to graduate school earlier, if desired.
