Carnegie Mellon University receives $3.5 million from Bosch Group

“When we established the Carnegie Bosch Institute in 1990, we knew it was the start of something remarkable for international business,” Werner Struth, chairman of Robert Bosch LLC and member of the board of management of Robert Bosch GmbH, said in a statement. “The continued expansion of our partnership into research and development is a testament to the success and impact of bringing together industry and academia.” The gift from Bosch Group includes $2.5 million in support to establish the Bosch Distinguished Professor in Security and Privacy Technologies, which will be used to support the directorship of CMU’s CyLab. The company currently supports five faculty chairs in the Carnegie Bosch Institute.
