A team of faculty and students from CMU-Q recently introduced ‘Alice Middle East,’ a 3-D interactive educational software designed to help primary and secondary school students learn the basics of computer programming and teach them how to apply logical thinking and problem solving techniques.
Impact of CMU-Q’s outreach programs continues to grow
Carnegie Mellon has always taken pride in leading outreach events that positively impact the local community. This tradition continues in Qatar with the steady growth of outreach programs that support the university’s ongoing commitment to the nation’s development.
In 1979, CMU established the first Robotics Institute in the United States. Since then, Carnegie Mellon has been a robotics pioneer, founding the discipline of Field Robotics, developing unmanned vehicles and leading the Tartan Racing Team to victory in the $2 million Urban Challenge robotic autonomous vehicles race.
