The Carnegie Mellon education begins with a broad introduction to the liberal arts and sciences during the first semesters, a focus on major core classes in the middle semesters, and deepening and broadening of scope in the last semesters through advanced electives. Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar uses this approach in five undergraduate disciplines.
Undergraduate degree programs at CMU-Q
Biological Sciences has a core curriculum of biology, chemistry, computer science, mathematics and physics. Electives in diverse fields allow students to pursue their own unique interests and goals.
Business Administration emphasizes a quantitative, analytical approach to the fundamentals of management science. Electives in both business and the liberal arts provide a balanced, well-rounded education.
Computational Biology is an emerging field that applies computational tools to complex biological problems. This highly selective program is open to students in biological sciences or computer science.
Computer Science provides students with the core skills of mathematical reasoning, algorithmic thinking, and programming. A minor in a second subject offers students unparalleled flexibility to pursue their goals.
Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar fosters an energetic and innovative research environment for faculty, staff and students.
CMU-Q students in every program take part in undergraduate research, working with faculty on large-scale projects, participating in structured programs, and undertaking their own projects.
Most faculty members contribute to the CMU-Q body of work through studies funded by the Qatar National Research fund (QNRF) and internal seed research funds.
