Carnegie Mellon in the heart of the Middle East
For more than a century, Carnegie Mellon University has challenged the curious and passionate to imagine and deliver work that matters. A private, top-ranked and global university, Carnegie Mellon sets its own course with programs that inspire creativity and collaboration.
In 2004, Carnegie Mellon and Qatar Foundation began a partnership to deliver select programs that will contribute to the long-term development of Qatar. Our campus brings together the best of both worlds – CMU’s creative, visionary approach and Qatar’s drive for knowledge and advancement. Today, Carnegie Mellon Qatar offers undergraduate programs in biological sciences, business administration, computer science, and information systems. More than 470 students from 61 countries call Carnegie Mellon Qatar home.
Qatar Foundation (QF) is a not-for-profit organization where centers and programs focused on education, research and innovation, and community development intertwine for the benefit of Qatar, and the world.
QF’s unique ecosystem, which is supported by partnerships with leading international institutions, addresses Qatar’s most pressing challenges, creates local, regional, and global impact, and empowers people to shape both the present and the future.Learn More about Qatar Foundation
