Carnegie Mellon ranks second for US undergraduate computer science
Doha, Qatar: Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) was ranked second for US undergraduate computer science programs by US News & World Report, a leader in educational analysis and rankings. Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar, a partner university of Qatar Foundation (QF), has taught the top-ranked computer science program since opening its doors in 2004.
Michael Trick, dean of CMU-Q, said: “Computer science education is an important focus for Carnegie Mellon, and for our campus in Qatar. Our students can attest that this is a rigorous program, but over four years of study, they acquire the fundamental skills to develop new technologies and shape the frontiers of computing.”
As a world leader in education, CMU is known for its creativity and collaboration. CMU has been home to some of the world’s most innovative thinkers, including 20 Nobel Prize winners and 13 Turing Award winners. Graduates of CMU-Q’s Computer Science Program now work at top organizations in Qatar and around the world.
This is the first time that US News & World Report has ranked undergraduate computer science programs.
