First students of the Class of 2028 celebrate at CMU-Q campus
Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar (CMU-Q) welcomed 29 students to the CMU-Q community at a celebration in the Education City building. The students were admitted to the new class through Early Decision, an opportunity for students whose first choice of universities is CMU-Q to apply and be accepted during the first semester of their last year of high school.
The students will begin their studies in August 2024, along with the admitted students from the regular decision application. CMU-Q is a Qatar Foundation partner university.
Dean Michael Trick welcomed the new students and their families to the CMU-Q campus: “Students, you will become very familiar with this place over the next four years. You will attend classes here, you will study, and you will take part in community events. You will learn and grow in this building, and these walls will become your second home. Welcome.”
There are 11 Qatari citizens among the Early Decision students. The students come from 20 high schools, with the two largest contingents hailing from Qatar Science and Technology School for Boys and Qatar Academy.
Decisions for the regular admission process will be released at the beginning of April. Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar offers undergraduate degree programs in biological sciences, business administration, computer science, and information systems.
