Graduating students present research projects at College Honors 2022

Nine student researchers from three academic programs presented their final projects at College Honors 2022. The students are all members of Class of 2022 at Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar (CMU-Q), a Qatar Foundation partner university.

As part of their College Honors requirements, students must conduct research under the guidance of a faculty advisor, complete a senior honors thesis, and present the findings to a panel of faculty members. This year, students from biological sciences, business administration, and computer science are vying for College Honors.

Michael Trick, dean of CMU-Q, congratulated the students: “These presentations are the culmination of tremendous time, hard work, and critical thinking. The students presenting College Honors have shown impressive dedication, focus and tenacity, and all of us at CMU-Q are very proud of their achievements.”

The student researchers also presented their projects at Meeting of the Minds 2022, a research symposium for CMU-Q students.
