New academic year sees highest enrollment at Carnegie Mellon Qatar
Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar (CMU-Q), a Qatar Foundation partner university, has enrolled the highest number of students in campus history. There are 467 students from 60 nations registered at CMU-Q for the 2022-23 academic year.
Michael Trick, dean of CMU-Q, said: “We have an exceptional partner in Qatar Foundation, who helps make a Carnegie Mellon education in Qatar possible for talented and motivated students from Qatar and around the world.”
The incoming class includes 119 students who are beginning their studies in one of four programs: biological sciences, business administration, computer science, or information systems.
With in-person classes back in session, Trick has noticed an unmistakable energy at CMU-Q. “This is the largest student body we have ever had, and I am delighted to see the enthusiasm and dedication to learning. I wish each student a wonderful, enriching university experience this year.”
CMU-Q opened its doors in 2004 with only 41 students in two programs of study. With 15 graduating classes, the total number of alumni is now more than 1100.
