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.”
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.
