When classes are over, there is still so much to do at CMU-Q: student-led clubs, community events, and activities that will develop your skills and expand your horizons.
Each year, students form around 30 clubs that cater to a wide range of interests. Here’s a sampling of clubs from the 2022-23 year.
Academic clubs are an opportunity to explore your field of study beyond the classroom. Many clubs bring in outside speakers, including CMU-Q graduates, to share their experiences with students.
Carnegie Mellon Qatar works closely with organizations in government and industry to create meaningful internships where students can gain practical work skills. CMU-Q’s Career Development Office posts internships and connects qualified students with potential employers.
Many students choose to work on campus in a variety of different roles. The Academic Resource Center, for instance, is the largest employer of students on campus and employs undergraduates as course assistants during both academic semesters. Some of these positions may require undergoing additional training.
Career fairs and networking events
Throughout the year, CMU-Q holds events to introduce students to prospective employers. These events include information sessions, day-long workshops, networking sessions and career trips. CMU-Q also participates in the Education City Career Fair.
Job search and resume writing
CMU-Q provides many resources to help students learn practical job search skills. Through one-on-one consultation and group workshops, students are well-equipped to land the perfect internship, and eventually the perfect job.
QF Recreation Center
