A research institute like no other, Carnegie Mellon is home to the world’s leading experts in a range of fields. In this tradition, Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar nurtures and develops opportunities for faculty members and students to build regionally relevant research programs in their areas of expertise.
The Year in Faculty Research
CMU-Q researchers are actively engaged with the international research community, leading or collaborating on a myriad of projects.

QNRF-funded Research Projects
Four information systems students are researching Qatar residents’ awareness and attitudes toward native wildlife species. The team of Reem Al-Haddad, Sara Al-Hemaidi, Amal Al-Korbi and Almayasa Al-Naimi, along with faculty advisors Jennifer Bruder and Lauren Burakowski, received a grant for the project from the QNRF’s Undergraduate Research Experience Program.
Meeting of the Minds
Since 2007, Meeting of the Minds has been an annual opportunity for students to present their research work to the community. With pandemic restrictions preventing an in-person event, CMU-Q created meetingminds.qatar.cmu.edu, a new digital channel for students to share their projects.
For more than a century, Carnegie Mellon University has challenged the curious and passionate to imagine and deliver work that matters. A private, top-ranked and global university, Carnegie Mellon sets its own course with programs that inspire creativity and collaboration.
In 2004, Carnegie Mellon and Qatar Foundation began a partnership to deliver select programs that will contribute to the long-term development of Qatar. Today, Carnegie Mellon Qatar offers undergraduate programs in biological sciences, business administration, computational biology, computer science, and information systems. More than 400 students from 52 countries call Carnegie Mellon Qatar home.
Graduates from CMU-Q are pursuing their careers in top organizations within Qatar and around the world, and many have started their own entrepreneurial ventures. With 13 graduating classes, the total number of alumni is nearly 1000.
