Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar (CMU-Q), a Qatar Foundation partner university, started the fall 2020 semester with its highest enrollment numbers since opening its doors in 2004. There are 124 first-year students enrolled at CMU-Q representing 34 nationalities.

The CMU-Q student body is composed of 442 students representing 52 nations. More than 900 alumni have graduated from the Doha campus.

"The first-year students started university during a pandemic," said Michael Trick, dean of CMU-Q. "They are resilient and our community has come together to ensure that they are prepared, and feel supported in their academics and throughout their student experience."

Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar offers five programs: biological sciences, business administration, computational biology, computer science and information systems.
