I love this University. First off, I made a decision to get my degree and didn’t know much about CMUQ coming from the New York. I have learned a lot from my studies here, grown as an individual and professional and overall am a better person because of this school and program. It is a well respected, well rounded University and I have nothing but good things to say about it. Oh and a big shout out to my fave professor, Terrance Murphy – kudos!Almost a Vanderbilt May, 2011
My second home. I love you. Endless nights spent here. Most of the students are really nice kids with a lot of creativity behind them. It’s good to see CMUQ earning a spot among the Middle East’s top universities. Its reputation will definitely help us when it comes time to start applying for jobs!Mudassir April, 2011
Having recently moved from Houston, I have come to appreciate the finer things in Doha. For me, CMU-Qatar is superior to most colleges in the Middle East for 2 reasons:
a) It has an amazing diversity of students from all over the world, some with exceptional IQ
b) Although it offers various programs, I admire their dedicated focus on innovation & engineering.
For someone like myself who intends to work for NASA, CMUQ seems to be my best choice of getting there.
If you get a scholarship to study here, you’re probably one of the luckiest people on earth. Although their tuition fees could be high, they’re well justified for what CMU Qatar offers. This is a place where students from the entire region come to put on their thinking caps and image, innovate and create. I have another two years to go, but have grown to love this place. Have made lots of amazing friends here. They have a terrific panel of professors, ones who appreciate inquiry, questioning and encourage two-way dialogue. Bravo CMUQ!!!Haroon January, 2011
I love this University. First off, I made a decision to get my degree and didn’t know much about CMUQ coming from the UK. I have learned a lot from my studies here, grown as an individual and professional and overall am a better person because of this school and program. Yes it is expensive, but in this day and age going to Carnegie Mellon is as good a guarantee for future career prospects as its every going to get. It is a well respected, well rounded University and I have nothing but great things to say about it.Sibby December, 2010
When my dad and I toured CMU Qatar, the campus was huge! It had a total college town feel, and as a newly settled expat in Doha, it seemed like the perfect place to spend entire days at. For me, the qualities of CMUQ that really stand out are their strong focus on technology and innovation. You’re constantly surrounded by geniuses – students & faculty – their drive & passion definitely rubs off on you. You cant help but excel here. Love this place.GS October, 2010
CMQ made me become more outgoing and it thought me how to take care of myself, and it thought me how to learn. Although its my last year, I continue to meet great friends here. If you want a composed, idealic campus, warm and fuzzy marketing, and hand holding, don’t go here. If you want to learn, expose yourself to all different types of people and cultures, and basically grow up, this is the place for you. Its one of those rare places where once you’re in, seldom do you ever want to leave.Rebecca August, 2010
I’m attending CMU and I love it! The students are great and the professors are excellent. Great way to network also. I have just started the program and it has opened many new doors for me! In fact, I just landed a new position with a great company in Doha. I dont think there is any other college in the region with so much emphasis on innovation and creativity.Younus March, 2010
This was my alma mater for undergrad, and if I had to do it all over again, I’d still come here! With a beautiful campus and grassy quad in the middle of Doha? Yes, yes, and yes! I love how they nurture innovation and creative thinking.Craig February, 2010
