Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar

LAS building Carnegie Mellon University is internationally recognized as one of the leading institutions of research and higher education in Computer Science. In 2004, the university established a branch campus in Qatar with the goal of promoting the same high standards of research and education as its original campus in Pittsburgh, USA. Carnegie Mellon Qatar is located in Education City (see map), a 2,500 acre campus which currently hosts branches of five of the world's leading universities.
