Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar (CMU-Q), a Qatar Foundation partner university, welcomed the batch of 2025 with Marhaba Tartans, by conducting online sessions to introduce new students to the university.
In a statement made by CMU-Q, it said the students that received their admission in different classes comes from 90 high schools across 43 countries.
Michael Trick, dean of CMU-Q, welcomed the new students as he said: “I want to commend each and every member of the Class of 2025. This was our most competitive year for applications in CMU-Q history. Each of you has worked hard, shown us that you are curious, driven and creative, and earned a spot in this new class. Congratulations.”
The statement also highlighted that the applications to CMU-Q increased by 30% in 2021. Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar provides four undergraduate programmes in biological sciences, business administration, computer science and information systems.
Trick reassured the admitted students that they were chosen for their whole application, and not just their grades: “While we know you are very strong academically, we chose you because of your enthusiasm, thoughtfulness and creativity.”
Along with their current coursework, CMU-Q students have various opportunities to enhance and progress their own student experience. During the course of four years at the university, students can join clubs to cultivate special interests like sports or culture, pursue research or internship opportunities, or take part in a wide variety of community-building activities.
As the Class of 2021 concludes their course in May, CMU-Q's graduate network will expand to over 1,000 alumni.
