Meeting of
the Minds.

Welcome to the digital Meeting of the Minds, an online showcase of student research at Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar. We encourage you to explore the projects our students completed during the 2020-21 academic year: filter by research area, learn more about the faculty advisers, read the posters and abstracts, and hear from the students directly through brief presentation videos.

Student research at CMU-Q

Research is part of the fabric of a Carnegie Mellon education: undergraduates are encouraged to explore new ideas, test hypotheses and share results with the community. Research is work that matters.

Students undertake senior thesis projects, pursue independent studies guided by faculty mentors, initiate their own projects, and partake in summer research programs within Carnegie Mellon University and Education City.

Who are CMU-Q students?

Our students major in one of four disciplines: biological sciences, business administration, computer science or information systems. They are analytical, creative, and hard-working. They are problem-solvers. They know how to work in teams and they know how to adapt.


Let’s talk.
