Meeting of the Minds

Meeting of the Minds is an annual symposium at Carnegie Mellon University that gives students an opportunity to present their research and project work to a wide audience of faculty, fellow students, family members, industry representatives and the larger community. Through this experience, students learn how to bridge the gap between conducting research and presenting it to a wider audience.

Due to the pandemic, we have moved Meeting of the Minds online. We encourage you to explore our students’ work and learn more about their research.

Special thanks
For many years, Meeting of the Minds has had the enthusiastic support from several organizations in Qatar. In particular, we would like to offer our sincerest appreciation to QNRF and the Planning and Statistics Authority for their ongoing dedication to undergraduate research.

Most faculty members contribute to the CMU-Q body of work through studies funded by Qatar National Research Fund, as well as internal seed research funds.
