The Education City: An Investment in the Future of the Region

The Education City, a 2,400-acre complex in Doha, Qatar, was founded in 1997 by Her Highness Sheikha Mouzah Bint Nasser Al Missnet, Consort of His Highness, the Emir.

The Education City’s state-of-the-art facilities and forward-thinking philosophies are enticing some of the world’s top universities to open branch campuses here. Carnegie Mellon University’s Computer Science and Business undergraduate degree programs join the Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar and VCU-Qatar College of Design Arts.

The mission of the Education City is clearly defined: to prepare world-class graduates capable of assuming responsible and high-ranking professional and leadership positions throughout Qatar and the region. The Education City fosters independent thinking, creative problem solving and effective communication skills in service to its commitment to academic excellence and personal integrity.
