(UTC +3hrs)
Doha, Ad Dawḩah

Education City is home to the official undergraduate branch campuses of the following U.S colleges in Qatar: Virginia Commonwealth University, Weill Cornell Medical College, Texas A&M University, Carnegie Mellon University, Georgetown University, and Northwestern University. We hope to showcase how the presence of these institutions combined with those teaching and studying there have helped to propel them years ahead of their neighbors, while training a new generation of leaders bred on foreign soil.

Technology, entertainment, and design will truly converge in a very unique cross-disciplinary way that will lend light to many things around us in Qatar and the wider Middle East region.
