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. Our inaugural 2012 edition brought together the cross-disciplinary synergies across 1000s of miles from their home campuses. We have more in store as more institutions join in to dive deeper into history & archaeology, commerce, and even law.

Technology, entertainment, and design branch out & will truly converge in a very unique cross-disciplinary way that will lend light to many things around us.
