Qatar University has grown and progressed significantly since 1979, gaining a wealth of academic, research and institutional accomplishments that have served to position us as an effective partner in the Qatari society and one of the leading universities in the region. QU is further growing in international reputation as evidenced by our ranking of 11th among 100 universities in the MENA region. Added to this, is a growing number of highly-popular specialist Masters and PhD programs, multiple significant research successes, an ambitious research roadmap fielding national development priorities, and a large body of talented sought-after graduates. We also boast a large portfolio of internationally-accredited colleges and programs that attest to a high level of excellence and quality. We continue to be proud of our close relationship with the public and private sector that has launched a number of MOUs and collaborative agreements that benefit our students, faculty, and the institution as a whole. These agreements have themselves engendered a number of Professional Chair positions that serve to build on our research objectives, invigorate students’ learning by doing, and further expand partnerships with leading organizations in Qatar and beyond.
