Our home in Education City

NU-Q is part of Education City, a global gathering place for artists and scientists, entrepreneurs and educators, researchers and innovators.

We are one of six U.S. schools selected to join Education City. This initiative is part of a wider investment agenda by the Qatar Foundation to bring world-class higher education to the country and to enable its transition to a knowledge-based economy.
