Qatar Foundation vice chairperson and CEO HE Sheikha Hind bint Hamad al-Thani has met with senior figures from the home campuses of the organisation’s international partner universities, it was announced on Monday.
During her visit to the US, Sheikha Hind attended the President’s Council meeting in Washington DC, which brought together representatives from Hamad Bin Khalifa University - Qatar Foundation’s (QF) homegrown institute of higher education - and the international universities that have Doha-based branch campuses within QF’s unique environment of learning, Education City.
These universities equip students with the skills and knowledge for success in fields ranging from engineering, medicine, communications and international affairs to art and design, computer science, and executive education - all supporting Qatar’s vision for human, social and economic development, according to a statement.
Sheikha Hind also visited Carnegie Mellon University’s main campus in Pittsburgh, where she toured academic centres focused on entrepreneurship, innovation, teaching excellence and disruptive education models such as technology-enhanced learning.
While visiting the 120-year-old institution, Sheikha Hind participated in a roundtable discussion and demonstration session on Artificial Intelligence, automation, and machine learning with Carnegie Mellon University faculty.
