Doha, Feb 9, 2024: The Texas A&M University will shut down its campus in Qatar by 2028. The decision was made by the Board of Regents of Texas A&M University.  

Qatar Foundation has said that it will ensure continuity of education for current students from Texas A&M University at Qatar (TAMUQ) and the continuation of engineering studies at its Education City campus. 

With the decision to shut down the campus, the partnership between Texas A&M University and Qatar Foundation will also come to an end. 

The Doha-based campus, which has graduated more than 1,500 engineers, will be shutting down after 20 plus years. 

Texas A&M at Qatar (TAMUQ) opened in 2003 to advance education and research in chemical, mechanical, and petroleum engineering. TAMUQ is one of six U.S. universities in Qatar’s Education City. 

The process and timescale for formally concluding the partnership between QF and Texas A&M University is now under discussion.
