Living and Working in Qatar

City of Qatar Qatar has risen from the sands of its Bedouin pearl-diving lineage to become the richest country on the globe per capita. Rather than resting on its laurels, Qatar has been meticulously structuring and planning for its rapid growth. The Al-Thani royal family – Monarchial rulers of Qatar – has created a strong and well-defined National Vision 2030 to manage massive urban development, population growth and economic footing by investing in its people. The foundation of this plan is education.

In 2001, the Middle East State of Qatar recognized College of the North Atlantic’s (CNA) decades of expertise in post-secondary education when it chose CNA to build and administrate its first comprehensive college of technology in its capital city of Doha. Since then, College of the North Atlantic-Qatar (CNA-Q) has established its place as the premier institute of applied learning in the Middle East, working with Qatar to make educational history and create a vibrant future for its people.

The 2012-2013 Academic Year at CNA-Q saw a celebration of the 10-year milestone with Qatar. Since opening its doors in 2002, College of the North Atlantic-Qatar has gone from initial student enrollment of 300 to 3,000, from a staff complement of 50 to well over 600 and expanded to add a number of programs custom designed for the needs of the State. We consistently recruit throughout the country to find dedicated and energetic Canadians to help us continue in operating the highest quality technical education system in the Middle East.
Exciting, challenging and rewarding, CNA-Q is offering the personal and professional experience of a lifetime!
