I installed scimax on both linux and mac osx. And I am having the same issue for both. I start the emacs by executing the ./scimax script then I open example/cmu-qualifier.org file and try to export it by pressing C-c C-e j o. Finally, I expect to see an article with columns like in a scientific paper but what I see is a common export of org-mode to pdf.

Should I change the #+LATEX_CLASS: article to something else ?

The CMU qualifer does not look like an article with columns. It is a regular article class, with some customization for what the qualifier reports in chemical engineering at CMU are supposed to look like.
