Major: BS Data Science, Mathematics

Year: Senior

Hometown: Mauritius

I chose this major because...  I have always been passionate about math, statistics and engineering. The fact that Data Science combines all of them gives me endless learning scopes. Its polyvalence eventually open doors to several unique professional opportunities in a wide array of fields. Math as a second major does not only add value to my Data Science degree but also allow me to learn its application in technology.

Favorite Course(s): CS 383 - Machine Learning, INFO 213 - Data Science Programming, INFO 310 with Dr Tim Gorichanaz

Clubs/Extracurricular Activities: Drexel Women In Computing Society, Society of Women Engineer, Drexel Muslim Students Association, Drexel Model United Nations, Google Women Techmakers

Co-ops I've done: MIS Business Analyst @ Ciright; Real World Data Project Manager @ Pfizer; Cyber Forensics & Data Intelligence Consultant @ PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC)

Favorite thing/place at Drexel: Working behind the scenes at CCI Commons

When I'm not at Drexel, I'm... At Fisher Fine Arts library which resembles Hogwarts, exploring Philly, trying out new food, at Schuylkill River Banks, baking from scratch, watching European football

When you are in Philadelphia, I think you should... Grab a sandwich from Saad's, visit Penn's landing, try to see the first ENIAC Computer at Penn Engineering

Advice to new/incoming CCI students: Create your own opportunities, network as much as you can, and take on leadership roles.

What is your dream job? CEO of my own data science consulting firm.

Favorite Animated Character: Hagrid from Harry Potter


Hi! I'm Muneera. I'm a 5th year Data Science and Math major with minors in Actuarial Science and Computing Technology. I am currently doing my third co-op at Pricewaterhouse(PwC). Outside of school, I like to bake (I opened a bakery when I was 15), read, play soccer, and try new food in downtown Philly. I'm a huge potterhead. Catch me geek out on Harry Potter (Gryffindor ftw).
