Year: Sophomore

I chose this major because... it combines all my interest in math and the sciences. I find the field exciting because it has unlimited potential and I am hopeful to be a part of the future.

Favorite Course(s): CI102 & 103 Computing and Informatics Design II and III - This was my first time working on a team to create a mobile application. I found the experience rewarding as teamwork is an integral part of the field. This experience was unique to me, and I will be applying the knowledge I learned in the work field.

Co-ops I've done:

  • I have yet to complete a co-op but I am excited for the opportunities that await.

Favorite thing/place at Drexel: Drexel Recreation Center. I come here a lot during the week to relieve stress either by working out or playing basketball.

When I'm not at Drexel, I'm... Playing videos games at my home.

When you are in Philadelphia, I think you should... Drexel Recreation Center. I come here a lot during the week to relieve stress either by working out or playing basketball.

Advice to new/incoming CCI students: Don't be quick to judge. Keep an open mind when meeting new people and getting involved on campus. Try to do things out of your comfort zone, it is the only way to truly discover things you enjoy on campus.

What is your dream job? Becoming a Software Engineer at a Big Tech company.

Favorite Animated Character: Meruem from Hunter x Hunter

Bio

Hi, my name is Ibrahim. I grew up in the suburbs up Philadelphia. I am currently a sophomore majoring in Computer Science. Two of my favorite things to do in life are playing basketball and video games. When I was younger, I played video games competitively. Playing a lot of online tournaments for NBA2k or Call of Duty. As I grew older, I lost the same passion I had for video games and gained an interest in Basketball. You will often see me at Drexel Recreation Center. If you ever want to play sometime let me know.
