Hometown: Upper Darby, PA
I chose this major because…: I love to build things. There’s something incredibly thrilling about the prospect of building something that millions can use and benefit from.
Favorite course(s): CS 283 Systems Programming with Dr. Stuart – I learned a lot about writing good C as well as the fundamentals of operating systems.

What is your dream job? Working as a software engineer somewhere at the intersection of distributed systems and AI.
Hi! My name is Gurleen, and I’m a third-year CS major. I’m from Upper Darby, just ten minutes from campus. I transferred into this program from the First-Year Exploratory Studies program because I wasn’t sure if this was the path I wanted to pursue, but after taking CS 164 (which I now TA), I was hooked. I’m a big fan of basketball, Formula One, and football (Go Birds!). In my off-time I’m either working on my business, prepping for coding interviews, or listening to Aminé. Feel free to shoot me a message about Drexel, the city, or anything about computer science!
