ETM President’s Senior Cup
Dual Degrees: Renewable Energy and Electrical Engineering
An exemplary student in every way, Mohamed’s commitment excellence was evident through his 13 terms on the Dean’s or President’s Lists, holding many student leadership positions, and receiving some of the highest honors at Oregon Tech. An international student hailing from Dubai, UAE, Mohamed was an active and intrinsic member of Oregon Tech’s International Student Community. During his service as the Diversity Center’s student director, he led the program through a year of developing educational and social events which demonstrate the value of understanding difference in our global community. He personally developed and implemented the Arabic Immersion Program, which shared his culture and language with audiences of all sizes. He also designed a lab course for his academic major which will continue to serve our students for years to come.
Even during the summers, when most students relax, Mohamed stayed active while volunteering at youth camps at home – “Over the course of two months, I volunteered to organize and plan different activities for the camp participants such as cultural events, sports competitions, movie nights, and much more.” When taking time for himself his hobbies include photography, wood crafting, fishing, reading mystery novels, and assembling electronic models…but, thankfully, not all at the same time.
Perhaps the most important thing to note about Mohamed is his connection to his friends. The recommendations he received from peers, faculty, staff, and friends speak volumes about his character and that he is a person who can be counted on and is always willing to help.
