Mohamed Samy traveled all the way from Egypt to join the Computer Science Masters program at Maharishi International University in May 2015. In the video below, he talks about his experience at the university as a Muslim student.
Mohamed describes many benefits of studying and being a practicing Muslim at MIU, as well as life improvements experienced in the friendly, peaceful and family-like city of Fairfield, Iowa, US.
Even with 15 years prior IT experience, Mohamed learned valuable new computer science skills in every class he attended. He is currently enjoying a paid internship as a Senior Software Engineer/Solutions Architect in Fairfield, Iowa, where he and his wife live.
“We all have this dream to travel and work abroad, to gain experience in America and other Western countries,” says Mohamed, “This is a great opportunity to expand your knowledge and get training experience.”
