Why did you choose to attend UT Tyler?
At the beginning of my search for universities in America, I decided to choose a university in the States with a similar climate to Egypt, so I chose Texas. It is one of the most safe in American States and after the selection of Texas, I learned that the University of Texas at Tyler has a strong and distinct program of study electrical engineering. It is one of the best programs in the United States; it is flexible and enabled me to choose subjects that I want to study. It also provides the many scholarships and the cost of living is low. Tyler is very close to most of Texas' major cities such as Dallas and Houston as well as the city of Austin. For all these reasons I decided to choose the University of Texas at Tyler as the best place to complete my Masters in the field of electrical engineering.
What are your career goals and how does your graduate program support them?
The reason behind my quest to get my Masters is my desire to get practical experience in the field of electrical engineering in general, and especially in the field of telecommunications and electronics engineering. I intend to work for two years in the United States and then back to my country to work in the same area and take advantage of the experience which will be gained through my master's degree and also through working in the field of telecommunications engineering.
What do you like most about UT Tyler?
I saw a lot of pictures of the campus before coming here, but I never imagined it was this beautiful; which calls for psychological comfort and helps to study. I also like the university's treatment of teachers to students and how they're available for student questions and inquiries. I was also impressed with the opportunities for exercise within the university where we can learn and practice sports such as taekwondo, tennis, and swim for free at the university. Grants, scholarships, and employment opportunities of study within the university where I work enabled me to reduce my costs of study in half.
