Dr. Tamer Abukhalil
I am glad I was selected as a scholarship candidate from King Hussien bin Talal University. My scholarship experience was groundbreaking, as I learned I had a passion for teaching. Perhaps instead of sitting on a desk and do computer programming, my calling was to teach. I definitely was inspired by the dean Dr. Sobh and other faculty at the University of Bridgeport, and I wanted to emulate them. Maybe obtaining a Ph.D. was the right way to go. Also, learning cultures is my favorite thing to do. I enjoy interacting with new people very much. That’s why I was in the heart of different cultures congestion, in the United States of America. While pursuing my doctorate degree, I have become a member of the Upsilon Pi Epsilon, the international honors society for computing and information sciences in 2010. The picture bellow shows the moment when I and a group of members performed the vow in the Upsilon Pi Epsilon event. In 2014 I earned first place award in ASEE Conference for a robotic system that rescues a human-like dummy.
