DSMT’s latest graduate 2023

Rawan – 2018 HE scholarship student

Rawan completed her five year Computer Engineering degree course at Birzeit University in 2023. After DSMT closed in 2021, UK charity Friends of Birzeit University (FOBZU) managed the last two years of her scholarship on our behalf. Throughout her course Rawan was awarded consistently high grades in the 90s and was awarded an ‘honour grade’ each year, apart from 2020 when such grades were suspended because of the COVID pandemic.

“Last week was my last at uni and it went amazing. I have done my graduation project in front of my professors, my family and friends and thankfully everything went well.” 

“Here I am with my project partners” (Rawan far left)
Soon after graduation Rawan started work.  “I have already started a job with the Microsoft team at Asal Technologies in Ramallah.  They offered me a job in January and I am officially an employee now. (April 2023)  This is why it is the most amazing week of my life….. I’m super excited for my next chapter now!”

“I just want to thank you and everyone in the DSMT for all their help. I am really grateful. A last update in regard to my university, our graduation party was in July. I am attaching a picture of me representing all the engineering students at the graduation day, as I achieved the highest grades!
