MedTech, Your Pathway to Success… – The Mediterranean Institute of Technology announced two engineering students who will receive SMU Merit Scholarship for the academic year 2016/2017.
This is the second year that MedTech awards scholarships to freshmen applicants. The purpose of this initiative is to invest in outstanding students by offering scholarship funding for engineering studies at MedTech (Software engineering, Computer Systems, or Renewable Energies).
The awarded students, who have both demonstrated outstanding scholastic achievement and community service, are:
Narmine Ben Aissa, who received her baccalaureate with high honors (16,44/20) from the Pioneer School of Ariana (LPA). In high school, Narmine was involved in numerous volunteer activities, as a founder of the Microsoft club in LPA, member of the American Corner debate club as well as a volunteer journalist for the Tunisian International Model United Nations (TIMUN) annual report. She was also proud to represent Tunisian students at the Technovation Competition in San Francisco where she was able to meet with the co-founder of the cloud-based file storage service Dropbox, Drew Houston. “Meeting with Drew Houston in person has inspired me in an incredible way. I returned home with the mission to launch my own Start-up, and I have chosen MedTech as the proper academic environment to reach my goal”.
Heni Mezrani, graduated from Carthage Byrsa High School with distinction (15,23/20). Before enrolling at MedTech, Heni was selected as an exchange student for the Youth Exchange and Study Program and completed two years at the Pinckney Community High School in cialis 20mg Michigan. He enjoyed his student life in the U.S. to the fullest as a committed exchange student. He accomplished 100 community service hours in the US and was rewarded by the US Department of State for his outstanding volunteer service. “MedTech is the perfect fit for me for two reasons: I have always wanted to specialize in Software Engineering, and MedTech offers this specialization. Moreover, MedTech is the only Tunisian engineering school to offer the opportunity of a joint diploma with the University of Michigan, which is tempting since I dream of studying there”.
