A heart for increasing access to quality education in Africa
CMU-Africa made a difference in the life of MSIT student Rahma Ahmed. “My dream is to be an educator with a purpose,” Rahma says. She plans to be an entrepreneur and have a foundation so that she can fund schools across Somalia to train doctors, engineers, educators, and scientists.
Extending healthcare access across the continent
CMU-Africa students use emerging technologies and the skills they learn at CMU to improve the continent. David Chukwuma is pursuing his Master of Science in Information Technology and will be graduating in the spring. Throughout his time at CMU-Africa, he has tackled multiple projects focused on making technology more accessible and improving life for people in rural areas.
