Today we speak to Omar Bedewy, a junior Electrical and Computer Engineering major with a minor in Business. Omar is an off-campus renter from Paterson, NJ (Passaic County). He transferred to Rowan from Union County College.
What inspired you to choose your major?
Life is changing around us. Before I was an Electrical and Computer Engineering major, I was hoping to be a petroleum engineer. I switched to studying electrical and computer engineering because I believe this field will have a big impact on the future.
Tell us something interesting you’ve learned in a class this semester.
I am taking a class on electromagnetics. I found out that electromagnets are in everything, and I am really interested in the science behind it.
Take us through one typical Rowan day for you.
Wednesdays are usually my busiest days. I come to Rowan at eight in the morning. I have some coffee and check my email. After that, I head out to my first class at 9 a.m. I have a lab right after, but I have 15 minutes in between. During that time, I talk and chill with my friend. After the lab, I go for some tutoring and study for a bit. Then, I have another class. After this class, I go to the cafeteria for my lunch. I have one more class at 5, and then I go home.
Tell us about one club, organization or group of friends that makes you feel like Rowan is home.
I really enjoy going to tutoring at Rowan. The people there make me feel like Rowan is home.
