Berzy Bahzad Omer, Information Technology ‘15
Berzy Bahzad Omer is an IT graduate from American University of Iraq, Sulaimani (AUIS), finishing in the top 10 of his graduating class and third in his department. A Sulaimani native, he joined the academic IT department as a lab assistant before deciding to pursue a master’s degree in Advanced Computer Networks at the University of Derby in the United Kingdom.
Berzy finished at the top of his class at Derby and attributed his AUIS education as a contributor to his success. “AUIS was a major factor behind my success in both my professional and academic endeavors,” he said. “The liberal arts-style of education at AUIS taught me the skills required to construct a well-written thesis as well as how to solve problems resourcefully.”
“Above all,” he noted, “I consider myself lucky to have had the chance to study at AUIS.”
Going forward, Berzy looks forward to applying the skills he has gained in his academic and professional experiences at AUIS and in the UK to further his career.
