My name is Mohammed Seyam, and I’m currently a Collegiate Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Virginia Tech.
I aspire to use my background in Agile development, Information systems, and CS Education research to bridge the gap between industry and academia through:
Implementing real-world practices in CS classrooms
Engaging companies with students in project-based and capstone courses
Incorporating data-informed tools to support learning and teaching.
As the Department Coordinator for Experiential Learning, I aspire to help students be better prepared for the future by integrating leadership and professional skills as core components of their college experience. Promoting diversity and inclusion practices is always a priority for me in workplaces and classrooms, with the ultimate goal of building a better world that allows everyone to thrive.
