Life in Engineering: Fatima Amadou

    An International Perspective: Fatima

At Nebraska, it's clear that you do matter: they want you to succeed, you do have talents, and you can make a difference in the long run.

Fatima Amadou
Major: Biological Systems Engineering

As a junior, Fatima transferred from a university in Istanbul, Turkey to UNL to more fully pursue her interest in genetics and bioengineering. She’s jumped right into campus life, including being chosen to attend the college’s first Complete Engineering Conference in partnership with Union Pacific, interacting with industry professionals and other engineering students.

Drawing from her experiences living overseas, she will also be working as a student “diplomat” of sorts to help other international students adjust to American life and the university. Her favorite part of being here so far: the changing seasons and that it is truly “Nebraska nice.”
