Amir-Hossein Karimi

During the summer, Amir-Hossein Karimi is taking it relatively slowly, no major goal setting; he claims he is in no rush to get to anywhere. He plans on spending the summer in Iran with his family and fiancée, devoting a great portion of his time to exploring the beautiful country and some self-exploration to figure out who he is.

Towards the end of the summer, Amir-Hossein will be joining Facebook as a Software Engineer. He excitedly adds, “If anybody’s in NYC next year, shoot me a message, I’d love to meet up! I’ll provide a free couch if you feed me for the duration of your stay!”

Amir-Hossein, one of the two most recent recipients of the Spirit of EngSci Award, speaks of his graduation:

“The summer after graduation finally came. Saying farewell to my classmates and friends, with whom I spent 4-5 years tackling projects and problem sets together, was one of the most eye-watering moments of my undergraduate career (even more so than the time my transcript showed I had passed quantum physics).”

He adds his own personal insight into success both in EngSci and in the years following – “100% of the shots you don’t take are a miss.”
