Student receives Apple scholarship


Samuel Kanu, Electrical and Computer Engineering and Mathematics major here at Texas Southern University, was selected into the Apple HBCU Scholars program.   This is the second year of the initiative Apple launched in partnership with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund to provide opportunities in the tech industry for students and enhance engagement with faculty on HBCU campuses.  During the week of February 13th, Apple hosted 35 students from 16 HBCUs for a 5-day immersive experience at its headquarters in Cupertino, California where they learned more about the company’s culture, ecosystem and community. In May, they will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience through a paid internship.  Upon returning to school for their final year, students will receive scholarship funding to complete their education, and continue their experience with Apple and TMCF as Ambassadors to the program.  Please join us in recognizing Samuel Kanu on this great accomplishment. Additionally, Samuel is the President of the TSU student chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers and a TSU Calculus Bowl champion!

    Research

    Current research involvement includes a study of the curriculum and
    technology in the program. The study entitled “Technology Curriculum: An
    Assessment” is redefining whether training received by students were
    meeting the needs of industry, whether our students having difficulty in
    perusing their careers in the field for which they were trained. Are they
    able to compete both in industry and in furthering their education? What
    programmatic changes need to be made to allow for greater flexibility with
    newer and emerging technologies.

    Materials in construction and the energy efficiency of buildings is also
    one of my concerns. A few years ago I received funding to develop methods
    and usage of formed steel in residential construction. Steel-framing was
    used to conduct construction procedures and instruction/information in real
    time. Project is on-going and an assessment is warranted to determine
    outcomes and involvement. This interest covers the areas of quality,
    performance, and productivity in education involving human and natural
    resources
