Masrur A. Tajwar

Masrur Tajwar is graduating with a bachelor of science in computer science from the College of Engineering.

An Irvin R. Kales Scholarship recipient, Tajwar has maintained a 3.74

GPA and made the dean’s list multiple times.

Tajwar has worked as a co-op software developer at DTE — a proud partner of Wayne State University — since May. He is a member of the WSU Street Squad, where he helps conduct outreach across Michigan and generate positive impressions about Wayne State for prospective student and alumni. He has served as secretary
of the Society of Computer Developers, helping the society win the Michael Darson Award in its inaugural year. Tajwar also played an integral role in revitalizing the Engineering Student Senate (ESS), serving as the current secretary and former co-president. During his tenure as co-president of ESS, his proudest accomplishment was housing the American University of Kurdistan and discussing engineering possibilities with their new 2x2 degree program with Wayne State.

The WSU Math Corps has been Tajwar’s second family since 2013. He was involved in the program as a middle school student and a high school teaching assistant, and served as a college instructor until 2021. These opportunities have allowed Tajwar to give back to this community.

Currently, Tajwar volunteers with United Way’s “Light the Way, Live United” campaign, and with DTE and the “Pink in the Park” campaign. He also volunteers with the Detroit Urban Neighborhood Initiative to maintain safe and thriving environments for residents.

Wayne State has provided Tajwar with opportunities to connect with campus, representing WSU across Michigan and volunteering with many internal and external events — all while staying Warrior Strong.

Following graduation, Tajwar plans to continue his work at DTE as a full-time software developer while pursuing a master’s in business administration.
