He Tells his story

"After about two years in the United States, I have successfully earned my MSc in Computer Science with a perfect Cumulative Grade Point Average of 4.0 out of 4.0. Additionally, I am honored to have received two prestigious awards: the Most Outstanding Student of the Year and Graduate Assistant of the Year.

During my studies, I specialized in Software Engineering, and my final project delved into the exciting realm of Artificial Intelligence (AI) - Neural Networks. Specifically, I focused on leveraging AI to enhance Physics Simulation in sports such as tennis and golf. Through a series of trials, the software simulated a robot playing the game and autonomously optimized its accuracy by learning from its experiences.

This academic journey has been nothing short of exhilarating, and I am immensely grateful for the support, mentorship, assistance, and prayers that I have received from numerous individuals.

I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to my ever-supportive advisor, Dr. Lei Huang, for serving as both a mentor and a friend. I also extend my thanks to all the members of the Computer Science Department who have been a constant source of inspiration and encouragement. You all rock!

I must not forget to acknowledge the many undergraduates whom I had the privilege of tutoring while working as a graduate assistant.

A special thanks goes to Prof. Olasoji and Prof. Akingbade for their exceptional teaching and the discipline they instilled in me during my Bachelor's degree program in the Elect/Elect Department at FUTA.

To my parents, in-laws, and most importantly, my wife, Bukola, and daughter, Demi, I owe a profound debt of gratitude. Your unwavering support and understanding throughout these past years have been invaluable.

Ultimately, I attribute all the glory and success to God, who has been by my side since the very beginning of this transformative journey."
