Clever woman Shamaria Engram established a new record for the university when she became the first ever black woman to get a PhD in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of South Florida in Florida.
Shamaria Engram worked assiduously to earn her degree during a time of global epidemic, and as a result, she was able to surpass the institution’s nearly 40-year-old record. The University of South Florida made mention of her exceptionality on its official social media pages.
“Shamaria Engram is making University of South Florida history as the first Black woman to graduate with a PhD in Computer Science and Engineering,” the university posted on Twitter.
At Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach, Florida, Engram started her academic career and graduated with honors with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering.
After receiving her undergraduate degree, she immediately enrolled in two Master’s degrees in computer science and computer engineering at the University of South Florida. In addition to her MSCS in Computer Science, she also earned a Masters of Science in Computer Engineering (MSCS).
