Meet Incoming Freshman of SMU 2022 – Muhammad Izzat Junaidie

By the SMU Digital Marketing Team

If there is one thing that stands out in SMU’s latest incoming freshmen cohort, it is how diversity reigns. And while the latest additions to the SMU family hail from different backgrounds and boast varied interests, they all share a common goal: to gain a holistic, engaged and transformative education at this premier university in Asia.

Brimming with enthusiasm, these newcomers also bring with them a wealth of experiences and perspectives. They’re passionate about making a difference, from starting their businesses to working on cutting-edge research projects and volunteering in their local communities.

Join us in extending our warmest welcome to Muhammad Izzat Junaidie, a celebrated sportsman who has represented Singapore around the globe in the shooting sport. His biggest achievements thus far? A coveted gold medal in the SEA Shooting Championships, a silver in the ISSF Junior World Cup, and a bronze medal in the East Asian Youth Airgun Competition. The shooting champ will join SMU as a Bachelor of Science (Computer Science) freshman at the School of Computing and Information Systems in the new academic year.

Situated in central Singapore, SMU’s accessible location was undoubtedly a big plus. But what really appealed to me is its small class sizes, which allows for greater interactive learning.

Of the opportunities it’ll bring!
