Rahman Abdul-Salam (He/Him) - Vice President of Science and Engineering 2022/23



What are your campaigns/ what would you like to achieve for students this year? 

My main campaign for this year is to work on accommodation issues which is been faced by students - rising rent; energy cap increases, and inflation on basic goods are out of hand and I want to do what I can to ensure students are getting a good deal on where they live. A lot of students don't know their tenancy rights and what they are capable of doing in instances such as a landlord refusing to return a deposit. I want to see to it that every student can choose to live in the city their campus is located in, and not be forced to live far away and commute in; potentially losing out on being a part of our campus community.


Why are you passionate about this project idea? 

I’m passionate to work on this campaign because I myself got an issue with accommodation and I came to know that most students from ARU also facing these same issues. Nobody should have to go through difficulties with accommodation, especially when coming to university which is already a massive life change for so many.


What's your ultimate ARU moment? 

My ultimate moment at ARU was during my MSc in Computer Science. There was a module for me in Web Application Security where they taught us basic hacking! It was an awesome session for all of us! It was an OMG moment for me because I hacked something, just like someone in a movie or a video game. And then the elections came - oh my God! It was a turning point for me because I didn't think I was the kind of person who would get elected but you, the students, proved me wrong and now here I am as your VP for Science & Engineering now.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years’ time?
