Mohammad Islam, a renowned mathematics and computer science figure, began his academic journey at the Shah Jalal University of Science and Technology (SUST) in Sylhet, Bangladesh, where he completed his B.Sc. and M.Sc. in 2005. Following his early education, Mohammad took up a teaching position at the National University in Bangladesh, igniting his passion for mentoring the next generation.

2007 marked a pivotal year for Mohammad. He moved to the United States and enrolled at The City College as a graduate student. By 2009, he had added another feather to his cap, obtaining a master's degree in mathematics from City College. Concurrently, he began his teaching career at the institution, initially as a graduate student lecturer and teaching assistant. Mohammad's expertise and commitment to education led him to John Jay College of Criminal Justice (JJAY) in 2009, where he continues to inspire students.

Outside the confines of the classroom, Mohammad is deeply involved in community service. He takes it upon himself to guide the community on education, immigration, and employment opportunities. As a staunch advocate of holistic development, he indulges in sports like volleyball, basketball, badminton, and soccer.

Currently, Mohammad is augmenting his academic prowess by pursuing Ph.D. classes at the Graduate Center. With an emphasis on practical application, Mohammad's teaching methodology comprises solving complex problems, interactive lectures, and fostering student participation. He firmly believes academic success hinges on consistent effort and practical application, urging students to devote ample time to homework and self-study.

His teaching mantra emphasizes building intellectual stamina rather than rote learning. Mohammad always encourages open communication, urging students to share feedback and insights to ensure an enriching learning experience.
