Recognition of Santa Clara University Student Graduate Kairan Quazi

Kairan Quazi will be graduating this June from Santa Clara University (SCU) with a Bachelor of Science degree for Computer Science and Engineering as the youngest graduate in the institution's 170-year history.

At the age of two, Kairan was speaking in full sentences and became an avid reader at six years old. At nine years old, Kairan went from traditional third grade to becoming a full-time college student to learn multiple programming languages at an intermediate level and began his knowledge in calculus and organic chemistry. Prior to SCU, Kairan graduated with an Associate degree in Mathematics from Las Positas College in Livermore at age 11 and was the youngest admit and graduate in the college's 60-year history. In addition, Kairan has had writings published in HuffPost and MIT Tech Review.

Kairan has served as an AI/Machine Learning intern at Intel Labs in Santa Clara starting at age 10 and through May 2023. In his next endeavor, Kairan will be joining SpaceX in July 2023 as the youngest employed software engineer.

At the June 6, 2023 City Council meeting, the Council will recognize Kairan Quazi for his exceptional accomplishments as a young prodigy in the areas of Computer Science and Engineering.
