Ihab's Story

MSc Mechanical Engineering

When you grow up being taught English and how to ‘use your grey matter’ by your former-engineer father, then go on to earn A's in maths and physics, you’re pretty much destined to become an engineer. So you might as well do it the right way.

In the end it was my Dad who helped me to decide. He told me that lots of people have a degree these days, push yourself and get a Masters… There’s all the time in the world later on to work. He was right, as usual.

Now I’m specialising in mechanical engineering and with every day learning something new. So much so that it feels like I’d barely scratched the surface before.

I can’t imagine not knowing the things I know now. What really helps is how lecturers here at the University of Portsmouth don’t just give you information; they start you out and then let you discover the rest yourself, learning by your mistakes, which is far more rewarding.

This kind of learning has led me to three distinctions and two merits this year as well as a thesis on Morphing Wing design, which involves creating a bird-like aircraft wing using smart materials to increase aerodynamic efficiency. One of my objectives is to make air travel cheaper for everyone.

The MSc has set me up for a brilliant future. Now I just need to put my plans into action!
