Student Profile(s)

Muhammad Hassan Naqshbandi

Why did you choose to study at City University London?
I chose City University London because of the convenient location, the breadth and depth of module options and the MSc is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. Also, the enthusiasm the academics have for their respective fields, industry driven dissertation topics, and the consistently good ranking in league tables for engineering made City University London the perfect choice for me.

What do you enjoy most about your course?
I enjoy the challenge of working on projects that are new to me and learning how to apply computer software for solving complex engineering problems. The course offers numerous industrial site visits to compliment the teaching and the diversity of the module choices gave me a much broader understanding of sciences that I would not otherwise have learnt about. The lecturers are very helpful and approachable and the resources that are available are fantastic.

What has been a highlight of your course so far?
Working with Dr Qiang Zhang on my dissertation has been the highlight of my course. The research has made me more analytical and critical and encouraged me to think logically when working through problems. The scope and potential application of the energy harvesting concept we are working on, modelled using CFD, is a very exciting novel field of research.

What do you plan to do after you graduate?
I am working as a Mechanical Engineer for WSP | PARSONS BRINCKERHOFF designing energy centres and plant rooms for high rise buildings and progressing towards becoming a Chartered Mechanical Engineer. I want to use my engineering skills that I have developed at university to reduce the amount of energy we consume as the urban population steadily increases.
