Student Profiles

Mohammed N. A. Herzallah

"I was interested in the Sustainable Energy Systems course at Queen Mary as it concentrates on investigating renewable energy sources and technologies as well as addressing environmental issues... Obtaining an MSc in Sustainable Energy Systems from Queen Mary will broaden my horizons in this field and enable me to inspire and teach future generations while tackling energy problems in [my home] Gaza Strip, Palestine."

"Queen Mary has staff members who are world-leading academics in sustainability. I wanted to become part of the solution for the world’s energy crisis and do more research into it. The hands-on experience in the state-of-the-art facilities at Queen Mary gave me an invaluable insight into the world of sustainability and renewable energy storage. The interdisciplinary approach and the mix of engineering and research have helped me in my long-term goals of becoming a researcher."
