Amir Hosseinpour was awarded a Caterpillar Foundation Scholarship at the Annual Scholarships, Prizes and Bursaries Evening, January 2013.

Where are you from?

I was born and lived in Iran, and moved to the UK at the age of 16.

Why were you awarded the scholarship?

I achieved 79% in the third year of my course and I was ranked number one among all the students (mechanical, aeronautical and automotive).

How has this award helped you?

This award helped me concentrate on my studies without any financial difficulties and also increased my chances of getting the AVL Powertrain Doctoral Scholarship for the project "an investigation into Electric Supercharging for emission reduction by means of engine downsizing" at City.

Why do you enjoy studying engineering? And what sort of person would you encourage to apply for an engineering course?

I truly enjoy complex problem solving. If you choose engineering as a career, you will turn ideas into reality and solve problems that better society. You will be right on the cutting edge of technology. You should also be curious, creative, innovative, and practical about how things work and the world around you. You should have the desire to help people and improve the world around you. At the very least, you should enjoy learning how to make things work more efficiently.
