Homa is a student ambassador who was also awarded the Salters Institute Scholarship
Why did you choose to study at City, University of London?I read the course structure and I really liked the subjects that were covered and realised it would give me vast knowledge in various aspects of engineering.
The course would enable me to become a well-educated engineer, especially since it included both theoretical and practical lessons. Attending a City open day offered me the opportunity to see the laboratory facilities and learn more about what is offered in Engineering. Also the course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers which allows me to become a chartered engineer after graduation.
What do you enjoy most about your course?The fact that the course enables me to build on my knowledge, and I can see that I have much more power in handling problems and linking various aspects of science. The staff is always willing to help and with the support from the Careers, Student Development & Outreach team and employability programmes I have become more confident in developing my career.
What has been your favourite module and why?The modules that I have developed thermo-fluids and computational skills in are the most exciting ones. Thermo-fluids require a deep understanding of principles of physics and it is very analytical which I really enjoy. City's inhouse computer programmes give you the opportunity to go beyond the limits and do more powerful analysis.
What has been a highlight of your course so far?I received the Salters Institute Scholarship for exceptional achievement in physical science. It was an honor to receive the award from this prestigious institute and I am very thankful that my hard work has been recognised. Also the experience of learning more each day and developing my knowledge and skills is a great feeling.
I am a City student ambassador which is a great experience because I lead tours of the University to potential students, which I had taken part in, merely years before.
