MEng Aerospace Engineering at the University of Sheffield, UK
I graduated with a MEng Aerospace Engineering Degree (1st Honours) from the University of Sheffield, UK, in 2012.
During my studies, my focus was on Avionics. I spent a lot of time playing with my Arduino autopilot system for MAVs.
My final year project involved the development of a pitch angle controller testing facility that could be used to optimise PID control values for a model airplane wing in a wind tunnel.
I am a co-founder of the Simurq Aeronautics Group dedicated to building model aircraft for entry into national and international competitions.
I was part of the team entering the annual Heavy Lift Challenge, organised by the BMFA, during my second and third year at the University of Sheffield. I was the team leader entering the competition in the academic year 2010/2011. The aim of the competition is to design, build and fly a radio controlled, payload carrying aircraft, and to maximise the value of its “payload/aircraft empty mass” ratio, ie. carry as much weight as possible following the design constraints.
We won the an award for "Best Leisure and Appreciation Society" from the Sheffield Students' Union in 2011.
