·        Total 7 IGCSE, including English (as a second language), Biology and Information and Communication Technology with grades ranging from B to A*.

Engineering experience:

Duniya Al Ibdaa | June 2016 to September 2016 | Al Ain, United Arab Emirates

·        My job title was Civil Engineer (Trainee), where I worked at two different sites.

·        The first site exposed me to concrete and blockwork, while the second was mainly in the finishing.

·        My responsibilities included overviewing the work carried on site allowing me to implement the theoretical knowledge gained through my degree into practice.


During my studies, I worked on various projects. These included:

Master’s Thesis Project

·        I worked on a thesis project titled “The Effect of Afterburn and Ventilation of the Propagation of the Quasi-Static Pressure in Confined Explosions” as my master’s degree. This resulted in providing an understanding of how a change in volume and addition of ventilation can affect the pressure and impulse in a compartment.

Bachelors Thesis Project

·        As part of my bachelor’s degree, I worked on a thesis project entitled “Conceptual Design for Multi-Story Steel Framed Buildings”. The project resulted in me developing a software able to create a scheme design for multi-story steel framed buildings.

Integrated Design Project (IDP)

·        In my third year, I worked with a group of students on the “Integrated Design Project” that aimed to help transform an industrial area in Neepsend to a residential area.

·        The designs created included the residential houses, transportation to and from the site, a headquarters office, and a temporary expo center together with a decontamination process for the area.

Engineers Without Borders (EWB)

·        EWB is an international group of engineering students aiming to alleviate poverty by removing barriers to development through appropriate technology.

·        I have volunteered to help design and build a fully functioning wind turbine model.

Heartspace Project

·        As part of the university curriculum, we were assigned to tender the Heartspace project in the Mappin building.

·        The tender provided information on the estimated construction time and cost together with a safety and risk assessment, construction procedure and cashflow for the project.

Engineering You’re Hired week (EYH)

·        EYH is where a group of second year engineering students work on industry advised projects.

·        I was assigned to provide a new and more efficient procedure for the construction of 20+ story building using 3D printing technics.

·        I achieved a distinction grade for the proposed design demonstrating excellent planning and team management.

Rother Valley

·        In my first year, I designed a water slide with a group of students. The design included doing the ground investigation and the water calculations together with the construction cost and time estimates.

Skills & Abilities:

Computational skills:

·        AutoCad

·        Matlab

·        SolidWorks

·        Microsoft Office

·        LS-DYNA

·        Primavera

·        Ansys

Team Work:

·        The “Global Engineering Challenge” Week (GEC) is where a group of multi-disciplinary first-year engineering students work on solving real-world problems.

·        The diversity of the group helped me develop effective communication and team management skills.


·        I led a group of second-year students from different engineering departments into getting a distinction as part of “Engineering You’re Hired” week (EYH) that was organized by the university.

·        In high school, I was elected to be the class representative in the students’ council for two consecutive years. My responsibilities included calling meetings with the class to collect their feedback which was later presented to the administration.

Oral and written communication:

·        As an inclusion officer with the Arab Society, I was responsible for the communication with other societies to organize collaborative events. I also had to ensure that members of the society are included in the events.

·        One of the activities that I was involved in was teaching Arabic to international students from different backgrounds. The feedback from the students showed that the lessons were communicated in a simple and effective manner.


·        I won the “One World Award” for internationalization as an inclusion officer with the Arab Society at the University of Sheffield.

·        In the first year, I was awarded an undergraduate scholarship for my academic achievement in high school and I was able to maintain it throughout my bachelor’s degree.


·        I am fluent in both Arabic and English languages.

Driving Licences:

·        I have driving licenses in both Jordan, United Arab Emirates.
