What can I say? For sure University of Sharjah is one of the best universities that I studied in. I spent 12 years at the University as a student, researcher, and staff. I received both my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Civil Engineering and worked at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering for 5 years. The knowledge, skills, and experience I obtained at the University of Sharjah were the key to receive a prestigious scholarship at Carleton University in Canada, where I am currently pursuing my Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering. My gratitude to my professors at the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department for their tremendous effort, which I will never forget.

I was lucky to study at the University of Sharjah and graduate with B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Civil Engineering. The study experience was wonderful and the knowledge I gained at the University allowed me to start my career strong. I worked as a project engineer, researcher, and senior researcher at different organizations in the UAE. I am currently pursuing my Ph.D. in Civil Engineering at Carleton University in Canada with a full scholarship. Thanks to the University of Sharjah and to my professors at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering for their unlimited support.

My interest in Civil Engineering drove my personal choices during university to pursue further study in this field to satisfy my interests, ultimately leading me towards opportunities to undertake research in the field of Civil Engineering. Studying in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Sharjah has allowed me to develop a diligent work ethic and provided me with the necessary skills to pursue my interests further through doctoral research. I knew that after I received my bachelors, I would want to continue my education into a master’s degree; however, I never imagined that I would be able to go further. I have also been lucky enough to have an outstanding support system of colleagues and professors here at UOS, without their continuing support I would not be the Engineer I am today. My experience at UOS has turned into a journey I never thought possible, and I could not be more thankful.
