I am currently the president (this is American for Chief ha ha) of Almadina Engineering PC, a New York Based Engineering Firm with a new branch in Cairo, Egypt.

After getting my Ph.D from ITS, I applied for permanent residency in USA and became a US citizen.

"ITS as one of the most important Transport Institutes, it gave me the required international exposure and many insights into how the business is run in the west which helped me a lot starting my own in the very competitive city of New York."

I decided to study at ITS as I had received a scholarship from the British government, and while several universities were on the table, I chose ITS Leeds because of its international reputation in Transport Planning and Engineering.

If I were to give advice to prospective students interested in the course if they really wanted to study transportation, they have to come to ITS Leeds. The lecturing staff I had were world renowned.

"Good luck to all new comers to ITS, enjoy and let the ITS team drive you to your very bright future."
