    PERSONAL PROFILE

     

    I am an MSc Aerospace Vehicle Design engineering student with one year of industrial experience in vehicle testing as a noise and vibration engineer at CNH UK, Ltd. I am a young motivated individual seeking a career in aerospace engineering and expanding my experience, which I acquired during my placement year. Throughout my educational career I have been constantly developing my engineering skills, which has, enabled me to solve most of the engineering problems which I faced during my studies, projects and work placement.

     

    TECHNICAL SKILLS

     

    ·         Good command over Computer Aided Design Software such as CATIA V5, Solidworks and AutoCAD.

    ·         Thorough knowledge of Structural Analysis Software ANSYS, STRAND 7 and NASTRAN/PATRAN.

    ·         Software measuring aerodynamic parameters such as AVL, Tornado and X-Plane.

    ·         Advanced user of Microsoft Office and Microsoft Visual Basics 2008.

    ·         Experience of working with Noise and Vibration analysis software which includes ArtemiS, Smart Office Noise and Vibration Analyser (MPI), ME VES Scope and Pulse LabShop.

     

    EDUCATION AND QUALIFICATIONS

     

    Oct 2010 – Sept 2011      MSc Aerospace Vehicle Design (Aircraft Design), Cranfield University, UK                                               

    Modules: Loading Actions, Airframe Systems, Aircraft Aerodynamics, Detail Stressing, Design and Analysis of Composite structures, Finite Element Analysis, Aircraft Performance, Stability and Control, Fatigue Fracture and Damage Tolerance

    Individual Research Project: Flight Mechanics of Box Wing Aircraft

    The project involves calculating various flight mechanic parameters of a box wing aircraft. The analysis is divided into four sections; firstly analysing the aerodynamics of the wide body fuselage; secondly understanding the effect of different sweep angles of the wing; thirdly designing the various control surfaces for control and stability of the aircraft and finally monitoring the mass and centre of gravity of the aircraft. Analysis is widely based on software such as AVL, Tornado, X-Plane and with a possibility of using Oofelie for advanced analysis at later stage of the analysis.

    Group Design Project: Detail design of V10 Tiltrotor Tailplane

    Detail design of the horizontal stabiliser in compliance with the EASA and DEF Stan requirements. Structural analysis of the tailplane was carried out with extensive use of the structural analysis software NASTRAN/PATRAN in conjunction with CATIA v5, which was backed up by hand calculations. Also gained good command over CAD and structural analysis software, which was demonstrated by successful completion of the group project. Derivation of fatigue spectrum and analysis of Damage tolerance was also carried out to ensure the structural integrity of the component.

     

    Sept 2006 – Jun 2010      BEng Aerospace & Astronautics Engineering (Hons), Kingston University London, UK           

    Modules: Aerodynamics and Propulsion; Aerospace Structures and Materials; Space Vehicle Design; Electronics and Control; Engineering Mathematics, Project Engineering and Aerospace Engineering Design.

    Individual Research Project: Vibration and modal analysis of aircraft components

    Investigation of different techniques of excitation in vibration and modal analysis of aircraft components.The project simulated work conditions similar to industry which required designing, building the experiment and carrying out the test.

    Group Design Project: Design, build and launch a UKRA Level 1 Rocket with a scientific payload

    The project tasked us with the designing and manufacturing ‘payload bay’ for the rocket. The group choose me as their leader for this project because in my second year group project I successfully took the group through different situations and finished the project in due time. Also I feel that I am better equipped to work in a team as I quickly adapt and integrate and also I have good communication and team management skills, which I achieve by creating a relaxed but efficient working environment for the group members to operate in.

     

    Feb 2006 – Jun 2006      Pathway Programme for Engineering (Foundation), HIBT University of Hertfordshire, Hertfordshire, UK

    Modules: Physics, Mathematics and Statistics

     

    Sept 2003 – Jun 2005     F.Sc Pre Engineering – Higher Secondary School Certificate (A Level), Edwards College, Pakistan        

    Modules: Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics

    PROFESSSIONAL EXPERIENCE

     

    Jun 2008 – Jun 2009 - Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH) Engineer, CNH UK, Ltd, Basildon, Essex, UK

     

    Noise and Ride Evaluation

    Part of my role as a NVH Engineer was to carry out noise evaluations on vehicles during their different manufacturing phases. I developed a set pattern of testing to maintain consistency in my test results and also setting a benchmark level for all the vehicles to compare the test results. I would take into account the critical aspects of vehicle testing which again led to consistency and accuracy of the results.

     

    One of my key responsibilities was to test the ride comfort for different vehicles. According to the British Standards of Engineering, Agricultural vehicles have to pass a certain ride test to deem certified for safe driving. The ride tests were carried out over artificial tracks certified by ISO. On failure of these tests the vehicles suspension components were looked over and a solution was proposed to the design engineer. This required working closely with the design engineers as a team and addressing these issues to achieve a solution for the failures.

     

    During my placement year I managed to develop mycommunication skills, which enabled me to relate to a wide range of people in the company including managers and senior engineers. I would talk to my colleagues and get to know them on a personal level and would frequently arrange for events where most of us could come after work and discuss other things apart from work. I believe that coming together like that develops the team and increases the understanding between its members.

     

    Software Development

    Apart from my usual work, which involved noise and vibrations, I was asked to create a database of the noise level data for all the vehicles manufactured in the plant. I started by researching into the company’s product offerings and identifying the data required for the product offered by the company. I also researched into the number of vehicles to be tested and also on the test conditions as well. After the testing period all the data was put together in to a programme, which was built using Microsoft Visual Basics 2008.  The programme created generated the data both numerically and graphically based on the user input.

     

    Modal Analysis

    Occasionally I would have been asked to carry out modal analysis on vehicle prototype components to confirm the results from the Finite Element Analysis or to check for resonance frequencies transmitting noise and vibration. This would involve extensive use of the modal analysis software such as Pulse Lab Shop and ME VES Scope.

     

    EXTRA CURRICULAR

     

    I was the Chairperson of the Kingston University Students for Exploration and Development of Space. As a chairperson my duties involved assigning tasks to the committee members and taking key decisions in the society’s interest. As a society we would organise trips to conferences and other social gathering events.

     

    I am part of group of students who are trained as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Ambassadors. As STEM Ambassadors we are required to design and create a suitable educational activity and then delivering it in a local school. I was assigned the role of Team Facilitator which required me to help the team with creating the activity and successfully presenting it.

     

    ACHIEVEMENTS

     

    Winner of EADS Astrium Astronautics Prize for the best MEng/BEng Aerospace Engineering & Astronautics course final year student award.
