I’m a little upset that you have NO mention of my country, so I have had to put the next best possible alternative, which is Canada, I guess because I am in the process of applying for my immigration there, otherwise, I am a Pakistani born, raised and currently residing in Bahrain (funny you have India as a country but not Pakistan….?!)
Anyoo, came across your website, via the challenge posted by Rafael Testai on linked-In.
I have been a tinkering engineer since childhood, with the immense support of my parents I continued this through my hobbies and passions, leading up to my Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering. I have always enjoyed building things, and I am deeply passionate about sustainability, therefore my thesis both for my Bsc and Msc surround this topic (Solar Air Conditioning, Circular Business Models for Power & Water Plants in the Middle East).
I have worked as the founding member of a startup for two years (Private label business), where I learned business skills, managing people and just trying to learn how to afloat as a new entrepreneur. I moved on to a role in the compressed air field (industrial use), where I was responsible for design, sales & execution for co,pressed air stations & piping networks for industrial clients in the middle east region. I then moved on to my current role as a project engineer at a thermal power and desalination plant, in the engineering department, where I also have completed my master’s degree part-time in Engineering Management. I am responsible for Optimization, modification & root cause analysis projects whilst also overseeing compliance. All my projects need to be both technically viable in terms of design and execution, whilst also being fiscally acceptable, which means, I am responsible for recognizing problems, finding viable solutions, setting up business models for them and then presenting the complete technical & business proposal for the project.
My master’s was well timed to support my work; as it spanned Management of People & Organizations, Engineering for Quality, DFM, DFA & Business Improvement, Logistics & Supply Chain Management, Project & Financial Management. These modules introduced powerful frameworks that I have been able to apply in work, I guess my favorite part was the method of learning was through applied examples in our own work, which truly helped experience the value the concepts bring to the table.
I have enjoyed positive feedback, throughout my career, with leadership satisfied with my performance, however, I have not been so satisfied myself. After having hired a career coach, I have been able to determine that my true calling is in the field of enjoying design; of mechanisms, systems, bringing ideas to life; being able to truly design systems infusing them with concept of sustainability. Hence, I would like to become a design engineer, where I can bring much value to the projects I work on and to my own life. My experiences in the field and in personal life, designing solutions in a variety of field can be leveraged, with lots more for me to learn, and advance in.
