Ahmed, Engineering

UTC Sheffield City Centre Engineering student Ahmed Camran was delighted when he opened his GCSE results: ‘It’s a feeling of complete satisfaction, knowing all the work I’ve put in has paid off, I’ve got what I need and I’m really happy.’

Now that Ahmed has completed his GCSEs, he plans to continue his studies at UTC Sheffield City Centre, specialising in Engineering and studying A Levels in Art and Physics. Outside of school he is also a keen boxer, with ambitions to reach the 2020 Olympics.

Ahmed said, ‘I have two career ambitions: To compete in the boxing world championships and Olympics, and to be an Automotive Design Engineer for a company like Mercedes, Audi or BMW. My background in boxing and the discipline it teaches has helped me to focus at school.’

Ahmed feels that the UTC is preparing him well for the world of work: ‘Whilst at UTC I’ve had the opportunity to use the Solid Works software and design a car; I’ve also build an engine during enrichment time. It’s fantastic to be able to use industry-standard facilities like that at school! The UTC has opened up opportunities I couldn’t get elsewhere.’

Summing up his UTC experience in three words Ahmed said, ‘Memorable, challenging and fun!’
