My name is Fahad Pervaiz and I am doing Master of Science in Coastal and Maritime Engineering at TU Delft. I did my bachelors from University of Engineering and Technology (UET) Taxila, Pakistan and after graduation I started working as Hydraulic Engineer at National Engineering Services Pakistan (Pvt) Limited (NESPAK) which is Pakistan’s premier consultancy organization. I heard about TU Delft from my immediate supervisor at NESPAK who studied at IHE Delft.
After working for a while, I desired to pursue masters to broaden my knowledge in the field of Civil Engineering. To act upon it, I looked for different options and none of those options matched the reputation and prestige of Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences, TU Delft. I was fortunate enough to get admitted in master’s Program with scholarship. I like most about the Department is the excellent professional staff who gladly extends their support to students, particularly international students, on various aspects. Their research interests are highly technical and at the same time practical and relevant. Facilities, which support both staff and students, are world-class. I consider taking the degree in this department to be the one of the best decision I have made in my life.
The way toward applying to a school abroad can be very overwhelming; from inquiries regarding confirmations, necessities to doing your first global e-transfer instalment, having your worries replied by somebody who has officially experienced everything can be very helpful. This is the place I come in; I turned into a part of the Ambassador Program since I was sufficiently blessed to have that same help when I applied.
In my free time I enjoy outdoor sports and traveling. Before you get here I would advise you to learn how to cook some of your favourite meals and make sure you know how to ride a bike!
If you have any questions about what it’s like at TU Delft and the Netherlands, the application process,or anything, feel free to contact me!
