Mark Hanna

Mark, originally from Egypt, has won awards for being the top Aerospace Engineering for his first and second year.

When asked about the best things about his course he said "The practical work, it's really hands on and we get access to great facilities such as Merlin Simulator.

I loved being given the chance to experience piloting a plane and working on it in a workshop in order to understand the implication of aerospace engineering."

Outside of his course he is part of the Tennis Club, is part of the Aerospace Society and a Student Ambassador.

In the future he would like to be a "successful Aerospace Engineer to help establish a better, more efficient world."

"3 things you need to know about Swansea, first of all the weather has a mind of it's own!

It could be snowing right now and then the sun shines and in 5 minutes it will be raining, you can't predict it!

Secondly I'm very sporty I play soccer, basketball, volleyball there are a lot of opportunities to play sports here at Swansea University.

Thirdly one thing I have to say about Swansea is that the people here are very friendly and it is not too big, there's a great community of people."
