Abdullah Swissi Emhemed, a researcher based within EEE’s Institute for Energy and Environment, has received an award from the Libyan Minister of Education and Libyan Embassy in recognition of his excellent research work, and support and assistance for Libyan students within the UK.
Abdullah, pictured at the Awards Ceremony was Head of Student Affairs for the Libyan Students Union UK from 2006 to 2008 and during this time, helped build links between academic institutions in the two countries, and provided guidance and help for Libyan students whilst they were based in the UK.
In addition to being an active senior committee member of the Libyan Students Union, Abdullah is completing his PhD in “Protection and transient stability of small scale micro-generation” as part of the EPSRC funded Highly Distributed Power System Project, led by Strathclyde.
On receiving his award, Abdullah commented: “I am delighted and honoured to have been presented with this award. Balancing my research commitments and Union activities is a challenge, but one that I relish. The University has an excellent reputation for engineering, and I am looking forward to promoting and encouraging more Libyan students to join Strathclyde.”
