Abdelrahman completed his MEng (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering with Honours in 2019 at City, University of London followed by an MSc in Racing Engine Systems at Oxford Brookes University in 2020. During his time of studies, Abdu was highly involved in IMechE Formula Student, being an active member in City Racing's ICE Team and Oxford Brookes Racing's Electric Team. Starting the second year of his undergraduate degree as a design co-ordinator, he took on positions of Powertrain Lead and Team Lead in his final years at City. In addition to timekeeping, procurement, team integration and ensuring deliverables are met, part of his responsibilities included design, optimization of Intake and Exhaust Systems and Integration of a small-scale Electric Supercharger. At Oxford Brookes Racing, his responsibilities included design, development and integration of OBR20's epicyclic gearbox. He spent his summers working alongside industry engineers at Mercedes-Benz, Daytona Motorsport and Honda Motorcycles where he gained invaluable experience in automotive engine design, manufacturing, and maintenance. His interest in Digital Systems, Control and Optimization developed while working on his MSc thesis at Brookes, investigating Machine Learning Algorithms to Predict and Reduce Emissions in a GDI Engine with Positive Valve Overlap for Racing Applications. Within AAPS-CDT, Abdu sees a valuable opportunity to play a major role in tackling the rising sustainability issues and help provide a cleaner future for successive generations.
