My name is Irfan Haider, and I come from Pakistan. My fascination with technological advancements such as in Automotive Engineering, Aerospace and Structural Engineering led me to adopt Computational Engineering as my profession. To achieve my goal, I opted for a Master of Science in Computational Mechanics as my discipline of choice at Technical University of Munich (TUM), Germany, and a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from University of Engineering and Technology, Lahore.
During my master’s studies, I took several courses to broaden and deepen my understanding of Computational Engineering. This not only allowed me to delve deep into my passion for the study of computational methods to study various phenomena but also permitted me to think beyond my perception. Until recently, I have been working as a simulation engineer in the Gear Research Centre on the modeling and simulation of a multi-plate clutch. During my master’s thesis, I worked on the development of a framework to efficiently model and simulate the yarns with bending stiffness.
I have been studying and working with modeling and simulation of various structures and I find the topic of mesoscopic modeling and simulation in the context of automotive applications fascinating. This rigorous and interdisciplinary program will enable me to further enhance my skills in computational methods and in numerical software development.
