The Committee was very impressed with the excellent academic results that Leen has achieved throughout her degree programme and winning three scholarships for her PhD.

Leen has displayed exceptional academic strength and breadth of campus and community involvement. Leen’s contribution to the academic reputation of the University by undertaking a very successful placement at Rolls Royce resulting in a job offer was commended. In addition, it was noted that she is a very good advocate for Women in Engineering and an active member of the University of Bath Women’s Engineering Society (WESBath). She showed herself to be a caring student, working with refugees including with Bath Welcomes Refugees as an Arabic translator and interpreter. Her involvement as an Academic Representative and with the Kickboxing Society offers further evidence of her abilities.
