Mahbub recently completed his BEng (Hons) in Aerospace Engineering at the Queen Mary University of London.  He joined the VACorps Program in 2018 and participated in an engineering internship. 

“Honestly, coming to Cape Town has definitely been one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life, no exaggeration, and I truly feel I’ve grown.  I’ve learned things at my internship site that I never would’ve imagined I’d be doing 3 months prior to now. Matteo, my supervisor, is possibly one of the most charismatic and intelligent people I know and never seems to be at a loss when I ask a question.”
