Fares Dalati

Fares Dalati is 35 years old, from Syria and studying the Master’s Programme in Electronics Design. His previous studies include a two-year programme in Electronics with a specialisation in Industrial Control Systems at Damascus University in Syria, and a Bachelor’s degree in Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering at Applied Science University in Jordan.

What are your thoughts on your education at Halmstad University?

I enjoy the University’s scientific trips like the one to Espir (Inkubatorn) in Borås where the purpose was to get in touch with the most advanced lab. Even here, the labs at the University have advanced electronic microscopes which we can use in order for atoms to become tangible for us. My past studies were simply theoretical whilst in Halmstad there is a practical aspect which is much more beneficial. The teachers are all helpful and knowledgeable and they like to be asked questions. One of the teachers is the best one I’ve had, as he helped me understand quantum physics and I can now easily read a 1,000-page book about it. Also, having multicultural students is beneficial as it opens your mind to other educational processes which we learn from.

What do the courses in your programme consist of?

Each course consists of lectures, a lab, a project and an exam. The lectures consist of very interesting information and we sometimes deviate from the main concept to discuss other interesting subjects. The lab is applying some of those sciences such as nanoelectronics into an experiment context which is a lot of fun as you get to work with lasers, electromagnetic waves and such. Then you choose an aspect which you use as a base to build your final project for the course and then there is a final written exam which covers all material.

What do you think about the technology being used at Halmstad University?

At Halmstad University, they are in touch with the most advanced technology and they try to apply those in new science applications inside the labs so you learn a lot. I believe an engineer can work everywhere in the technological domain such as in development, electronics design, telecommunication industry and IoT – Internet of Things. Everything in our programme is built to serve this new revolution as everything will communicate with everything else in the future. In order to apply the term we need small senses based on nanotechnology which we will design in this programme, not only the sensor but also the communication mechanism. Today, all companies are demanding to work in an IoT domain which this programme serves.

Would you recommend your programme to students applying or thinking about it?

I do recommend students to apply to the programme whether they want to expand their knowledge or want an additional degree to compete with in the market. The courses in the programme cover almost everything from Physics and Chemistry to Engineering which makes it a broad programme and one intensive year. The advice I would give is that consistency is the way to finish and one must strive all the time since there is always room for more hard work.

”I want to help rebuild my country with the knowledge and experience I learn here.”
