Morteza Hakimi

Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics PhD

After five years of being here, I could not be happier about my choice! In my opinion, the resources that are available at Penn for graduate students and their dependents are among the many reasons that make Penn an ideal place. SEAS at Penn is the home for some of the most talented (faculty) … and being a PhD student at SEAS was definitely a great experience for me. I think I have grown a lot, as an academic and as a person, by interacting with people here at Penn ... Faculty members are always available and very helpful and I am very grateful for that. Penn is such a vibrant community to be part of and the last five years have been very joyful to me!

More than 250 years ago, Benjamin Franklin, founder of the University of Pennsylvania, envisioned an academic institution where classical learning would be united with a sound practical education in the arts and sciences. In Ben's own words, students ought to receive everything that is practical and everything that is ornamental. Today Penn, the oldest university in the nation, is fulfilling that vision by preparing students for a technological world, a world where leadership goes to those who have learned how to combine the practical and the ornamental.
