Parsa’s introduction

Hi everyone! My name is Parsa and I’m a Part II Electrical and Electronic Engineering student. I have always been passionate about helping students younger than myself going through the exact same thing I did. That’s why I am here to pass on my experience of doing Electrical and Electronic Engineering at UoA to future students; I believe this can be valuable to them making the right choice when it comes to specialising. In my opinion, the whole purpose of doing Part I is making the right choice of specialisation and the more information you have about your chosen specialisation, the easier Part II becomes.

So, here’s a little about myself:

I was born in Tehran, Iran and I have been studying in New Zealand from Year 8, graduating from Auckland Grammar School in 2015. My hobbies include playing and watching table tennis and football (one of my first childhood memory is watching the 2002 FIFA World Cup when I was around 4 years old). I love mathematics and it has been my favourite subject since I started school.

Studying and tutoring takes most of my time. I have been tutoring mainly high school students, since Year 12 so I have an extensive experience of tutoring; I can’t express how much I enjoy helping out the students to achieve their goals. Nothing makes me happier than seeing my students improve day by day.

Why have I chosen a specialisation that students describe as ‘the graveyard’? From the beginning of Part I, I wanted to choose my specialisation from the Electrical and Computer Engineering department and the reason for this is I have always been fascinated by computers and how they operate. My father is an Electrical Engineer and he also motivated me in doing EEE. It turned out to be the best decision I have made.

Follow me on my journey and hopefully I will be able to give you a good picture of how life goes on doing EEE and what things we do. Believe me, it can be helpful to you making the right choice for next year.

I look forward to sharing my thoughts and experiences with you.
