"Mohammad, one of the Syrian students supported by the Global Platform for Syrian Students, had 20 values in his master's thesis in Mechanical Engineering and became a "fundamental" piece in the robotics laboratory of the University of Coimbra.
As soon as the 20 values are spoken, Mohammad starts laughing in a half-timid way, and refuses to reap the rewards: "It was because of the help of my friends and my teacher, who is very bright and gave me many ideas ".
A native of Damascus, but of Palestinian origin, he left Syria shortly after the war broke out in the country in 2011. The Syrian, who had always had robots as a passion since childhood, spent two years in Algeria and was unable to pursue his studies .
He arrived at the University of Coimbra (UC) in 2014, in the framework of the platform launched by the former President of the Republic Jorge Sampaio: "March 28, 2014", says by heart."
