Who am I?
I am a Senior Bridge Engineer working in the Structures
Division of Ringway-Jacobs’s Office in Chelmsford, Essex,
UK. I joined Mouchel as a bridge engineer in January 2008 and have worked
on different stages of projects as well as mentoring
civil engineering students of Anglia Ruskin
University, acting as SHEQ (Safety, Health,
Environment & Quality) Champion and Environmental
Coordinator. In April 2012, I moved to Ringway-Jacobs
as a senior bridge engineer to continue working on
Essex Highways projects.

I have worked for about six years in Iran on several important bridge design projects as well as lecturing at universities and workshops following the completion of my BSc and MSc courses with the first and second ranks, respectively. Then after, I passed the entrance exam of PhD course in structural engineering with the first rank and attended the course during my professional career. I have also cooperated in some academic research projects and engineering software design/development.
In 2007, I decided not to defend and publish my
PhD thesis and leave not only University of Tehran
where I was studying and teaching, but also my
beloved country, Iran. Over all, it was a gray and
in my life!
In 2007, I decided not to defend and publish my PhD thesis and leave not only University of Tehran where I was studying and teaching, but also my beloved country, Iran. Over all, it was a gray and gloomy year in my life!
I started my professional career (structural/bridge engineering) in Iran as a student engineer and elevated to the design team leadership position within five years before relocating to UK and starting my new professional career with Mouchel.
About my name
Some of my friends ask about the meaning of my name. My first name, “Sohail”, is the name of the second brightest star in the night-time sky after “Shabahang” (known as “Sirius” or “Alpha Canis Majoris” in English). The English equivalent of my name is “Canopus” or “Alpha Carinae”. Further information about the star “Sohail/Canopus” is available at Wikipedia Encyclopaedia.
My family name, “Forouzan-sepehr”, consists of two Persian words: “forouzan” which means “bright”, “luminous” and “sepehr” which is the Persian equivalent of “sky”. Therefore, my family name can be translated as an adjective in English which means “someone who has bright sky or simply is lucky!”
