Amila Mehić – graduate

by | Oct 20, 2023 | Students' stories

Very ambitious, hardworking, persistent, Amila Mehić is a graduate of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Zenica, who received the Dean's Charter for all four years of her studies, and then at the University's 23rd anniversary ceremony, she was presented with the Rector's Award for the best success, participation, activities and the overall average over 9 at the undergraduate study of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, University of Zenica.

Therefore, below we bring you a short interview with colleague Mehić.

  • Amila revealed to us what it feels like to graduate from university, and how the best of the best.

 First of all, a feeling of gratitude for everything, and then pride and happiness!

  •  Was the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering your first choice when entering the university?

 First of all, I will say that my desire was to enroll in one of the technical faculties, and after I decided to continue my education in Zenica, the only logical choice was the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering.

  •  Where did you get your inspiration and motivation from?

Although most people think that motivation and inspiration for their work should be found in other people or certain situations, I think that this is something that a person should find and work out with himself. Since faith is an integral part of my life, it is she who commands me to seek knowledge. With that in mind, I didn't need any additional inspiration or motivation. Of course, every time I experienced a failure, in any form, it was my motivation to prove that I could very easily turn it into an extraordinary success, but primarily I "pushed" myself forward the most, because giving up was never an option .

  •  What did you have to give up during your studies?

It might sound impossible, but it really is. Simply, through my education, I learned to value time, and to allocate it very well. As much as it was important for me to complete all my university duties on time, it was much more important for me not to neglect my family, friends, and first of all myself. It wasn't just studying, going out for exams, studying and the like, there were also numerous extracurricular activities in which I was involved. As a member of iDEAlab with a couple of colleagues, I organized workshops in the field of 3D modeling, 3D scanning and 3D printing, I participated in many workshops as well as CEEPUS projects of short student excursions. By volunteering at important events, I made many acquaintances, and in addition, I was a member of the Scientific and Teaching Council of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Zenica for two years, as a student representative. What definitely marked my studies was direct participation in the program of the STEM Academy in Zenica as an educator at levels 3 and 4. Through this activity, I also developed a love for robotics, and the spectrum of areas of interest expanded even more.

  •  Who was your biggest supporter?

Of course, this success is not only mine, and my closest people, besides me, certainly deserve the same. The biggest support, not only in education, but in everything in general, is certainly my family, parents and sister, without whom I would not be where I am. Of course, throughout my entire schooling journey, my Harun was always by my side as the greatest critic and as the greatest supporter, who also has merit in this success mentioned today. And no less valuable, my closest friends were always there.

  •  Although it has become a negative trend to buy exams and diplomas, there are also more beautiful and positive things and golden students like Amile Mehić, who recommends the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering in Zenica to future colleagues.

Certainly, I recommend the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering in Zenica to anyone who wishes to enroll in a technical faculty. It is not only a matter of learning a predetermined subject, but also the possibility of being involved in various extracurricular activities through which you can further focus and profile yourself even more in what you want to do in the future. There are several professors at our faculty who really write beautiful stories, so become a part of them.

  •  Until yesterday a student, today a mechanical engineering graduate, what is the recipe for success?

A small correction, considering that I am continuing my education, I consider that I am still a student, but also a graduate in mechanical engineering. I would say that every successful person has his own recipe for success, because each of us perceives certain things in life differently. For everything in life, I think it is necessary to have faith in God, because without faith it is not. In addition to faith, love for what you do is unquestionably important, you must be persistent and persistent in your work, falls and certain failures happen to everyone, but it is important to get up again and continue even stronger, maybe it is stubbornness that you should also find in yourself . We can do almost nothing alone, so try to be a team player as much as possible. And finally, just be patient, because success is not something that comes overnight, but failure doesn't come overnight either, essentially you decide for yourself. I would also say that at any moment there will be a person who is more successful than you, actually it is success to rejoice in someone else's success.

  •  What are your future plans?

As I have already emphasized, my current plans are to continue my education, i.e. I enrolled in postgraduate studies, and at the same time, I also have a job in the profession, so there are many obligations that need to be combined, and I have to organize myself very well. none of this would work out.
