Dear Colleague,


I hope that you are safe and well.


I started working as an Aeronautical Engineer in Florida, USA as a trainee Flight Test engineer after graduation in 1995. I worked there for nine months before returning to the UK.


Following this, I switched careers to education and completed a PGCE from De Montfort University, Bedford and started a job as a Secondary Science Teacher specialising in Physics in England.


I continued with a passionate focus on teaching for over twenty years, gaining valuable experience as a middle manager in both academic and pastoral fields. I then, moved on my career to international teaching with posts in Abu Dhabi, Saudi Arabia and Hong Kong. I was inspired by STEAM subjects and Computing, and hence, currently, I am teaching those in a primary school.


My first passion in Aeronautical Engineering got fired up while teaching STEAM to students and I decided to pursue my master’s again. I have gained a lot of experience in the education field and skills such as constructive teamwork, effective communication, middle leadership strategy, adaptability, resilience, flexibility and risk taking to name a few.


I have developed into a holistic individual and continue to passionately believe in a positive frame of mind and in imparting British values, upon the younger generation that I meet in a classroom.


It will be great to speak with you in person and share our mutual philosophies on aeronautical engineering and Education.


Thank you.

Kind Regards

Shaz Janjua

Research opportunities

Dear Colleague,

I hope that you and your family are safe and well.

I have conducted research into exploring leadership in education. on the engineering side, I was the designer of a marine vessel combustor as part of the Cranfield University Group Design Project.

Currently, I am researching the use of active green hydrogen combustion in jet engines for air transportation, I am researching the Trent-XWB-97 jet engine and simulating it on Turbomatch jet engine performance software.

My further, research will entail the integration of this engine on the HVLER Cranfield concept cryogenic hydrogen aircraft for a mission from Hong Kong to London-Gatwick airport, following this, I shall investigate the possibility of a renewable green hydrogen production plant in Hong Kong for use in aviation.

Current activities

Dear Colleagues, 

I am currently, a Masters student researching on the possible use of green hydrogen as a main combustion fuel in jet engines.

This project will also include the design and development of infra-structure in creating the required volume of green hydrogen, using only renewable resources.


In Education I was a consultant for CfBT working as an advisor for the Abu Dhabi Education Council.

I was a volunteer in a company in Florida, USA, that had a contract with the USAF, I was involved with the noise reduction of the KC-1135 aircraft.
