    My name is Mohammad Goodarzi and I am a citizen of Iran.I received a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Bucknell University in 1989. I have been a translator and writer for the Iranian English language newspaper ‘Iran Daily since 1997’. I chose this field because of the comprehensive education that I enjoyed at BU. However, I have not lost interest in engineering despite passage of many years since my graduation. I still firmly believe that BU offers the best undergraduate degree in the world.

    Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this comment.
