Last term when we studied Microprocessors with Dr Moustafa, it was fine, even though I wasn’t much into the subject itself, but I saw something new in Dr Moustafa that I wanted to learn from. This term, with Embedded Systems and Operations Research, I learned dozens of new things, new techniques and new ways.
And even though I totally disagree with the ‘overload’ strategy in CSED, I finally understood Dr Moustafa's point, and actually started applying it to myself: “to prioritize my to-do list and do what is more important to me”…
And when we complained by the end of this term, I was so happy he listened to us and told us “Whatever you want, the most important thing is that you understand what you study”. It showed the real intentions of what he did all year long, and it showed a real kind heart. That is why I believe Dr Moustafa is one of those people who left a deep mark in our lives and minds… Also, he was the only professor who shared with us the first “CSED 2010” party!! It certainly means a lot to us!
I enjoyed embedded systems … I suppose we all did… I am glad we studied stuff no one else does, like Android. I benefited a lot from Operations Research; I wish I had more time to invest in it! I even started looking on Wikipedia to know the solution of the Prisoner’s Dilemma before it was explained in class!!
I believe this sentence that was once said to me by Engineer Reem Youssry: “Those who don’t take undergraduate courses with Dr Moustafa lose a lot”… Yes, I’ve lost much health, weight and mood because of the CSED overload, but all in all, looking on the brighter side, I like what I've gained and I am happy and so satisfied with myself… :)
So thanks Dr Moustafa!
Thanks for creating a change!

And here comes my part...
To Dr Moustafa Amin , our university professor who taught us Microprocessors, Embedded Systems and Operations Research (and Networks in the future :) ).
You are ‘embedded’ in our lives and minds,
You taught us things of all different kinds.
We are always overloaded by much to do,
Fighting deadlines and striving through,
Not being able to live … constantly complaining…
But in the end, it was what we’re gaining;
We’re now broad-minded, more educated,
More ambitious and more goal-oriented…
You’re an example to us; a role model
You showed us how to think and model,
How to create ideas that are brand-new,
How to be committed and love what we do,
How to be unique and brave to talk in class,
How not to let any tiny detail just pass…
All our lives are changed because of you
No! I’d rather say “Thanks to you”!
We wish you all the best from our hearts
For all the good and even bad parts
Thanks for being the great pioneer,
You’re our friend who is so dear!
Doctor Moustafa, you’re a star that sparks
And don’t forget the bonus marks ;)
Just kidding! :)
