Hussain is currently Space Science and Robotics at Aberystwyth University, after studying a combination of A-levels and BTEC engineering at WMG Academy, with plans for a career in humanoid or space robotics. Hussain said: “From a very young age, I knew I wanted to specialise in STEM. WMG Academy helped me build on the knowledge I had already from being home educated. The facilities were top notch! The teachers certainly didn’t lack in giving us motivation nor patience with answering my numerous questions. I’m very excited about what my future holds.”
