The reputation of Hyderabad as a city of Pearls, historic building with minarets, Kebabs and Biryani is fine but it is also home to a 14-year-old, who is teaching design and applied sciences to the students undertaking B.Tech and M.Tech courses from different universities.
This young Einstein Mohammed Hasan Ali’s knowledge and communication skills surpass those of the engineering students and other professionals; he teaches embedded systems, internet of things and robotics to the students of electronic engineering.
Hasan not only gives a tough competition to professors, scientists and engineers but also imparts skill development classes to the B.Tech and M.Tech students free of cost.
This bespectacled whizkid whose family lives in Malakpet area of the city, has also developed a humanoid robot that can respond to voice commands. The Robot remembers commands to follow the marked path.
Mohammad Hasan Ali in his labrotary
Fitted with the voice playback module, motor diver, receiver transmitter and fixed speaker, using arduino programming Hassan’s robot is a huge success for him.
This child prodigy developed the robot in a span of just 14 days and is now being used by him as a “serving robot.”
No wonder, Hasan is planning to do his post graduation from Purdue University in the US.
Hassan attends big conferences where he is treated as a scientist, educationist and an entrepreneur. Full of confidence, this child prodigy is a head turner wherever he goes.
Hasan said he was motivated to use his intrinsic understanding and skills for the engineering students after watching a video that showed how Indian engineers have to do sundry jobs abroad. He realized though qualified, these job seekers lacked the understanding of the application of the skills and communication skills.
He decided to change all that and offered his services to engineering institutes free of cost. He spends three hours teaching others. He said at a conference, “everyone should teach others to make the country great.”
His father spotted the genius in his son when one day he found him calculating measurements at a construction site at the age of 11. His father thereafter started encouraging him.
Hasan honed his skills with the help of online tutorials on computer programming and AutoCad. With a passion to share his knowledge with other students he started teaching engineering students with confidence and poise that will amaze any senior professor or engineer.
In the last two years, Hasan has trained 7,000 engineering students. During the Covid-19 pandemic he took online classes.
He has also done projects in Telangana’s prestigious IIIT on self- driven cars.
Today the situation is such that students even from top engineering colleges in the city come to him to clear their doubts and learn the rudiments or advanced topics in their subjects.
Otherwise Hassan is a regular school going child, who loves to play.
He teaches engineers about designing and drafting and . He has done hundreds of projects .
