Why did you decide to study the MSc in Petroleum Engineering at HWU?

Coming from a geology background, I needed a training to give me the opportunity and experience to break into the already competitive oil & gas industry as an engineer. The most beautiful thing about Heriot-Watt and IPE for me was the opportunity to be tutored, partnered with and mentored by established consultants/professionals in the industry. The group and individual projects were just awesome.

What was my experience of studying your Masters at Heriot-Watt University?

In two words I would say ‘interestingly challenging'. It was for me an opportunity to explore new concepts while working in a very amiable multicultural team with diverse skills affording me the opportunity to learn, develop my career and enrich my network.

Can you tell us a bit about what you're currently doing?

I am currently working as a drilling engineer responsible for drilling an array of wells to both explore and develop oilfields in the Niger Delta of Nigeria. It's so interesting to finally get a chance to apply acquired skills to productive ends in the ‘real world'. It can only get better!
