Masters Chemical Engineering, Middle-Eastern

April 5, 2016


I am a 28 year old woman from Kuwait who is typical of a new generation of Middle-Eastern women that are striking out in the business world and carving out a niche for themselves. Physical Science has been my special area of life investigation for many years, since childhood. Chemistry, in particular, has always been my mystery of choice. For this reason, and my fervid desire to help my country and the rest of the Middle-East to develop economically, I have my heart set on the long term goal of opening up my own factory and manufacturing chemicals.

At this point in my career, I need preparation for and experience in the chemical industry that will serve as a foundation for life-long learning and investment in chemicals and the great promise that they hold for development and lifestyle improvements. I deeply admire the research taking place at at XXXX University in particular and I hope very much to attend your program since I see it as representing the academic cutting edge of all of the many things that I am most eager to learn.

Currently employed as a Petroleum Engineer with XXXX Oil Company, I work with the drilling team and I am in charge of the Cement Unit. Beginning in December of 2009, I spent the first three months with XXXX Oil working alongside the drilling operation teams, monitoring and handling the rigs at the same time that I attended training courses at Kuwait University. For two years now, I have been working with the Cement Engineering Unit. My position includes cement job programming & slurry designing as well as regularly updating our Standardized Cementing Policy.

I particularly enjoy that part of my job where I have an opportunity to participate in planning, reviewing proposals from Cement companies, analyzing job performance and coordinating laboratory testing. My colleagues have complimented my natural abilities in the area of resource allocation, cost estimation, and invoicing procedures.

I find my greatest joy helping my company to adopt new technology after appropriate evaluation and cost-benefit analysis. I really get excited about job forecasts, working closely with Planning and Operations. It is important for me to stay proactive in my constant scanning for potential cementing issues, and I stay current about all new technologies that are relevant for cementing.

I am convinced that XXXX University represents the cutting-edge education in my field and will provide me with the optimal foundation for advancement in my field, petroleum engineering.

I thank you for your consideration of my application to your program.
