A talented, driven and conscientious Chemical/ Process Engineer, equipped to be an additional asset to a company that continuously strives to deliver safe, sustainable and innovative technological solutions that meet rising global needs and satisfy clients’ requirements while meeting organisational objectives.

Career Aspirations

As a recent graduate with a zest to kick start my professional career I aspire to gain further industrial experience as a Junior Engineer or Engineer in Training through gradual increased level of responsibilities in one of the following industries – mining, pharmaceutical, petroleum, FMCG, wastewater treatment or business services. This will lead to my obtainment of an ECSA registration as a Chemical Engineering Technologist.

Work & Volunteer Experience

I have a one year’s industry experience in water treatment where I interchangeably worked in the laboratory and on site. In the laboratory I tested samples to ensure that they adhere to the SANAS standards. I also performed laboratory scale test works to improve efficiency of treatment processes. On site I monitored and operated the production process. I also carried out maintenance on process equipment.

Other Interests

I enjoy helping learners and students through tutoring and career advice. I love physical activities such as hiking, jogging and exercise.
