Statement of purpose
Name: Mohamed Sayed Abdo.
University: University of Cambridge.
Department: Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology.
As a chemical engineer specialized in petroleum refining, gas processing and petrochemicals engineering, I can plainly distinguish the important role this branch of engineering plays in our daily life. This importance comes from its direct dealing with fuel and energy sources, environmental aspects and biomedical industries, and their optimization. Also, I am overwhelmed by the desire to innovate, research, learn and teach. So, I am very keen on continuing my education in chemical engineering towards PhD degree. And I do believe this can be found through the PhD program in Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology department at University of Cambridge. I’m hoping to contribute and affect positively in the upcoming researches in the field of Nano-technology applications in catalysis, which is a very promising field with respect to our future needs of energy and fuel.

I am an Egyptian citizen, raised in a family having strong social values of hard working. I have always been studying hard during my childhood, and this enabled me of having a solid knowledge of fundamental sciences and mathematics, so I was ranked first allover Cairo governorate finishing my secondary stage of school in (2006) with “excellent” grade (100%). The enormous numbers of challenges thrown out by rapid development in science and technology have motivated me to choose engineering as my study field. I started my higher education in petroleum refining, gas processing and petrochemicals engineering through the Faculty of Petroleum and Mining Engineering, Suez Canal University, Egypt, graduated from it in (2011) with “very good” grade (75.2%). Subsequent to my undergraduate program, undertook a Master's program at the Department of Chemical Engineering, Cairo University, and I was awarded the degree in (2014) with “very good” grade (GPA= 3.1). My master’s...
