In its purest form, graduate studies provide a unique opportunity that offers advanced knowledge, insight, discoveries and wisdom that results in significant, persistent and beneficial effects on the career of any scholar. This is far from the general engineering knowledge one mainly gets from his first-degree programme. Hence, I wish to study petroleum engineering in your graduate school (University of Alaska, Fairbanks) not only to benefit from your highly acclaimed engineering programme but also to enable me gain advanced knowledge and insight that is required to pursue my vision of becoming a petroleum engineer of choice in the oil and gas world.
With the field proven thirst to make impact in the petroleum world which I develop during my six months industrial training with ELF Petroleum Nigeria Limited (TOTALFINAELF), I strongly believe that this research based graduate programme in Petroleum Engineering (M.Sc) will provide the professional background knowledge that is required for my career goal.
I am OGUGBUE, CHINENYE CHIBUIKE EXCEL, an energetic young man of about twenty three (23) years old. I am excellent in academics, well-behaved, disciplined, very neat, hardworking and a team player.
My highest educational qualification is a B. Eng (2003) first class honours in Petroleum Engineering obtained from Federal University of Technology, Owerri, Imo State Nigeria. I had a sound senior secondary school education and General Certificate in Education result (1996) at Ngwa High School, Abayi, Aba, Abia State, Nigeria. In addition, I sat for and passed my first school leaving certificate examination after completing my elementary education at Abayi – Umuocham Community Primary School 1 Abayi, Aba, Abia State, Nigeria in 1990.
