My Admission Statement of purpose

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
As a child, I had a fondness for older people, one of who was Uncle Ineh. At that time, he was an undergraduate student of Petroleum Engineering at the University of Port-Harcourt. I will make reference solely to a point which got me attached to Uncle Ineh. From carton boxes we made houses and cars and found ways to make the cars move. This stint, coupled with my aptitude for basic science and mathematics, created in me the zeal to understand fundamental physical principles governing the behavior of materials and how things work.
Though I applied for Petroleum Engineering for my undergraduate studies, I was offered admission to study Gas Engineering. My stay was however short-lived as I was transferred to Chemical Engineering, due to the dis-accreditation of the department of Gas Engineering by the Nigerian Universities Commission, stating its lack of facilities to groom reliable engineers in that field.
Through my undergraduate program, I was introduced to theoretical concepts widely used in the Chemical industry as I went through courses such as chemical process calculations, reaction engineering, process design, heat transfer and mass transfer. I also attended a number of seminar programs at my alma mater and even after graduation to keep me abreast with my long-term goal to become a professional consultant in the Oil and Gas industry.
On a practical level, I visited some Oil and Gas companies, one of which was an unforgettable visit to the Warri refinery corporation. There, I was exposed to the process of automation, which was part of one of my undergraduate courses, process control engineering. It was just awesome how an entire refinery was being controlled by a few operators monitoring the various critical parameters.
For a country with enormous potential in the global oil and gas market, Process Systems Engineers would be of utmost importance in serving the needs of its vast population’s economic dependence on the Oil and Gas

    I believe that petroleum and natural gas engineering or is the perfect major and career for me. Petroleum and Natural Gas engineering otherwise abbreviated as PNGE to me is one of the most interesting, in depth, and overall the best suite of engineering for myself, not to mention that is where the booming money is. I am also no stranger to the natural gas industries. I had grown up on rural farm in Pennsylvania about 35 miles south of Pittsburgh. Around six years ago a natural gas drilling company bought some property rights off of my grandfather to get the go-ahead to drill on certain parts of our property. This was the first time I was exposed to what the natural gas industries could do and had much potential, and from that point on I knew what I wanted to attend college for, PNGE.…

    Individuals take engineering as something distance to their lives due to rigorous courses to get through. As some would say that it is not worth it, other clever individuals have figured this out. To be a chemical engineer, an individual explores and takes on other sciences to create important products to better peoples lives. As Mark and Sherri Devaney stated, “…Chemical Engineers are charged primarily with finding ways to put science and engineering principles to work…” with their purpose being, “…to help corporations and organizations create useful, cost effective products that will benefit consumers…”.(pg. 43) As it was brought up earlier, to be a chemical engineer, one must apply other subjects and fields. It is typical to begin these processes earlier in life. “High school students interested in chemical engineering should take all of the mathematics and science courses that their schools offer.” As explained by Ferguson. (pg. 44) While one is solely not focused on one particular area, the variety of knowledge that an individual should obtain would benefit that person in a plethora of ways. An individual should take on chemical engineering due to requirement of diverse knowledge, the striving to better them self, and to increase their potential.…

    For my career path I have chosen to become a chemical engineer. A chemical engineer is considered in my opinion to be a universal engineer, exploring all facets of life. The responsibilities of a chemical engineer can vary but first start with a problem that leads to an idea and then a hypothesis. Following those first steps includes a lot of research involving many check points along the way to ensure the most desirable outcome. A chemical engineer must also engage in a wide array of analyses, which include but are not limited to data, engineering design and test findings. Last and definitely not least is you must be able to display an ability to work with other people not just in your field but in a wide range of other views that may include lectures to your peers as well as the public regarding your research and findings.…

    I had chosen Applied Chemistry & Chemical Engineering to study over others since I really have a strong affection for this very practical field after my 9th grade in high school, when I had to choose Science, Arts or Commerce as a major field to study. I started to correlate the things happening surrounding me with Chemistry. Some of those were very correct but with the help of my teachers I learned a lot of new theories on that time.…
