Studying at Cambridge

Muhammad Abbas 2009-10

Before joining the course I had worked as a Design Engineer on large scale oil and gas projects working to deliver projects on time with in acceptable quality and budget. I was working at the higher end of the value chain but I was feeling a huge gap in terms of what I am doing and what I could possibly do in order to improve the world through engineering. It was important for me to get a break, do such a course with a group of exciting multidisciplinary students around the world.

I have made a lot of new friends and learned things that I may never have learned while working on demanding projects serving major clients in the industry. I am now working in the Infrastructure division of KEO International Consultants in Doha, Qatar. Here I am working on water transmission and distribution projects. But that's the beginning of a new chapter and I will be looking forward to lead the way to a sustainable future in whatever way I can.
