SCME Students were joined by the school’s alumnus, Kamal Mustafa, on October 9, 2012. Mr. Mustafa is currently enrolled in a Masters degree in Energy Systems. The focus of his lecture was one of the deciding points of a student’s degree: the Final Year Project (FYP).
Kamal Mustafa shed light on the general considerations and the basic checklist for FYP completion. He did so by quoting an example of his own, much credited FYP by the title of “Design of a Coal Gas – Urea Complex pilot plant”, which his group undertook under supervision of Dr. Samar Mubarakmand himself. From this topic, the students were able to visualize the areas where their theoretical knowledge would gain application. Mr. Mustafa was particular about the motivation and excitement behind a project, deeming it to be priceless.
The event proved profitable for all students giving them an early head start, specifically benefiting those who intended to do a plant design project.
