Enhancing engineers: Petrofac awards four new fellowships to talented postgraduate students

Four talented engineers who are about to start their postgraduate studies have each received a prestigious Petrofac/Royal Academy of Engineering Fellowship.

Now in their seventh year, the Petrofac Fellowships develop the concept of the Enhanced Graduate Engineer, combining a full-time Masters’ level course with additional learning and development opportunities, such as a company-sourced major project, a mentor or a work placement. Each successful applicant receives £9,000 funding towards their Masters’ level course.

The Petrofac Fellowships were presented today at a reception at the Royal Academy of Engineering. At the reception, senior representatives of Petrofac and the Academy met past, present and newly awarded fellows, and the 2014 recipients of the Petrofac Fellowship gave a brief presentation of their project work.

Petrofac Group Chief Executive, Ayman Asfari FREng, who is a Fellow of the Academy, said: “Today’s event marks the seventh anniversary of our involvement with the Fellowship programme, which has been mutually beneficial for both the Petrofac mentors and the Petrofac Fellows, some of whom have since been employed within our Group. I am delighted to welcome four new graduate engineers as Petrofac Fellows and I look forward to watching their progression throughout the year.

“The Academy fulfills a vital role in ensuring the promotion of engineering as a career, and our partnership is helping turn youngsters’ engineering aspirations into reality in the form of an enduring and fulfilling career.”

This year’s recipients of the Petrofac Fellowships are: Edosa Enabulele, Irene Rios, Moses Makombe and Abdi Ismail Mohamed.
