The University Medal in Petroleum Engineering
The School is pleased to congratulate Zeyad Ibrahim O Habiballah on being awarded the University Medal in Petroleum Engineering!
The University Medal is one of the most distinguished awards to be bestowed on an undergraduate student, as the award of a Medal indicates outstanding academic performance, e.g. a degree awarded with Honours significantly above the minimum requirements for Honours Class 1. During his studies at UNSW, Zeyad has also been the recipient of multiple School Awards and Prizes including the prize for Outstanding performance in the Year 2 of the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Petroleum Engineering program, Outstanding performance in the Year 3 of the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Petroleum Engineering program and The Faculty of Engineering Dean's Award for the best performance in Year 1, 2 or 3 in the Bachelor of Engineering program in both 2019 and 2020!
Zeyad is currently working with his sponsor, Saudi Aramco, as a Production Engineer. Saudi Aramco is one of the largest energy companies in the world.
He commenced his studies in Petroleum engineering at UNSW in 2017 and says that “Petroleum Engineering is a thought-provoking discipline as you engage in a number of other studies including science, economics, mathematics and statistical analysis. It involves solving real world problems, a passion of mine, which contribute to a more productive society. The opportunity to work both in-office and on-site, in addition to the different disciplines involved, provides a petroleum engineer with different occupations to work in.”
Of his experience at UNSW Zeyad comments “UNSW has a vibrant community displayed by the numerous activities and clubs students can participate in. The university also encourages research, and together with the terrific academic staff and research programs, students experience the academic side of engineering.”
Once again well done Zeyad and wishing you all the best for your future!
