I admit that I had difficulty coping at the beginning, thinking that I may have made a wrong decision shifting; but because of the unwavering support and guidance of my ChE professors and DChE staff, I came through in the end. I am thankful to the Department of Chemical Engineering for nurturing me during my undergraduate years. I developed interests in research and manufacturing which I now practice in the industry. May you continue providing opportunities to aspiring chemical engineers who started from different degree programs like I did and remain zealous on molding them to become future innovators of the country.

During my board exam studies, I really don’t take time to learn new topics, I just have to relearn them because they had been taught to us already. The long, tiring, and difficult exams we have taken helped us to be persistent in very long examinations like the board exam. My instructors and professors in the Department of Chemical Engineering equipped me with lots of knowledge during my undergraduate years so I am very thankful to them.
