For Muneeb Ali, coming to the University of Aberdeen was not just a decision but a calling for his pursuit of a Master of Science in Process Safety, in which he graduated with distinction on Thursday 23 November 2023. Muneeb tells us more here.

“When I was looking at choices in my chosen field, the University of Aberdeen’s MSc in Process Safety stood as the only programme that demanded the deep-rooted process engineering background I possessed, built upon years of invaluable experience. Aberdeen’s energy heritage and the University of Aberdeen’s Safety Engineering Research Centre offered an ideal environment for my academic journey. The diverse range of courses fueled my passion and expanded my knowledge. It was a journey marked by dedication, culminating in my graduation with distinction – a testament to my unwavering commitment to excellence.

“The OPITO Piper Alpha Memorial Safety Scholarship played a transformative role during my time at Aberdeen. Beyond the financial assistance, it inspired me to excel, allowing me to focus completely on my studies. This support propelled me towards exceptional academic achievements, providing the wind beneath my wings as I navigated the challenges of higher education.

“To future students at the University of Aberdeen, I offer this advice: embrace change, let risks shape your experiences, and nurture your dreams. Every hurdle is a stepping stone, every achievement a victory worth celebrating. The University of Aberdeen experience is not just about academia; it’s about personal growth, resilience, the relationships and invaluable network you build, connecting you to a vast alumni community in the energy sector.

“I currently work in technical safety at Safetec UK Limited, a role made possible by the blend of my academic knowledge and the skills I refined during my studies. Headquartered in Trondheim, Norway, Safetec is a leading consultancy firm specializing in technical safety, human factors, environmental, and risk management. This esteemed organization has provided me with an exceptional opportunity to utilize my expertise and contribute significantly to the industry.

“Looking forward, my ambition extends to becoming a subject matter expert in consequence modeling. My journey doesn’t end here; it evolves into a quest for continuous learning and innovation.

“I owe a profound debt of gratitude to OPITO and University of Aberdeen for their support. The Piper Alpha Memorial Safety Scholarship was not just a financial aid; it was a catalyst for my dreams, empowering me to achieve far beyond my expectations. As I step into the future, I carry with me the lessons, friendships, and the spirit of a proud University of Aberdeen graduate, ready to make a difference in the world of process safety.”
