Young African Lady Graduates From UK University With First-Class In Chemical Engineering

Meet Mervin Azeta, a Nigerian lady who has just achieved a great feat after graduating with a first-class degree in chemical engineering and reservoir engineering.

Mervin Azeta narrated that while she was growing up, she was told that engineering is not a profession for girls but now she works as a Lead Engineer with Schlumberger.

In her words on LinkedIn, she wrote “To think I was once told that engineering isn’t quite a discipline for girls; they would normally drop off after a few years of undergrad study. Well, look how far I have come by God’s infinite grace, love and mercy.”

She earned a first-class Bachelor’s degree from the University of Benin, Nigeria majoring in Chemical Engineering and minoring in Reservoir Engineering. She then proceeded to the Imperial College London for her Master’s degree and earned a distinction.

She in her words, tried to encourage girls that it is possible to become an engineer even as a girl. She said “I have had a fantastic career as an engineer, an energy professional, working with a company that attracts the best, bold and brightest to drive energy innovation for a balanced planet, SLB-and helping many more women, across the globe, thrive in #STEM disciplines.”

Furthermore, she said “So to that girl or young woman who wants to address some of the most difficult and pressing challenges of this century, improve lives and generally make the world a better, healthier and safer place, think #Engineering.”

Congratulations to Mervin Azeta on this great achievement!!
