Student Profile(s)

Kudakwashe Chingono

I had done Applied Chemistry in my undergrad and wanted to progress my career in the direction of Sustainable Process Technology development. Doing an MSc in Chemical Process Engineering was quite the logical next step, and I was supported by the Beit Trust-University of Leeds Scholarship to do just that. I chose the University of Leeds because of the high university rankings, which translate to great learning facilities with experts in the field and being part of some great research.

I came in with an intention to learn and grow, and my course facilitated that. There was always something new to grasp and a way to apply it. This was one of the best aspects. I also enjoyed the exposure on how real-life problems were solved from an engineering point of view.

The highly collaborative and engaging learning environment has helped a lot, as it taught some key soft skills that have been useful so far. Prior to the Covid-19 lockdown, I was part of the Leeds University Consulting Society and I gained some exposure to business and consultancy in doing case studies. It was interesting.
