Student Profile(s)

Patricia Fleitas Calzadilla
2135.JPG

University of Aberdeen is located in the most prestigious place for Oil & Gas business. The combination between a prestigious academia and industry was the principal reason for choosing the University of Aberdeen as my first choice for my career development.

I had the opportunity to have teachers with over 30 years of experience in the UK North Sea area which helped me to understand the current and future engineering solutions to address the new challenges ahead the Oil and Gas industry worldwide. Furthermore, I made very good friends from Greece, Cyprus and Colombia and we had unforgettable times studying long hours at the library, sharing our limited student budget and having a lot of fun while learning other languages and cultures.
The locals in Aberdeen are very open with the international students and despite the fact that English is not our native language, people made an effort to understand us and tried their best to make us feel like at home.

The MSc Oil & Gas Engineering is very wide and covers the entire value chain from upstream to downstream operations. My programme help me to understand the current and future technologies, safety applications, economic policies, project management and energy implications into the trading markets that are implicit into the Oil and Gas industry. Thanks to the knowledge acquired, I have more effective work teams and I can give a valuable opinion on areas that are outside of my fist degree (Process Engineering).

Thanks to the advices of the career services in Aberdeen University, I got a summer placement job in Wood Group Frontier and after complete my studies they offered me a position as Process Engineer in Aberdeen. I have been travelling, receiving trainings and getting more responsibilities in the company.

Aberdeen University will give you the opportunity to gain knowledge and networking with people from the energy industry. The teachers and staff are there to make the most of your student experience and after completing your studies you will go wherever you will decide to go.

Aberdeen University is not just an institution. It is the first step to professional and intellectual growth and after completed your studies the well established recognition of Aberdeen University will help you to open the doors of the career development that you are dreaming for.

The reputable courses offered, which are tailored towards the Energy Industry, and the traditional nature of the University made it ideal for my needs. I was motivated by the strong presence of International students at the Institution, creating a truly international campus. The University’s ongoing success in Research & Development was also a source of attraction for me.

I enjoyed the quality of staff, the serenity of the academic environment and the City of Aberdeen as well as the great opportunity to meet and interact with experienced industry personnel.

My degree in Oil & Gas Engineering gave me a great opportunity in the Energy Industry.

I graduated in 2008 and my first opportunity came when I relocated to the USA where I joined Halliburton Energy Services as a Directional Drilling Field Engineer. I have since moved on and am now presently working for Baker Hughes Inc. in the Gulf of Mexico as a Directional Driller.

I drill extended reach wells, exploratory, developmental, re-entry wells, multi-lateral well pads, horizontal and directional wells. Referencing Well Plans, I ensure set targets are met using mud motors and Rotary Steerable System and the relevant calculations.

I would recommend the University of Aberdeen to others because of the proven track record of achievements as well as the relationship the University has with the Energy Industry thereby preparing students for a fulfilling career upon graduation.
