Congratulations William for your Masters Defence

William is a master student from Kenya. I first met him when I was lecturing Plant and Chemical Safety for Masters. He is also an academic staff from a university in Kenya.

Fast forward to yesterday (28th july 2016), I was his examiner for his Chemical Engineering Master Dissertation. It should be a fast Master defense examination since he is in the Chemical Engineering Mixed-Mode program. However, the examination was stretched to 3 hours. That’s quite long for a Mixed-Mode program. It was not because the quality of work that is not good. It is in fact due to the fact that he has done SO MUCH WORK, and presented such a huge amount of result in his dissertation. All of us thought that he has done a work almost similar to a full time master student or even more than a full time master student. If he add few more elements into his work, it can be a Ph.D quality.

I can just say WELL DONE! You should continue to do your Ph.D. Keep up the good work.
