Ph.D in Chemical Engineering

It's confirmed that I'm going to be a pH.D student in Chemical Engineering this coming July. I've gotten my pH.D offer letter from Graduate School of Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM). I've submitted it to my faculty in order for them to process my study leave. I'm not going to reveal my pH.D topic here. However, it will be something almost related to green energy and/or sustainable development. It will be in the field of catalysis and reaction engineering. I'll be developing a process and a reactor. I'll also be studying something that is entirely new. Nobody has done this work before. Hopefully, I can later claim novelty in my research.

It is most likely that my co-supervisor will be a professor from Finland. I'm going to do a short period attachment during my pH.D studies in Finland. It can be up to 9 months there. Hopefully with such attachment, UTM can establish some extend of international collaboration with reputable universities.

In the other hand, my wife will be finishing her pH.D this June. She's also doing her pH.D in chemical engineering in the area of separation engineering, specifically in progressive freeze concentration. She has already published numerous papers, a national book chapter and an international book chapter. I hope she can submit her thesis as soon as possible.

What about you? Are you going to continue your post graduate studies?

I am a final year student myself, but I don't see myself pursuing post graduate studies, at least not for the time being.

My CGPA is probably too low to even consider for it anyway T-T
