Brilliant Nigerian Lady bags first-class degree in Chemical Engineering from UK university, celebrates achievement

An exceptional Nigerian woman named Mervin Azeta has achieved tremendous success after graduating with a first-class degree in Chemical Engineering and Reservoir Engineering.

Mervin Azeta who now works as a Lead Engineer with Schlumberger narrated that growing up she was told Engineering is not quite a discipline for girls. “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 wrote on LinkedIn.

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

Following her successes as an Engineer in the Oil and Gas industry, Mervin Azeta noted that girls should not be discouraged from becoming Engineers. “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.”

Mervin Azeta received an award as Imperial College London Emerging Alumni Leader.

She advised everyone with a dream of becoming an Engineer to pursue their dreams and not be deterred in any way. “And always remember, you can be such a great #Engineer, have a great #Life, and have a fun-cum-rewarding #Career, too! Don’t let anyone or anything stop you,” she said.

Mervin Azeta narrated that she was inspired to become an Engineer at the age of 8 after witnessing the death of her pregnant aunt due to a power outage in the labour room. “Naturally, Mervin was heartbroken, but it also started to stir something inside of her and she began to ask questions, per Imperial College London report.

“When it came to picking what I wanted to study at university, I was quick to opt for engineering as I knew engineers were the people solving problems and the challenges faced by society,” Mervin narrated.

She celebrated the National Engineering day in the UK noting that she remains resolute to solve the energy challenges in Nigeria.

“Today is #NationalEngineeringDay in the UK, and I have just been reminded of a reason I chose to be an #Engineer – to solve the #energy challenges of #Nigeria, #Africa and the world at large, whilst empowering the next generation of doers, leaders, and thinkers with quality #STEM education,” she said.
