‘It was an unforgettable experience because I could learn directly from the experts.’ Chandra Fadhilla Amiin, MSc Petroleum Engineering, Imperial College London

In our film, we spoke with Chandra Fadhillah Amiin, who completed his master’s degree in Petroleum Engineering at Imperial College London.

Chandra is currently working as a petroleum engineer in Pertamina EP, a Jakarta-based state-owned company which focuses on the oil and gas industry. 

Chandra shares words of advice with Clement Feraldy, who is currently taking an integrated master’s in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Southampton, which involves two years in Southampton’s Malaysia campus, and two years in the UK. 

 Clement is enjoying campus life in Southampton and praises the support he gets from academic staff. He is dreaming of developing electric cars back home in Indonesia.

'The lecturers in Southampton are really supportive. They really care about the students and want us to succeed.' Clement Feraldy, MEng Mechanical Engineering student at the University of Southampton
