I am an open-minded individual who has gained a theoretical and practical approach to problem solving in the time spent in tertiary. I am very optimistic and I have a drive to see things through to completion and overcome any circumstance. I am looking for a graduate programme where I can contribute to, with the knowledge I have gained through my academic years. I want to be challenged so that I can improve my knowledge and experience in the field of metallurgy. EDUCATION


2013-2018: BEng (Metallurgical engineering), University of Pretoria

Majors: Material sciences, Physical/ Mechanical metallurgy, Pyrometallurgy, Hydrometallurgy, Minerals processing, Thermodynamics, Electrochemistry and Welding.

Research project: Interaction of sulphur with a freeze lining from a smelter furnace. Secondary

2012: National senior certificate, Rantobeng senior secondary school. WORK EXPERIENCE

2018-2019: SAIW Centre for Welding engineering at UP- Equipment testing, sample preparation for TEM and commissioning of a Jet polishing machine. This was a part time work during vacation period from 2018 November to 2019 January.


Cut samples and prepare them to be polished with a Jet polishing machine to acquire TEM specimens. Sample preparation included mounting of the samples, grinding them using emery grinding media and measuring them using a micrometre and checking the exposed surface under an optical microscope regularly. I compiled a detailed technical report at the end of the project. This experience taught me patience, persistence and paying attention to detail. It helped the company in acquiring a detailed experimental procedure for sample preparation and the use of the jet polishing machine and also, the knowledge of what to avoid so as to get better results.
