Testimonial: Dr. Emmanuel Egbogah

Former Special Advisor to the President of Nigeria on Petroleum Matters. Canadian Commonwealth Scholarship Program Awardee (1973-1975)

University of Alberta (Petroleum Engineering, M.Sc.)

I have benefited immensely from studying and researching in Canada, having attended McGill University in Montreal, Quebec and the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Alberta under the Commonwealth Scholarship program. The quality of education in Canada is extremely high and produces well-rounded individuals for effective participation and contribution to national development of the graduate’s home country. This makes Canada an enviable destination of choice for study and research. This is the very reason why a large number of students from all over the world now flock to Canada for the opportunity of world class education.

The curriculum in Canada is multidimensional in content and scope, offering every ingredient of human capital development and therefore able to produce technically competent and culturally/socially balanced individuals. The various and numerous inter-school academic meetings and conferences, professional society events, including workshops, seminars, conferences and field trips and cultural activities help to establish and enhance one’s overall supportive professional network. Studying in Canada opened the door to my professional and career development opportunities.
