Kashmeel Bisseru Graduates Top of his Chemical Engineering Class
Chemical Engineering student, Kashmeel Bisseru graduated summa cum laude, the only student in his class to achieve such honours.
Bisseru developed a passion for engineering from a very young age and was determined his career would be in that field.
‘From research I conducted in high school, I found that engineering in general was a degree that combined my aptitude for mathematics and scientific creativity into a comprehensive package,’ he said. ‘My choice of chemical engineering in particular, was that it unlocked several doorways allowing one access to a diverse number of industries.’
With his parents as his role models, Bisseru said that while the degree was tough he learned a lot about himself and is grateful for the experience. Now he is looking forward to the world of work and gaining the necessary experience in the engineering industry.
Playing and watching soccer helped Bisseru relax in between studying for the notoriously demanding degree. He also set time aside to assist his younger brother, Nikyle, who registered for a Mechanical Engineering degree at UKZN this year. Both brothers are former pupils of Durban High School and were Dux of the school and top achievers within KwaZulu-Natal for their matric exams.
