About Samwel Semakula

Phone verified

I completed my MSc degree in mechanical engineering Cum Laude and I am pursuing my PhD studies at the Discipline of Mechanical Engineering, University of KwaZulu-Natal. The registration for my PhD studies commenced effective January 2019. I submitted intent of submission in September 2020 and already submitted my thesis for examination on 1st February 2021. I have demonstrated outstanding intellectual ability, aptitude for research and resourcefulness in my chosen field of study, which saw me graduate within one year of study Cum Laude. I have always performed my research duties with full dedication, satisfaction, and with appreciation for continued professional education. I am focused, hardworking, a team player and always willing to learn. I am also a team player and work cohesively with other members of my research group (Green Energy Group) with high levels of honesty and integrity. I have skills in advanced welding and fabrication, experimental set-up, computer modelling, good communication skills, academic writing techniques and use of e-resources. To date I have published twenty-three journal papers and presented papers in three international conference within the duration of my study and current PhD candidature. Currently, as a Research Assistant, under the supervision of Prof Freddie Inambao my roles involve helping to supervise undergraduate in final year projects, and masters level students in engineering research methods, analysis, data and publishing. Besides I was appointed as a lab demonstrator last year (2020) for ENME2FH1 taught by Prof G. Smith. Among other duties assigned as a research assistant to my supervisor was to generate suitable project topics, which could translate to master’s level upon completion of undergraduate studies. With advanced skills in welding and fabrication, I will ensure student fabrication activities are safe, time conscious and effective.
