University of Tulsa alumnus Ahmed Khogeer has received the American Institute of Chemical Engineers Fellowship Award, the highest honor bestowed to members. He is the AIChE’s first fellow from Saudi Arabia.
Khogeer (MS ’98) was recognized with the fellowship certificate, pin and plaque at the AIChE 2017 spring meeting in San Antonio, Texas. He is a senior project engineer with Saudi Aramco’s Special Kingdom Projects Department and specializes in catalytic cracking. Khogeer has 27 years of experience at Saudi Aramco in refining, projects, lubes, facilities planning, and research and development.
Fellowship status is attained by election after sponsorship from a fellow AIChE member and support from at least five other fellows. Supporters must demonstrate a nominee’s competencies as well as the knowledge and services he or she contributes to the field of chemical engineering.
Khogeer has been a member of AIChE since 1998. He is a founding member of King Abdullah University of Science and Technology and is registered as a consultant engineer in Saudi Arabia — the Kingdom’s highest level of professional engineering.
Khogeer also is a recipient of the Distinguished Services Award from the Fuels and Petrochemicals Division of AIChE.
