In addition, two petroleum engineering graduates, Albert Moukhametov and Haya Al-Borshaid, and current sophomore Sara Albanna shared their experiences with the incoming students and their parents, and highlighted the great opportunities available to them as members of the Texas A&M at Qatar Class of 2023.
