Muhammad Nur Ali Akbar is one of the brightest young talents in the exciting world of Earth Sciences and Engineering, and he seems to prove his excellent talent almost every month.

After his victory at the Annual Student Energy Congress in Zagreb, Croatia, and at the Meeting of Young Geoscientists 2019 in Ráckeve, Hungary, Muhammad did it again.

During the Student Paper Contest (SPC) 14 regional contests are coordinated at the undergraduate, master and PhD levels, embracing the whole world. Students from all over the world compete against each other in their own region for the opportunity to get to the International Student Paper Contest.

Contestants enter an abstract of their paper and they have to present their work during the competition. The winners proceed to the International competition automatically.

Muhammad won the first prize in the Student Paper Contest of the SPE (Society of Petroleum Engineers) for the European region that was held in Cracow, Poland, between 9 and 12 April 2019. He proved his amazing abilities by producing the best paper with the best presentation in the whole Europe.

After his victory, it is obvious that he has been invited to join the world championship of SPE Student Paper Contest in Alberta, Canada between 30 September and 2 October 2019 where he will be the representative of Europe.

Congratulations, Muhammad, and good luck for Alberta!
