Meet Salim Abdi, an AGF Scholar from Algeria who pursued a MS in Metallurgical Engineering at Polytechnique Montreal

“AL Ghurair scholarship meant a lot to me during my master’s and after I graduated. It provided me with the financial and professional security I needed to fully pursue my goals and have the academic profile I wanted. Therefore, I believe it’s important to give back at this stage of my life. ”

Salim graduated from Polytechnique Montreal in 2020. After receiving 4 different offers from top world universities to continue his PhD, he decided to enroll at Eindhoven University of Technology, Netherlands  to pursue his studies in Integrated Photonics.

Salim is looking forward to continuing his studies and opening his own Tech startup to benefit the community with his qualifications.
