Project Description

Malika Alimzhanova

Fire Engineer

MSc Fire Safety Engineering, IMFSE; BSc Marine Engineering, Kazakh-British Technical University

  • Where did you start out your career?

I am just starting my career in fire engineering, but I have some earlier experience in marine and process engineering.

  • Why did you choose a career in fire engineering?

During my apprenticeship time at sea, I realized how complex the fire phenomenon is and how important fire safety is; especially when you are in the middle of an ocean and can rely only on yourself.

  • What appealed about Semper?

Having some experience with big companies, I wanted to join a relatively smaller and less “corporate” business, where you can easily interact with colleagues and be actively involved in the end-to-end processes.

  • What’s your biggest achievement?

I believe my biggest achievement is yet to come, but by now is getting scholarships for both of my degrees and crossing the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian oceans.

  • What would be your dream project to work on?

My dream project would be bringing fire safety engineering to my home country.
