Introducing the first Emirati female engineer

Azeizah Al Hassani, an artist, athlete, entrepreneur and most impressively, the first Emirati female engineer in the field of unconventional resources, at ADNOC Group and Total Energies—a woman who redefined what it means to follow one’s dreams.

Engineered for greatness

When Azeizah had just started university, her father passed away. He was the rock of a family of eight, so naturally she was overcome with devastating grief. One night, she dreamt that her late father spoke to her. He said, “You can and will become the biggest engineer in the UAE.” So, she chose to let her grief empower her, rather than debilitate her.

A dream realised

Aside from overcoming her own trauma, the male-dominated field of petroleum engineering came with its own set of challenges. But despite it all and thanks to the support of her family, friends, and company, she is now an accomplished engineer. She uses her platform to inspire the next generation (Gen Z) to pursue their passions with unwavering determination. Even though Azeizah is already a source of inspiration for all, an athlete, entrepreneur, artist, and engineer, her journey continues and she’s not even close to being done yet.
