Student Sharing
I not only gained solid academic knowledge, but also boosted both my mental and physical level, as well as explored diversified career opportunities from engineering to finance industry.
Jan Magnus ROTH
I also benefited a lot from the diversity of students and I appreciate the occasion for us to make friends from different countries. I also highly enjoyed the sport facilities in campus.
This experience was so valuable for me because it makes me more confident to talk in public and gives me a deeper understanding of Mechanical Engineering.
