You might have read or heard a lot about Sweden already: the Vikings, Scandinavia, beautiful nature, the Nobel Prize, Volvo, and IKEA in a modern, sustainable country with a high living standard. Maybe you’ve even heard about the football star Zlatan Ibrahimovic. What you perhaps didn’t know is that Sweden is one of the most innovative countries in the world and that it tops the 2019 Innovation Union Scoreboard of the European Commission.Read more
Why did you choose the Master in Manufacturing Engineering at University West?
I was determined to broaden my horizons in the manufacturing industry as I had 4 years of experience in this particular field. The diverse cultures and student city appealed to me as well since I hail from a humble background, therefore, having an affordable lifestyle in this specific city drew me to apply to this university. The facilities and opportunities that the university provides for students really attracted my attention.
The fact that Sweden is one of the world's leading countries in the areas of academic research and innovation, has served to deepen my interest in attending. When I read the information about the programme, I saw that University West is in close cooperation with industrial companies and the Production Technology Centre (PTC), one of the largest and newest manufacturing laboratories in Sweden.
How did you experience your studies at University West?
I am grateful that I had the opportunity to attend several seminars as well as make industry visits. As an audio-visual learner this really accelerated my learning curve. During my studies I spent a lot of time working on hands-on projects at the Production Technology Center (PTC). PTC offered substantial opportunities for networking, which has opened some doors for me. I challenge future students to seize opportunities such as these to make lasting impressions on companies by conducting top-notch projects and experiments to stand out in the pool of prospective materials engineers!
