Student Profile

Ishika, 2nd year MSc Imaging Enineering

When I was searching for the right Master’s programme for me: my interests leaned towards biomedical engineering with a mix of mechanical and electrical engineering. I wanted to learn biology and chemistry in order to apply some of the engineering principles. Maastricht University gave me the freedom to study these topics and explore such a fascinating field despite my engineering background.

What was your first impression of your master’s programme at Maastricht University?
My first impression was overwhelming (in a good way, of course). The difficulty level is high and demanding but it is completely worth it. Each week we had a different professor walk us through interesting imaging modalities such as Ultrasound, Microscopy, Spectroscopy, MRI, CT, etc. This introduction opened up the possibilities that lay ahead and would be explored in greater depth in the courses that followed.

What do you think of Maastricht as a city?
Maastricht is quite beautiful; the architecture is decidedly more Belgian than in the rest of the Netherlands, which makes it quite unique from most Dutch cities. The Belgian influence does not limit to architecture but includes the food, the infamous ‘Vlaai’ and the beers. The proximity to so many neighbouring cities such as Cologne, Aachen, Brussels, and even Luxembourg or France make it a unique student city to live in.

How is your student life?
I moved to Maastricht last year and so far, student life for me has been great. I have enjoyed working out at UM Sports, interacting with my fellow students through various activities in the city. There are a lot of student associations that exist for almost every hobby, I am yet to explore this but I do look forward to joining one in the future.
