One of the best things, as a foreign student, is that you go abroad with a completely empty schedule, and you sort of get to design your new life.

What have you used in your work that you learned at Chalmers?

Working on a project from start to finish. That’s what a master’s degree is; you got a set period of time to finish. So, finishing a master’s a degree is a course in project management itself. It teaches you how you should work to get things done and where to find the information you need. You gain the knowledge you need from the studies but that’s just the foundation. It’s learning by doing that is the most important part.
