Hej! I’m Keerthana Jayaprakash
from India. I am currently doing my Masters in Quality and Operations
Management at Chalmers. I have rediscovered myself in the 6 months of living in
this beautiful city and cannot wait for all the adventures ahead.
A peek into the exciting life of a Chalmerist.
After 4 years of bachelors in
Mechanical Engineering and a 2-year stint at an MNC in India, I wished to go
back to school. I had discovered my interest and talent in Operations and
Business Management and began my intense research on universities with related
programs, which led me to the QOM program at Chalmers. Looking back, I had
clear expectations from Chalmers and knew what I wanted to specialize in and
work with, after graduation.
I reached Gothenburg during the
extended summer of 2016 and was constantly reminded that I was one of the lucky
few who got to enjoy a few extra hours of sun. The wonderfully planned
welcome week that was arranged for all the new entrants relieved me of all the apprehensions I had. I even made friends for life during my very first week at
Life at Chalmers is eventful at
the least and there are exciting things constantly happening in and around
campus to keep you engaged. The courses here are wonderfully structured and we
have incredible professors and collaborations with companies supporting us in
every possible way. At Chalmers, we are offered a relaxed and positive
environment to realize our dreams and remarkable opportunities to strive for
Gothenburg- a beautiful city, I now call home.
The warm people of Gothenburg
outweigh the effects of long and bleak Swedish winters with no effort. You are
exposed to a sociable international setting where you can enjoy the company of
people from all around the world. The Swedish fika is a wonderful facilitator
of good times and will leave you with a sweet aftertaste and sweeter memories.
A lasting dream of mine has been
to travel and experience the world in its natural glory. Living in Sweden has
helped me realize this dream as well. From trips to Copenhagen to celebrate the end of
exams, to Christmas in Budapest and New Year’s under the northern lights of
Finnish Lapland I have received much more than I had hoped for.
Chalmers is known for its world
class education and you can be free from any doubt of receiving it. What I am
grateful for is the opportunity to find new dreams and interests, be it
traveling, music, sports or just about anything.
Here at Chalmers, the world is
