Almost 90 new students from countries such as the USA, Austria, Belgium, Germany, Mexico and Singapore will start their studies at the Faculty of Engineering this week.
-Juhuu! Everybody from Spain, RUN! Laughing, the young people raced around the room, getting to know each other a little better. Study Start for the new exchange students was by no means quiet when two social science students got the atmosphere going with fun ‘get to know each other’ activities where the participants introduced themselves through laughter and games. From all over the world
A total of about 90 international students will study at the faculty for one or two semesters.
- The international students choose to study here because of the positive stories they get from their fellow students back home. A lot of them have read the so-called travel reports where other students tell about their experiences as exchange students – and here they speak highly of the Faculty of Engineering, says Jørgen Breier Henriksen, who is international relations coordinator at the faculty.
- We know that the international students like our dialogue based teaching where they can participate actively and ask questions along the way. At the same time, they like the opportunity to put theory to the test through projects and company collaboration. New friends and academic challenges
- I am in Denmark to improve my English, and at the same time I want new and different challenges and to meet new people, says Karolin Krutz, whose impression of the country so far is very positive. She is 23 years old and from Germany.
- Everybody seems very nice and I am looking forward to getting to know them better. And then I just want to have a fun semester! The courses are another reason that Karolin has chosen to study at the Faculty of Engineering. Because here she can get the chemistry courses that she needs at her home university.
