The study fair, which was part of International Week at the Faculty of Engineering, gave the engineering students an opportunity to get answers to questions regarding studying abroad.
- I am here to learn more about what courses they offer in English in environmental engineering, which is my field. So it is nice to be able to meet some of the academic staff who can answer specific questions, says one of the visitors at the study fair, Bo Oliveira Ommen, who studies Environmental Technology. He is just one of the many engineering students who each year chooses to study abroad for six months.
Studying abroad is an obvious opportunity for those engineering students who are looking for a semester with different challenges combined with cultural and social experiences.
- I would like to experience another country and university, and I think the different universities have some very interesting courses – actually, I am seriously considering going to Lisbon, says Bo Oliveira Ommen. New Teaching Inspiration
One of the participants in the International Week, Professor Dr Luisa Margarida Martins, participated at the fair and talked to the Danish students. She was able to give useful advice on application dates and procedures as well as in connection with the specific subject areas.
- I am also here at the Faculty of Engineering to teach and in connection with that I have found it very inspiring to hear about the faculty’s teaching concept called Project Based Learning, which is a very different form of learning to what I am used to, since we primarily use lectures, she says. Academic Networks Create Synergy
During the week the participants from the partner universities of the Faculty of Engineering get ample opportunities to discuss academic issues, acquire new knowledge and make new contacts – not least because of the social activities.
- The networking part is also really good, because it gives us an opportunity to exchange ideas. I think there is great potential in cooperation across universities, as it is very rewarding to hear about our colleagues’ experiences with, among other things, different teaching methods, says Luisa Margarida Martins.
