Without the ETIA master course I would have never gone into the renewable energy field, I would have never found my passion for wind energy. Thanks to this course, I decided to do an internship in wind energy. Now I work there full time right after my graduation.

When I finished my bachelor’s in Mediaeval History, I wanted to do something more STEM-related, but was worried about finding a program, which would accept me and allow me to learn any math or science. Now I am graduating from ETIA with a full-time position at a solar energy company.

The DA campus offers students many opportunities to experience the lively international spirit and multiculturalism, also outside the lecture hall. The garden – with WIFI – or the DA bar are great spots to study and hang out with fellow students in an informal setting.
