Intellectual fulfilment

“My Master’s degree at Esslingen University of Applied Sciences was a time of intellectual fulfilment. I was able to creatively try out all the building and energy technology labs and thereby internalise the knowledge I had learned. My curiosity was awoken and with it the urge to overcome boundaries and develop something new. The many events on campus allowed me to see things from different perspectives and have contact opportunities with leading companies.”
