Salman Uddin received the KTH & ABB Scholarship and two years later, he graduated from the Master’s Programme in Electrical Power Engineering in 2017. He now works as Technical Marketing Manager at ABB in Västerås, Sweden.
What did it mean for you to receive the KTH & ABB Scholarship?
Receiving a company scholarship to study at KTH is one of the best things that has happened to me. The education in my master’s programme was highly focused on state of the art industrial technologies.
I think it is a great initiative by KTH to collaborate with industry to help students fund their studies. It also helps the selected student to get to know the industry in a better way.
The master's degree I received from KTH is a really important milestone in my professional career. I started working at ABB after graduation, since the company found my profile interesting and had already invested in me through the ABB-KTH Scholarship, which included a master’s thesis position. I really like working for ABB as it gives me the opportunity to work on projects that help make the world a better place to live in.
What did you think about your Master’s programme at KTH?
The energy industry is fascinating because understanding today’s energy needs is a real challenge. KTH’s master's programme in Electrical Power Engineering can provide you with an in-depth understanding of the power industry, with a focus on the technical aspects. Furthermore, the programme prepares you for not just the engineering challenges out there, but can also prepare you to work in teams, communicate with groups, manage people, and plan projects.
Something that I appreciated during my study was the international cultural at KTH, which helped me to grow as a person. Truly, it was the experience of a lifetime.
