What made you choose Sweden and KTH for your studies?
I chose KTH because it is among the top universities in Europe when it comes to engineering and the very best in Sweden. It has a long-lived reputation for superior quality in education and because it offered a wide range of choices and a conducive learning environment. Also as an international student, I do not feel estranged as there are all kinds of nationalities here.
Sweden is generally ranked among the top 10 safest and best places to live in; it is green, super-clean, lakes everywhere, healthy food. It is just a splendid experience to live and study here. Other than that, it also offers a beautiful model of sustainable development and provides both high-quality life and education.
What made you choose your specific programme?
Industrial Engineering is among the fastest growing fields of engineering that is also key to the rapid development of any nation. The skills I have learned will especially be critical in Rwanda's industry development.
What do you like most about KTH?
Very helpful professors with a wonderful methodology of delivery, a vast amount of research material and a friendly social-cultural environment that is quite conducive to learning!
What are your impressions of Stockholm and Sweden?
Indeed, it must be one of the best places to live on earth.
What do you like most about being here?
The rapid transport systems, healthy food, friendly people, unforgettable memories and impressive service delivery in every sector!
What is your best memory so far from your time at KTH?
The efficiency and neat organisation with which the KTH administration carries out its business.
What do you think are the differences between studying at KTH and your home university?
They are two worlds apart with an ocean of difference in between. In particular, the quality and methods of delivery are different. The experience of learning practically with real life and real-time examples is just exceptional to KTH, something which my home university is yet to get to!
What would you like to say to students thinking of choosing KTH for their master’s studies?
With KTH you can’t go wrong, in fact, there is hardly a better choice of a higher learning institution, especially if you're interested in the field of engineering.
