What do you like most about KTH?
The academic environment and diverse student body deliver a perfect mixture for a world-class education. In my programme, students have backgrounds ranging from nursing to mechanical engineering, allowing for interactive discussions and perspectives. KTH is one of the only institutions that offer higher education in work environment engineering. This programme examines the theory and practice of technical and physical work environments to create a safe, sustainable, and efficient organisation. The country leads the world in ergonomics and workplace innovation. It is safe to say I didn't hesitate to accept my admission offer.
What are your impressions of Stockholm and Sweden?
With an interest in work design and ergonomics, I had a strong affinity for Sweden. Stockholm is a city that operates like clockwork; the organisational level is like nothing I have ever experienced. And, of course, the architecture is breath-taking; the pictures will not do it justice.
What is your best memory from your time at KTH so far?
That has to be the reception dinner at city hall; I felt so immersed in Swedish culture.
Are there any differences between studying at KTH and your home university?
There is something new every day that captivates me, like the architecture and calm nature sanctuaries. Not to mention that the culture is constantly intriguing, and every day I come home with a new experience.
What would you like to say to students thinking of choosing KTH for master's studies?
The best decision of my life, could be yours too.
What do you see as the most significant aspects of your programme?
My programme is in an academically dense area offering the potential for collaboration between other higher-level institutions. For example, the Karolinska Institute is right next door and offers researchers a convenient connection to the medical perspective.
Are you taking part in any student activities?
Getting involved with student activities is a great way to meet new people and have fun. My advice is to try something new. I joined the volleyball club with no experience and am having so much fun.
Do you have a dream job after graduating from KTH?
Right now, my plan is to pursue my PhD in ergonomics with a concentration in healthcare.
