I study electrical engineering because I want to develop and improve electronic devices and make them work – and what I need to do this is electricity!

Studying electrical engineering just feels right. I am a DIY sort of person. I am very creative, too, and I just love science. You can always find a new way to make something work, improve and invent things with Electrical Engineering. Things that some people can’t even imagine. TU Graz is a really good choice for me, because I feel like I belong here. Even though it’s not my homeland.
