When I chose my degree programme, it was really important to me to find something that I would both enjoy and that would be of great importance for social progress. Nevertheless, as a graduate of a commercial academy, I initially felt as if I could only choose from among a limited number of degree programmes. But after attending the FIT Info Day and learning more about how many different technical degree programmes were available, I decided to study Mechanical Engineering and Business Economics so that I could add new technical knowledge to my previously acquired economic knowledge.
