I came to TU Graz in September, 2014 from Palestine, as part of the Erasmus Mundus Avempace III project to study the master’s program Production Science and Management. I was astonished by the experience I had at TU Graz. The University is highly equipped with everything the student would need during the whole study period. I was impressed to meet lots of international students during the study period, and I enjoyed how the teaching style in many courses was non-traditional, by including case studies, guest speakers from the industry, and team-based projects. I spent unforgettable times, during the course product innovation project, where I worked with a multidisciplinary group of students for one year, to solve one of the real world challenges in the industry. The support we received from the university and the industry was second-to-none!
