I completed my Bachelors in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from IIIT Bhubaneswar, India. I was interested in learning ways to implement electronics in medical applications. Hence I chose to do an MSc in Electrical Engineering – Microelectronics track at TU Delft. The Bioelectronics department here deals with the topics that I am interested in.
The best part of the MSc program is that I can choose the courses that I want and thus I have total control over my own coursework. I can choose interesting courses from other departments and even other faculties. The courses here are quite challenging and require me to apply my knowledge and learning in practical applications.
Apart from stellar professors, we are also taught by industry veterans who give insights into industrial application of the topics we are studying. That gives me a better idea of how things work in the real world.
Many of the courses are based on team-based projects which help me learn how to coordinate with my peers and work together towards a common goal as a team.
The departments have good connections with the industry and other research organizations. Hence there is no dearth of good and interesting projects to work on.
Another aspect I love about studying in the Netherlands is that I have the opportunity to travel around Europe easily. Delft itself is a beautiful little student town between Rotterdam and The Hague. So I have ample places to explore and enjoy myself while growing my career.
