Antonios Somarakis

My name is Antonios(but everybody calls me Antonis). During my studies in Electrical and Computer Engineering  in Greece, I realized that the best way to fulfil my ambitions and come up with my social mission was to pursue a career in  the field of Biomedical Engineering. Hence, I could not imagine a better place to  specialise in that field than TU Delft.  Companies like Phillips, Mechatronics, Toshiba and a lot of start-ups and spin-off companies of the university offer a lot of research and work opportunities in the field of Biomedical Engineering.  

As I have been already in your position, I could understand the thoughts that conquer your mind. "How difficult would the courses be?" ,"Is it difficult to find a proper house in Delft?" ,"Is it possible to find a job in Netherlands after I finish my studies there?", "Could I practise Tennis in TU Delft ?" and many more minor or major questions. So, by being part of the Ambassador project of TU Delft, I hope to aid the prospective students to solve all these and other queries that they have.

Moreover, Delft is a bike city! Everyone rides a bike. This could be the initiative to start a bike tour with your friends, as Delft and its outskirts offer really outstanding places to have a picnic or play football in a green valley! Also, every Thursday and Saturday there is a market place, which is basically a flea market, which is full of pleasant smells and nice tasty foods. It is really awesome and I visit  it every Thursday, when it is not too crowded and there are mostly local people.

A quick tip:Apply as soon as possible! There are a lot of scholarship opportunities and also it would be easier for you to find a proper house.

Μην διστάσετε να ρωτήσετε οτιδήποτε! Η αλλληλοβοήθεια είναι το παν, όταν έρθετε θα το συνειδητοποιήσετε!
