Hello! My name is Elie and I am from Cameroon. I am currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Engineering and Policy Analysis (EPA) at the Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management of TU Delft.
While pursuing my Bachelor’s degree in Energy Systems Engineering, I realized my impact on the society would be limited, since I would mostly be implementing other peoples’ decisions. So, I needed a program that could put me in a position to make decisions and have more impact on the society. The EPA program gives me those skills! At the start of this academic year, my greatest fear was to study online, more because I was afraid of disorganization and not being able to follow the lectures. However, I have been enjoying the experience as all course materials are made available at the start of each quarter and lecturers constantly follow us individually to ensure everything is fine.
Currently, I serve as the chair of the Student Ambassador’s association. The reason for this is because I previously studied in Turkey, France and now in The Netherlands. I had different experiences and I know how important it is to be supported as a prospective student and also freshman. My aim is thus to support them as much as possible to ensure they have a wonderful experience in The Netherlands.
