Manuela Posada Henao

Hi!I´m Manuela, a second year MoT Master Student at the Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management.After working for a few years in Colombia I was looking for a change that could help me grow personallyand as a professional. What better way to accomplish this than to challenge myself in pursuing a Masterprogramme abroad at a top-ranked university!

The MoT Programme in a nutshell is great for engineers that are interested in acquiring knowledge andskills regarding technology and innovation management from a societal view, and want to combine thiswith their current technical background. Additionally, by having the possibility to study with students fromsuch diverse engineering careers I learned to analyze problems from a different and much broaderperspective than I did before.

At first, it can be a bit of a challenge to get accustomed to the student life (especially if you´ve worked afteryour bachelor’s degree like me!) and the Dutch education system, but it´s just a matter of time for you toget organized. After I had this sorted out I decided to join the Latin American Student Association(LATITUD) during the first year, and more recently added other extra-curricular activities like the StudentAmbassadors and Dutch course. As you can see, it is possible to carry out parallel activities along with yourstudies here at TU Delft.

My main goal as a Student Ambassador is to use my personal life experience as a student of TU Delft,knowledge of the application process and MoT programme to help YOU an upcoming future student inresolving your doubts and assisting you with any inquiry you may have. So, don´t doubt to contact me!
