Michael Joseph Sherman

Hello! My name is Joseph and I am from India. I am currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Robotics at the Faculty of Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering (3mE) of TU Delft.

During my Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering, I realised my passion for creating the thinking part of moving machines. After many projects in robotics and a year spent in a Drones Startup, I realised I was interested in learning more about AI and its applications in Robotics. The program - Masters Robotics, from the Cognitive Robotics department of TU Delft was a perfect match for delving into these aspects. The program is quite stressful and challenging, but with the perfect alignment with my interests, it’s worth it.

Right from searching for such a masters program, that suits my interests, to stepping inside my studio in the Netherlands for the first time, there were many moments of confusion and indecision, as is the case with most important decisions in life. As I look back now, I am glad I had extremely helpful students and staff members in Delft, who guided me through the various stages. So I believe that getting to know the experiences and views of students already at TU Delft is really important in the entire journey from application to moving into your new house in the Netherlands. I would love to share this experience and my journey with you. As a student ambassador, I am here to answer your questions and help you in any way I can.
