Omar, 26, from Tanzania, currently enrolled in the AGU MSc in Electrical and Computer Engineering program:
“The main reason I chose AGU is the University’s Concept. I researched a lot about the University’s Vision, Mission, Values and Approach and it really convinced me.
I knew that in AGU, there would be more chances for me to conduct research and collaborate with my Professors on their fascinating projects; another reason I joined this University was because I wanted to work with ambitious researchers and you can definitely feel this kind of ambition at AGU.
The instructors at AGU are really inspiring and approachable. In other universities it’s not as easy to approach professors, let alone the heads of departments. Here, you can contact them easily and they answer fast; that’s the thing about AGU: the professors are renowned and have international experience, but stay very humble.
I am happy to evolve in such an ambitious learning environment where I can really turn all the knowledge I acquire into concrete projects and practice. It helps me feel more confident in my professional and personal development. AGU professors are actually looking for students to help them carry out the many projects they work on. I’m currently working on one that involves “Biosensors”. Once finished, my professor and I will also write a paper about it.
Within my program, I get to learn about a lot of things like BioMEMs, underground/underwater sensor networks, silicon manufacturing, etc.
I knew about the software program MATLAB, but coming to AGU, I got to work on it even more. I also regularly work on the microscope and the laser.
We do presentations in every class and I can feel that I’m improving on my presentation and communication skills.
The workload is challenging but we really feel that we learn a lot. The English level of the professors is also very good and they are definitely experts in their academic and research fields.
My academic experience at AGU definitely matches my expectations. We are really offered a great learning environment here.
The University has a very bright future and I believe in its positive impact on Education, Research and Society.”
