“I chose the Materials Technology programme following my engineer diploma in Science and Engineering of Materials. The programme seemed well focused on the different available materials and their development. I also found science of materials really interesting and intriguing. The programme was better than my expectations regarding the amount of different practical exercises and the semester projects. Additionally, I did not expected to receive so much help from the teachers and staff.
I am actually working for a company using AAU laboratory. For the R&D section of the company, most of the tools available at AAU are useful and the study programme did prepare me with the use of these different machines.
I believe that graduates from AAU have better problem solving and practical skills than any other universities.”
“I am working at a company based in Aalborg called Serenergy as a Material R&D Engineer. My daily duties are to develop and optimise new compounds and production techniques for the bipolar plates used in High Temperature Methanol Fuel Cells. My education is really useful in the way that I have learned which experiments I should design to analyse special properties of a material. Furthermore, some of the phenomena observed in my job are similar to some phenomena observed during my study therefore saving me a lot of time for explanation.
The most useful skills that I have acquired during my study programme are the scientific abilities such as great physical laboratory techniques and data analysis and interpretation.
In the future, I plan to do an Industrial PhD with Serenergy.”
