Why I chose DTU
At the end of my studies in Barcelona,
I had to choose a university at which to
write my thesis as an Erasmus student.
I was very interested in Scandinavian
culture, needed to practice my English,
and I also wanted a university with
extensive expertise in the field of transportation.
DTU was perfect for it.
During my first weeks, I had such a
great experience that I decided to apply
for a full Master’s in Transport and
Logistics. Studying at DTU was different
from anything I had experienced
before. The courses were very practical
and interactive with lots of group work,
study trips, and activities with real-life
projects—always utilizing the latest
software and technologies. It amazed
me that teachers were very close to the
students and always available to help
you. They also invited many external
lecturers who are experts in their
Aside from the studies, I also found
a great environment for socializing
and having fun: sports facilities, social
events, and many student organizations
to join. I was a member of Erasmus
Student Network DTU, which helped
me develop many soft skills that proved
essential in my first job.
One of my passions is to live in international
environments, and DTU is the
place to be. With thousands of students
from all over the world, every day you
have the chance to learn something new
about a different culture.
But for me the real difference was
when I had to start looking for a job.
DTU uses external exam censors from
various companies, who take this
opportunity to recruit new employees.
After doing well on my exam, I got
a student job at Banedanmark, the
Danish railway infrastructure manager.
This was my real gateway to the Danish
labour market, and I got hired full time
before even finishing my studies. Now
I work in the Signalling Programme as
Test and Safety Manager of The New
Line: Copenhagen—Ringsted, we plan
to open at the end of 2018.
