Experience of Graduates


Arvind Devanathan from India

Master Program in Chemical Engineering (Process Systems Engineering)

I would like to introduce myself as Arvind Devanathan from India. It's a great opportunity for former students like me to share my views about our department. I completed my Master of Science in Chemical Engineering and so would like to talk specifically from that perspective.

I would like to start from the first semester of my master program. As a student from India, I saw a big difference in the style of teaching and also the way technical concepts were handled. I liked the idea of Professors dealing with theoretical concepts and assistants given the responsibility of exemplifying them. It gives students a better understanding of the need for certain theories and how they work, or at least I see it this way.
