Our international Master’s programme welcomes students from all over the world, like Rosemary Josy Poovattil from Kerala, India. In the following video she gives a glimpse of her everyday student life, talks about how and why she came to pursue her studies here in Austria and what she likes most about it.
Energy Informatics student & software developer at Kreisel Electric
"During my Bachelor degree programme (Mobile Computing) I already got really interested in the special field of energy which I can now continue to pursue with the Master's programme Energy Informatics. Besides studying I’m working part-time as a software developer at Kreisel Electric. As classes are mostly only half-day there is enough time for work - it’s a perfect combination. While most companies are specialized in a particular topic, the study enables us to build up a solid and broad knowledge, which I can perfectly apply in my job. This is worth a lot because there aren’t many software developers who are well experienced in the field of energy. But also vice versa, I’m always getting to know new technologies at work which give me a better understanding of the subjects taught at university."
