How did I choose my study place?
I've always been interested in electronics and information technology, since my childhood. When question has risen to study in Finnish university, I have found Metropolia website as one of the most informative. To tell the truth I saw there model entrance exam for engineering field, and have found it really challenging.
Highlights and challenges of my studies:
Campus atmosphere and people are actual highlights of my studies. Each of our teachers has its own teaching style, and every lesson experience really differs from one another. This makes studies not boring but somehow saturated and pleasant. Our campus has vintage look and is packed with a lots of electrical equipment, just to be there sets your mind in the right mood. It is actually inspiring. For challenges I must say it is all about projects. No challenge in daily workload, as it is meant to be this way. Working on the project is genuine creative activity. You make something from scratch, any way you want, and really few things are limiting you. And outcome is directly proportional to knowledge and traits of your team.
My future plans:
I'm looking forward to visit some other countries as an exchange student. My main goal is Japan, I am fond of Japanese culture and martial arts. It is hard to say how I see my own future after graduation. I hope to continue my studies and find a good job as an engineer, preferably design of electronic components or something like that. I feel that at this point exact profession is not to be decided yet.
What I want to say to you who is considering studies in my field?
Studying in electronics gives you ability to create, to craft. The more you know, more free in this you get. There are so many ways you can play this game, and even more which we don't know yet. This is developing field, it continues to evolve even today, while we are studying it.
