At the end of my studies of electrical engineering, I spent a semester at Georgia Tech in Atlanta. There I worked on the first part of my master's thesis at the Research Network Operation Center and attended a project course in which we as a team developed an app for people suffering from dementia.
Thanks to the supervising chair, I was able to connect with doctoral students working in similar fields as I did in my master's thesis and was invited to an exciting conference on energy systems of the future. In addition to my professional experience at the university, I had a wonderful time in Atlanta and the surrounding area. Atlanta is a warm, bright city with many festivals, sporting events and fascinating history. The university offers a wide range of clubs and sports clubs of all kinds. The weekends were packed with excursions to the mountains or to the coast as well as concerts or football games, volleyball and cycling. A big thank you to the Rohde Foundation for helping me with my project.
