How would you describe the cooperation with the MSE students you supervise?
«The collaboration and exchange are very motivating, inspiring and enriching for both, student and advisor. In the project work, current research subjects are addressed, leading to new findings, methods and systems. Students can work on a topic of their choice, with a very positive effect on motivation and results. As an MSE advisor, I support students with my knowledge, experience and guidance to help them achieve the highest possible level of personal success in their studies.»
What do you enjoy most about advising in the MSE?
«For me, the guidance in the project work is what I enjoy most as an MSE advisor. I can draw inspiration from it for my own research.»
Which Master thesis do you remember most and why?
«I do not want to pick out a specific master thesis. Each master thesis is unique and has its own beauty. As master theses are research works, the outcome cannot really be planned in advance and results are worked out iteratively.»
What are some lessons you've learned as an MSE advisor?
«I think as an MSE advisor you have to be adaptive enough and be able to adjust to the needs of the students. For example, some students wish and need closer guidance while others are better left to approach their challenges with a higher degree of autonomy.»
What’s your main reason to recommend the MSE degree program?
«I think the MSE program offers a very good opportunity to either further deepen in a specific area or to acquire complementary knowledge for interdisciplinary tasks The master's degree provides an excellent basis for the following professional career to be attractive for exciting positions in industry and public institutions in an increasingly international competitive environment. For interested students, the MSE degree is the entrance to pursue a PhD study.»
