Heaven from Sweden
Who are you?
"My name is Heaven and I started the Master’s programme in Production and Materials Engineering in 2019. When I'm not studying, I like eating and training. My vision is to someday have a meaningful job where I actively work to make the world a better place for everyone. I'm a horrible cook but an awesome company when someone else is cooking."
You are a Unibuddy – What is that?
"Unibuddy is a platform where prospective students can talk to students from Lund University about student life. We are a group of social and energetic students who would like to make incoming students transfer to Sweden as smoothly as possible. If we get questions we don't have an answer for, we direct them to the right people."
What is your experience of your studies at the program so far?
"My experience so far has been good with many optional courses as well as chances for part-time work as a lab assistant and teaching assistant. We have very helpful teachers who give more than expected and focus on knowledge instead of just tests. Even though it has been online now during the pandemic, we have had a lot of support."
Your time as a student of the program will soon end. What will you do next?
"I am applying for jobs in the industries, mainly focusing on companies who are working with sustainable production, as well as PhD positions in Sweden and other European countries."
Do you have a nice place in Lund that you would like to recommend to future students?
"Rinnebäck Gorge nature reserve is beautiful. I think a lot of students miss out on it since it is not in the central part of Lund."
