    THEOLA G. DURAN STUDYING AT TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY BERLIN

    I wanted to take a further step ahead in my career. Therefore, instead of going to Canada or any other country, I went to study in Germany. Without any further adieu, I filled the application form and started the process of my admission well in advance.


    Course Curriculum - 

    My master's program is three semesters long. In the first semester, I was taught the technical, economic, entrepreneurial and legal foundations for management decisions in the energy sector. All my semesters include lectures, tutorials, seminars as well as company visits, presentations, online materials related to practice and extracurricular activities. At the end of the course, I am also required to submit a thesis.
