For masters I chose Universiteit Gent, Belgium because I had a strong motivation to work for the development of rural areas in India. This University offers one of the best rural development program in the world. After completing masters degree, I worked through different national and international development research organisations in India. That helped me to acquire some advance skills in research and motivated me to pursue PhD if I want to make my career in research. One day, I found a vacancy offered by Universität Kassel, Germany for a doctoral researcher on effect of urbanization on peri-urban area of Bengaluru city. This position attracted my attention to apply and by god's grace they selected me for this position.
Course Curriculum :
I found my masters course well organised. This course is run by 6 European partner universities and some other developing country partner universities including China and India. So, this program gives a wide exposure to the students by giving them opportunities to study in atleast two partner universities. Usually students from developing countries are encouraged to study in developed countries universities and developed countries students are encouraged to study in developing countries universities. So, it gives a flexibility to the students to choose the courses as per their choice and get trained in those subjects. Being a rural development student, we were taken to visit dairy production units, vegetable and fruit processing industries and also offered to do a case study on rural governance in Europe. Hence, overall it was an unimaginable experience to me. Currently in PhD, I don't have to attend course work because its a project based position in which candidate has to do lot of field work and data evaluation. If needed then they are allowed to join workshops and seminars.
Right from the start of the course, I was given a chance to make the best choice for my future career. I am also given the responsibility to research projects and take ownership of my work. Soon I will become an expert on my course. I applied to the university via a uni-assist link that was available on the university's website.
Course Curriculum :
This is a perfect course for me, as I have an eye for minute details and wish to examine things very closely. The nanoscience master-s curriculum follows the nanostructure science bachelor-s degree. The curriculum further focuses on developing the interdisciplinary approach to physics, chemistry, and biology, specialization, and applied issues. I am also expecting to independently plan laboratory work and conduct experiments as well as present the results verbally and in writing to the professor.
