"After graduating the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Building Services Iasi in 2012, I decided to follow the "Structural Engineering in English" Master Program. I consider that the information given within this Master Program is of real value for any structural engineer and offers him the possibility to build his work strategy for future projects. The pertinent guidance given by them and the possibility to discuss any professional problem represented a real advantage. Following the successful completion of the master program in 2014, I decided to begin my doctoral studies within the same faculty and in October 2015 I obtained a doctoral scholarship given by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) for a period of 10 months. This scholarship gave me the opportunity to do my research at the University of Kassel, Germany. Having studied in English during the Master Program represented an advantage at the scholarship competition, but also in the international collaborations."

"It was a big challenge for me to graduate the Structural engineering master because my bachelor degree was in Marketing and the lectures at master were related to civil engineering. All the professors are well prepared and I really thank them for helping me understand and enjoy this new field for me. This experience gave me the best knowledge to became better in my career."
