It's challenging, motivating and rewarding

"I have seen and participated in many different sort of lectures, workshops and learning environments overall, before starting my problem based and group work-oriented master studies in Lighting Design at Aalborg University Copenhagen. I had no idea how much improvement in study motivation, -interest and -performance this sort of education can give you.

Variety of lectures, workshops and project works bundled up to a package where constructive discussions and interaction with fellow students play a key role in studying, has really been an effective learning method. I have a background in engineering, but interests in all kinds of developing and creation in action. With that in mind, I was seeking for a solution where I can release my inner creativity and utilise my expertise in engineering. I came up with Lighting Design, and I truly have been happy with this choice. It's not only the nature of the teaching, but also the benefit of having up-to-date knowledge, tools, equipment and facilities to test, demo and implement my ideas. When it comes to assignments, they are related to real-life situations instead of being products of imagination. I believe that this approach provides a good basis for my future career and working life.

I wouldn't say studying here has been easy; it's challenging, motivating and rewarding!"
