Louise Schønnemann wanted to continue her studies while undertaking the challenge of living abroad. So she decided to come to Australia to study the Master of Engineering (Management).
Master of Engineering (Management)
I have become a real networker. I used to be more modest but now I see infinite opportunities of using my network to gain experience.
I studied global management and manufacturing at Aarhus University in Denmark. I really wanted to go overseas and test myself for a future international career.
The Master of Engineering (Management) seemed to be a good extension of my undergrad. It is very broad and opens up a lot of opportunities but at the same time allows me to dig deeper into a specific area for my master thesis.
The highlight of my studies has been the travel experience, my personal development, and my big, new social and professional network. Switching to a completely new life far from my comfort zone is something that has developed me as a person.
I’ve been part of lots of different activities such as volunteering at the RMIT University Student Union. I also volunteer in RMIT’s Engineers without Borders Chapter. This is a great opportunity to meet other students with the same interests and passions.
I’m looking forward to spending a semester on exchange in Vietnam. I will also spend my last semester in a manufacturing company where I am going to write my master thesis while solving an actual problem for the company. After graduation I will see what job opportunities there are in Europe, closer to my home and my family and friends in Denmark.
Hopefully my career as an engineer will involve a lot of travelling and the opportunity to see more places of the world and experience new cultures. I dream of working in a growing company who are progressing positively but also open to changes and improvements.
