Student at the TU Darmstadt: Bachelor of Science Computer Science

Why did you decide to study computer science?

Already in my childhood, I experienced a lot and learned skills from my mother who studied computer science. When I was eight years old, she already told me that I'd one day study computer science. Although I looked at and tried out many different occupational areas during my final secondary school examinations (with advanced courses in computer science) to prove her guess wrong, my mother was ultimately right in the end: computer science is my way of thinking and living.

Are you planning on taking advantage of the training programs offered by PASS?

Yes, I'll definitely use the opportunities presented to me by PASS by attending their internal academy. In addition to the basic courses on currently used tools, I'm really interested in the other offers provided in relation to different soft skills.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

Five years is a long time! I will probably be done with my master's for a year – which career I'll pursue after that… at the moment, I can imagine just about everything. Maybe I'll continue on with the university and get a PhD.
