Endorsed by our Alumni

It was great to hear from many different experts from industry. As a young talent, it was a very much eye-opening experience and also validation of some of my thoughts.

In this event, I have earned a lot of information about European companies in the renewable energy field that I didn’t know. And because of the student project competition, I have also made many new friends in this area. 

As a student, it was highly educative. As an engineer, it was a good chance to become familiar with state of the art technology.

It was really mind-blowing. A huge gathering of a variety of companies and professionals with solutions that can change the world. It sure sparked a fire of inspiration in me.
