About me

¡Hola, my name is Diego and I’m studying mechatronics at TU Darmstadt. I came here from my hometown Caracas, Venezuela to southern Hesse specifically because of TU Darmstadt's reputation as a top university, and I feel very comfortable here. And I can already say: I can definitely imagine staying in Darmstadt after I graduate!

Diego,
Mechatronics B.Sc.

What I like about Darmstadt is that it's not a metropolis, but rather a science city where everything is within 15 minutes cycling distance.

IB Diploma

Why I chose TU Darmstadt:

Because of the excellent reputation (especially in engineering) that TU Darmstadt has, not only throughout Germany, but worldwide.

What I like about Darmstadt:

What I like about Darmstadt is that it's not a metropolis, but rather a science city where everything is reachable within 15 minutes cycling distance.

The suburbs are very quiet and have many green areas. And if you do want to go into a bigger city, cities like Frankfurt, Mannheim, Mainz and Wiesbaden are very easy to reach by train.

How I felt about the start of the Digital Semester:

Honestly. I have enjoyed the launch of the second digital semester. The university has developed intelligent and practical strategies to facilitate a completely functional online semester.

Of course I miss face-to-face study and I hope it will be possible again soon. But given the current situation, I am glad that the university has responded so well.

Fun Fact about me:

I am constantly trying to automate everyday things with microcontrollers.
