About me

Hi, I'm Julia and I am studying Industrial Engineering, specialising in Mechanical Engineering. I am one of the first students who started their studies digitally. It was different from what I imagined, but considering the circumstances, I liked it. There were many online activities to meet new people, which went very well.

Julia,
Business Administration/ Industrial Engineering – specialising in Mechanical Engineering B.Sc.

In my degree, the diversity of subjects is at the same time the biggest challenge AND the most interesting part about it. I learn a lot of different things from economics or maths to law. Sometimes it is a lot and I’m overwhelmed, but when I start to understand everything, the feeling is really good!

Why I chose TU Darmstadt:

Because it is a very prestigious university and I’m still close to home, my family and friends.

What I like about Darmstadt:

That everything is close to each other, that there are trams, a “Hundertwasserhaus” that is well worth seeing and that there are many different and cool people around.

How I felt about the start of the Digital Semester:

It was different from what I imagined, but given the circumstances, I liked it. There were many online campaigns to get to know new people, which worked very well.

What are the challenges that I face in my studies:

In my degree, Business Administration/Industrial Engineering, is the challenge at the same time the interesting part about it, the diversity of subjects. I learn a lot of different things from economics or maths to law. Sometimes it is a lot and I’m overwhelmed, but when you understand the feeling is even better.

Fun fact about me:

I can’t stand it to hear music or TV with the volume set to an even number. That's why I always tune it to 11 or 13 for example.

My favourite motto:

No regrets

My favourite book:

Love Letters to the Dead, by Ava Dellaira

Three words that describe me:

open, relaxed, funny

What I would say to my younger self:

Have more fun and trust I yourself.

When you were a kid, who did you want to become? Are you on your way there now:

I never had this one dream job or a specifically goal. To be honest, not till today. The only thing I’ve always be sure is that I want to be happy and stay myself. I don’t know how or were yet, but I know that I will find my way. For now it’s feeling right to be here, so it will be.
