Wind, sun, or geothermal energy – these resources have never been in short supply in Armand Pokam's home country of Cameroon. Armand soon realised that his future profession would have to involve renewable energies. He explains why he is studying Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at TU Darmstadt's Institute of Renewable Energies:

“I’ve noticed that I get respect whenever I introduce myself as a student at TU Darmstadt. It is no secret that TU Darmstadt is one of the leading universities in Germany and worldwide. The level of expertise is high, which is why I would say that TU Darmstadt is designed for and caters for the best students. As the General Student Council's Ombudsman for International Students I want to encourage international students, in particular, to take the plunge and come to Darmstadt.”
