I have been involved in scientific projects since I finished and I think all these opportunities were possible because I did this master.

It was a great program full of nice professors-mentors, and great colleagues. We were like a family, all students helping each other and encouraging to succeed. I also acquired different and very interesting skills that I'm still using in my day-to-day work. I loved the full experience.
