Her insights about master studies Sustainable Management and Production:
I have worked with various waste management related projects in India, while I had an urge to learn more about waste management and its techniques worldwide. And my interest to pursue higher education abroad boosted me to look for a suitable course. I stumbled upon KTU website, and programme Sustainable Management and Production triggered my interest, as it focus on cleaner production and sustainable management concepts. In developing countries, these concepts are still restricted only with books never been used or implemented practically. To learn how these concepts work on real case scenario and how it is applied worldwide especially in Europe. This intrigued me to take upon this programme. Also, this programme covered assessment subjects like environmental impact assessment, life cycle assessment, etc. Not only the course module, University's well-established partner universities, scholarship opportunities for non-EU students altogether made to choose this programme.
I always believe that students'-teachers' rapport is very much important to indulge and enjoy the studies. First of all, I am glad to mention that the teachers who taught me were extremely friendly, helpful and motivating throughout my studies.
Secondly, the classes and content of course were interesting which are not just restricted with books rather focused on current and real time challenges, issues in Europe and Lithuania. Almost all the modules, had covered wide range of new topics which I was not exposed to earlier.
Thirdly, I was pretty excited when I was motivated to apply for exchange programme to study at one of the partner universities for a semester. I received various suggestions and feedbacks from programme coordinator and other teachers. Semester abroad was completely a different experience and quite a learning phase as an exchange student.
Moreover, the examination patterns are quite interesting, as it is not just limited with written exams. Having combination of different exams like oral defence and PowerPoint presentation, writing a detailed essay on a topic, written exams seems to be quite interesting, learning and less stressful than usual pattern of exam.
I cannot just restrict with one module and say it is most memorable or useful to me. Rather, all the modules were quite interesting and different in their own aspects. However, I enjoyed Sustainable Consumption and Production, Environment Impact Assessment Modules, Environmental Management very much as it was much engaging and trying to evaluate and assess an object, make a detailed report on our assessment. While Chemicals Risk Management, Ecosystem Modelling piqued my interest to get into research.
Overall, I believed, this programme will take me one step ahead in my career.
