SOFIA (Portugal)

Project Adviser

NAME: Sofia Oliveira
COUNTRY: Portugal
PROGRAMME: PhD in Engineering and Technology

Why did you choose to study this programme?

I spent my last 3 years in Estonia abroad. I did Erasmus as an intern and then I was accepted in a master programme also in UT.
Why not do my PhD studies in UT as well? I choose Engineer and Technology programme because allow me to work in the same lab group and keep working in the same research topic of my great interest.

Why Estonia?

I chose Estonia based on a list that my supervisor, in my previous university, gave to me mentioning that would be the best universities to do my internship. I thought that could be interesting know a new country and culture that didn’t know much about it. I enjoyed my life here so much that I decided to stay at least 4 years more.
