Mirco chose to study Internet Technologies with Business Management MSc (now Digital Innovation Management MSc) at Loughborough University London due to our outstanding reputation.

Micro hopes to further his education by studying a PhD in engineering.

What were you doing before you started your master's degree?

I studied Industrial Engineering and Management. I also worked as a Teaching Assistant (Algorithms and Programming), and spent a year in the production system of a major automaker, supporting in continuous improvement processes.

Why did you choose Loughborough University London?

I researched online to see if I could find an exciting, challenging and demanding programme that will enable me to make a decisive contribution to our digital future. Loughborough University London was one university that appeared in the search query. I was thrilled with the idea of being able to study at a new, start-up campus while also being able to study at a renowned university in a fantastic global city.

What’s your favourite thing about Loughborough University London?

I have so many favourite things about Loughborough University London. This includes the inspiring students I have met throughout my time here; the learning and teaching; the Students Union; the dozen of events with company partners and so much more!

How have you funded your studies?

I received a fully funded scholarship awarded by the 'Foundation of German Business - Stiftung der Deutschen Wirtschaft gGmbH'.

What did you enjoy the most about your course?

I really enjoyed the practice-based experience. You do not simply just learn about things, but you actively do it yourself and find out how to solve real life problems.

Describe what it is like to be a postgraduate student and how this differs from being an undergraduate.

There is more freedom and independent work as a postgraduate student.

Where do you see your career in 5 years’ time?

I hope to have completed my PhD in Engineering. After this, I would like to have a management position related to digitisation and innovation or have started my own business for advanced human-cyber manufacturing.

How did you like to spend your time away from your studies?

I'm a big fan of bodyweight fitness and am a passionate bookworm.

If you could give one piece of advice to a postgraduate student, what would it be?

Get involved with university life as much as possible. Make sure to always have a break from work too.
