Research in Copenhagen and study abroad in Glasgow

Undergraduate Programme in Chemical Engineering

Ignasi Pons, a fourth-year student in the Chemical Engineering undergraduate programme, completed an internship at the DTU in Copenhagen during the summer and, once he returned, spent three months studying abroad at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow.

Find out more about his two international experiences below:

 

During the summer I was able to do an internship and workshops in the DTU laboratories in Copenhagen, in the civil engineering department to be concrete. I worked in the Fire and Safety Engineering area in an office with other PhD students who had their own research lines.

My job at DTU involved writing a programming code to study heat fluxes. When I arrived, they offered me the chance to take part in the research line that interested me most or to even start a new one. My adviser suggested starting a new project, which was really exciting.

I felt that IQS's focus on student autonomy in classes and lab work really prepared me for the internship. We're encouraged to figure things out and solve problems in the lab by ourselves, which is extremely helpful once you leave university.

My experience was fantastic. I was able to see how another country does things, a different way of working and meet new people. I totally recommend it. Once I returned from Denmark, I decided to do a three-month study abroad at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow. I was far better prepared compared to my fellow students there thanks to the education we receive at IQS. The approach in Glasgow was definitely much more mathematical, which, combined with the chemistry approach at IQS, gave me a much more well-rounded experience.

Living abroad for a while is a unique experience. People welcomed me warmly. I was able to live in an international environment and I met tons of people from all around the world. During my time abroad I also took the opportunity to travel and discover the Highlands.

I think studying abroad is the best way to get to know yourself and find out what you want".
