The university has given two students, Adriana and Cornel, the opportunity to spread their wings.
“This scholarship gave me the opportunity to continue my studies abroad while gaining job experience in the German market. Pursuing a master’s degree has been an immense challenge that made me see problems from a different perspective. So, to someone who is now applying for a scholarship at Jacobs I would say: Trust your qualifications and talent! Never underestimate your extracurricular activities as these may open doors for you in places where you would never expect. And don’t be afraid to be bold in planning your next step after graduating Jacobs.”
Cornel, graduate in Electrical Engineering:
Forbes listed him in their “30 under 30” most influential up-and-comers in Europe. Cornel Amariei developed the “Lumen” glasses for the visually impaired during his studies. He now works as Head of Innovation at Continental. He continues to work on his pet project as CEO. Reflecting on his time at Jacobs University, he said, “Interdisciplinary courses in subjects that were sometimes completely different from what I was studying helped to broaden my way of thinking. Now, when I am faced with a problem, I can look at it from a completely different perspective, which I couldn’t do before.”
