Grammatiki's student perspective

"During my time in the MSc course, the lecturers assisted me to pursue my goals. They gave me the opportunity to join one of the research groups of the Department of Engineering and Design and collaborate with great scientists. At the moment I am working towards completing my PhD in the Sensor Technology Research Centre."
