M.Sc. Ketoma Vix Kemanji | Graduate Software Engineering and Management 

After my bachelor and one year working in a technical position, I enrolled in the SEM programme which I found particularly suitable for my career objectives. Through the programme I was able to develop not only technical and beginner research skills, but also management and intercultural competences. I enjoyed learning from a variety of skilled professors and industry experts; and interacting with a diverse group of students from all around the world.
