Carlos Abad is one of the 45 international students this year at Tecnun. Carlos is studying Industrial Organisation Engineering and his country of origin is Peru. Abad tells us how he is living his first days at the School of Engineers, when he is about to complete almost the first month of his stay with us.

How are the first days on Tecnun going?

So far I am doing very well, I really like the atmosphere of the University and the different classes and activities, the first week I still didn't feel at ease at the University, but now, two weeks later, that is no longer a problem.

How have your colleagues and teachers received you?

They have received me very well, the teachers are very kind and are attentive to solve the different doubts I have and the classmates are friendly and have helped me with advice for my stay in San Sebastian as well as for the university, also in the subjects where I am the only international student, they have included me to be part of their groups in the projects they assign us.

What is your home university and what differences do you find in comparison to it?

My home university is the University of Piura, located in Piura - Peru. The main difference is in the area, as my home university is much larger than Tecnun, however, I have been surprised by the technological infrastructure at Tecnun, as to enter the various buildings through the use of ID card. 

What do you think of what you have learned about the culture here?

The culture has surprised me a lot, because it is my first time in a European country and being from South America, the change has been very noticeable. However, it is interesting for me to learn new customs, as I consider it important for my personal development, especially because I can transmit my customs and exchange them with the people here. On the other hand, I have really enjoyed getting to know San Sebastian, because I have met great people in a short time and we have shared experiences that make us relate to each other interpersonally. I hope to continue interacting and getting to know more about the culture here, as this is one of the different reasons why I decided to do this student exchange.

What do you think Tecnun?

Tecnun I think it is an excellent university where they care a lot about the good service to the students, so far I have learned many new and interesting topics about my career, the classes have been didactic and the teachers have been very attentive to the international students. On the other hand, the infrastructure seems to me to be modern and technological, which allows my stay at the university to be productive.
