LATEST NEWS AND EVENTS FROM THE SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING
"The Master in Industrial Engineering prepares us perfectly for working life".
Regina Arias-Camisón has just returned from Australia, where she has finished her TFM.
Regina Arias-Camisón graduated a few years ago at Tecnun as an engineer in industrial technologies, so, in order to qualify for the title of industrial engineer, she had to take the Master's degree in Industrial Engineering. As he recalls now, during his undergraduate years, Tecnun-University of Navarra had proved to him to be a great University, both for its teaching staff and for its facilities and equipment, so when it came time to continue with his Master's studies, he had no doubt that he would continue to opt for Tecnun. "I think it is the place that gave me the most confidence. In addition, thanks to the approach of companies, taking part in subjects on the Master's degree itself, it helps us to get to know different sectors of industry and so we are better able to choose what really interests us as professionals," says Regina, who is clear about what she would highlight most about the Master's degree in Industrial Engineering. "Above all, the ability to work in a team and the opportunity to get to know companies that might interest us in the future, as well as the personal experiences of workers in these companies".
Regina has been in Australia for the last 7 months doing her Master's Thesis at Griffith University in Brisbane. "To make this project possible, I had to put into practice my knowledge of computer design, programming, assembly and data analysis, among others". His project consisted of creating a new technology for rowing machines. The main objective has been to provide these machines with a seat design through which the user must develop the ability to maintain balance, which is then transferred to training/racing on the water.
Her day-to-day life at the university in Australia consisted of doing my project on my own. "This involved a lot of organisation on my part, and the working environment was totally international: PhD students, postgraduate and undergraduate students from the UK, Russia, Iran and India.
Regina recommends this experience to people with ambition and curiosity. "In my opinion it is really important to get out of our comfort zone, to get to know other realities, to learn about other cultures, languages. It's a different option than going straight into the world of work. It seems to make you fall behind your peers who start their working career before you. But the experience and maturity that this type of experience gives you cannot be compared and what you bring to a company in the future, if you have really taken advantage of leaving home to another country, will be more valuable".
Finally, Regina has no doubt that she would do the Master in Industrial Engineering again at Tecnun. "I recommend the MII for everything mentioned above and because I think it prepares us very well for working life. In addition to the good training we are given, the atmosphere at Tecnun is very good, with people who, in addition to being classmates, become great friends".
