"When you go outside you realize how well they prepare us at Tecnun"
Alejandro García is currently in Boston on an internship at the MIT average Lab.
Alejandro García studied the Degree Industrial Engineering at Tecnun and emphasizes that he finished the Degree "very happy with what he learned" and therefore decided to continue studying the Master's Degree in Industrial Engineering at Tecnun. "It is true that the theoretical load of Degree is greater than the practical, and this was one of the reasons why I continued with the master's degree, seeking to apply what I had learned to more practical projects that would help me get closer to the working world," emphasizes the engineer, who is currently finishing a stay at the MIT average Lab.
- How did the option to go to the MIT average Lab come up?
I came to do my master's thesis project and extended my stay to collaborate on a couple of projects. When you go out into the "real world" you realize what tools we learn at Tecnun and how we are really well prepared to tackle problems and find solutions, even in such prestigious environments as MIT.
- What else would you highlight from your training at Tecnun?
I would emphasize that, both in the Degree and in the master's program, the training is very broad, covering many technical and also human areas. We learn about different sectors of engineering, without forgetting that we not only need technical knowledge but also how to apply it, and especially how to apply it in a team. Although we all have a preference for a specific area , having this global vision of engineering financial aid helps us to find better solutions and Tecnun really achieves that.
- What doors has the Master's Degree in Industrial Engineering opened for you?
As industrial engineering is such a broad discipline and the master's degree has different modules, the doors that open to us are many, maybe all of them! Then we have the challenge to choose what we like, but knowing that we can apply what we learn to so many sectors financial aid much when looking for a job or choose a sector that interests us more.
- Would you recommend it to students who are evaluating it?
Without a doubt, further training after Degree is important and both my classmates and I are very happy with the practical format and teamwork that this master's degree offers.
In the master's program you really realize what all that study during the Degree was for. Most of the content of the master is organized in practical and team projects. It is a great opportunity to work for the first time on engineering projects together with a team. A step before the working world that teaches us what an engineer is capable of and how to work in a team.
