Name: Amalia Rosenthal

Major: Electrical Engineering

Why did you want to study abroad?

To travel! I also wanted a broader worldview of what it means to be an engineer.

Where did you study abroad? Why did you choose this location/program?

I studied abroad at the technical university of Denmark (DTU) in Lyngby, Denmark. I chose this location because of its focus on holistic engineering. I also appreciated the safety and accessibility to other countries that Denmark has to offer.

Best experience.

Going to 11 countries in 5 months. I felt like I was able to see so much in such a small amount of time. It really gave me a different view of life.

What you learned—either about yourself or the culture you’re living in.

I learned I am much more capable than I give myself credit for. When studying abroad, I did a lot of things I never thought I would be able to do.

Would you suggest study abroad for other ECE students? Why?

Absolutely! Not only did I become a more well-rounded engineer, but also a more well-rounded person. It is such an amazing opportunity to see how other schools function and other cultures live. Not to mention how accessible traveling around Europe is.
