Exchange student from Tianjin University

Yuxi Li, Yu Miao and Qin Zhen have been the three pioneers of the exchange. Here, Yuxi Li has given the answers on a few questions we had asked him about his time in Iceland and at ISE.
Iceland has some of the best geothermal resources worldwide.
I had the opportunity to get involved with professionals from leading Icelandic companies.
The emphasis on interdisciplinary learning is invaluable in an increasingly complex and connected world.
I am now well prepared to work in an international, multicultural environment.
I had the unique opportunity to combine economics, technology, engineering and science into one comprehensive degree.
Iceland has to be one of the best places, if not the best, to study sustainable energy.
The fieldwork, experienced teachers, and industry collaboration make ISE the perfect place to further my studies of geothermal energy.
I am very pleased with the curriculum, freedom of research and academic quality of the program and love living in Iceland.
The one of the reasons I chose ISE, is Iceland's involvement and experience in the field of geothermal energy.
