"I discovered the University of Twente through some professors from my institution in Brazil, and after deeply exploring UT’s website, I realized how connected it is to my own personal and professional aspirations."
Hey everyone! My name is Cassiano and, since August 2019, I am pursuing a Master’s of Geo-information Science and Earth Observation at the University of Twente. I was born and raised in Castro, a small town (in the Brazilian context, because it is almost the size of Enschede) in Southern Brazil that is home of a tiny Dutch village (Castrolanda), but in 2013 I moved to Curitiba to undertake a Bachelor of Civil Engineering, from which I graduated last year.

"The secret to living the life of your dreams is to start living the life of your dreams today, in every little way you possibly can."
Hello! My name is Akash Basu and I am currently a First Year Masters student of Biomedical Engineering. Being born into a family consisting of solely doctors, I was always an odd apple. Although I enjoyed the medical sciences I have always had a strong love towards numbers and mathematics. In India people either do an engineering course or become a doctor but I wanted something more, something out of the box so I decided why not merge the two fields altogether! That’s when I landed into the beautiful world of biomedical engineering and all its endless possibilities.
