Master's and doctoral students in the Department of Systems Innovation talked about the attractiveness of our department.
The past two years of pursuing my master's degree in the Department of System Innovation have brought me an incredibly memorable and valuable experience. “Interdisciplinarity” is the keyword of the Department of System Innovation. It offers a wide range of courses covering various areas and applications, allowing students the freedom to select courses based on their interests. My research focuses on a multidisciplinary topic known as biological-inorganic hybrid systems. This promising field involves the conversion of CO2 into valuable products, such as biofuels, medicine, and proteins, using solar energy. It requires knowledge from biotechnology, electrochemistry, bioinformatics, as well as mathematical modeling. Despite graduated as a pure chemistry student, I have learnt a lot though collaboration with my advisors and very friendly lab mates, who possess diverse backgrounds. The experiences in this department have strongly motivated me to pursue a Ph.D., and I am fortunate to have been accepted into the Spring GX program, which provides grants and allows me to dedicate more time to my research. I am filled with excitement and eagerly look forward to the next chapter of my research journey, and I always extend a warm welcome to outstanding freshmen who wish to join us.
