Joining Synapse has been one of the greatest decisions I have taken during my studies. The best thing about being a member of Synapse is the crazy, fun, intelligent and caring people your work with – which becomes an amazing group of friends and network afterwards. Project management, communication and presentation skills are also just a few of the things you hone as a Synapsee. Would I do it all over again? No doubt!
Sven Hollmann, M.Sc.Eng.Stud
The energy and enthusiasm of the team every time we came together was contagious, and I’m still very proud of all the events and concepts we developed together during my time. More than in any other course or job I learned to work together extremely efficiently, how to communicate with different stakeholders from companies and academia, and there is a lot of freedom to get creative and initiate new projects. All of that together with a group of fun, like-minded students that soon became true friends.
