As Padua University students we are accustomed to apply rigorous methodologies in order to be successful in our academic lives: it is not easy to be prepared for all the exams which could be concentrated in a very short time, exam preparation requires good time management and ability to work under pressure.
Both these skills have a long lasting impact in the professional career in order to manage projects with great complexity.
As Galilean School student I had also the possibility of having an interdisciplinary academic path and the interaction with students from all different academic backgrounds that gave me a flexible mindset. I remember discussions of news topics with student of Philosophy, Math or Biology in which I found very interesting their way to approach the problem.
Having a constant exposure in the multi-disciplinary environment benefits me in the long-term. Especially in the professional routine, this is surely a value-adder, for it enables us to analyze the problems from a different perspective. As in one of my recent projects, we apply a physics model to a bank in order to perform the client segmentation.
Padua graduates possess good reputation in all the companies I have been in contact with. The strong academic background together with extracurricular activities (such as internships or international experiences) make Padua graduates appealing candidates in the job market.

The University of Padua has taught me the value of challenge. It is difficult to change your address, language, culture and customs when you leave your country. UNIPD has a very different method than my university at Ecuador, so every step was a challenge that I chose to overcome and with this, I reaffirmed what I wanted to do in life. Challenging yourself is a perfect way to keep you open-minded, resilient, ready to act and more alive than ever.
At University of Padua I learned and I keep with me to never take anything for granted. There will be always someone better, faster, stronger, and you just cannot give up. But there will be also tons of generous and kind people, also take your time to meet them, talk to them and learn from them.
In my city there are not so many UNIPD graduates but in general it well seen to have a degree in a well-known university from a country that has arrives to certain level of development.

In my childhood, I used to spend a lot of time with my grandmother after school. Since she lived in a very dangerous neighborhood in Peru, I spent most part of my time trying to invent and build traps and stuff to make her feel more safe.
So it was about little projects, from design until construction; that feeling just made “click” something on me. Managing civil projects (no more traps) remind me that sensation, and I take care of it with passion and accuracy like it was for grandma.
The most important teaching that the University of Padua has transmitted to me is that hard working and sacrifice pays always. Every course is like real life projects: time management and organization are everything.
