Testimonial

Robin Schriver, BCS 2014, on exchange in Winter 2013.

“I was struck by how different and yet very much the same we all are as people. I was surprised by how few German students were actually enrolled in my program of choice (Autonomous Systems) at Bonn-Rhein-Sieg (0 in my classes). I learned some about robotics (since these were the courses I was taking) but the things I learned that I know I will continue to carry with me is how many amazing ideas come from different cultural backgrounds. The friends I made were from all over the world, and they shared with me viewpoints and ideas that I don't think I ever would have been exposed to if I had stayed in Canada. I can say for certain that the world would benefit from collaborations of cultures to meet goals, since great ideas come from all different places.

The computer science field has many opportunities for international collaborations, I think after my overseas experience I would be much more qualified to work in these collaborative groups. Computer science clients also tend to be more widely varied, and I would be able to work with international clients more easily and with a greater cultural understanding. The overseas experience will benefit me greatly as I finish my degree and well into my career. The most notable change is that I don't seem to let small things bother me as much as they once would have. In this way I feel that I've grown so that I can focus on larger issues without getting trapped by smaller ones."
