Thanks to a scholarship granted by the Faculty of Theology and Sciences (FATEC), in Brazil, Naiara Bianchi fulfilled her dream of doing a student exchange abroad. Thus, in July 2018, she undertook her journey to Chile to study at Duoc UC and expand her horizons.
It was an opportunity that has exceeded all the expectations of this student of Engineering in Electricity and Industrial Automation. “I am very happy to have chosen this Institution, since it has excellent levels of technology and infrastructure. I was lucky to have lessons in the Smart Grid laboratory, which is unique in the country and one of the best in the region.”
Likewise, Naiara highlighted the closeness and warmth of the teachers, collaborators and her classmates. “At Duoc UC I have received quality training with people always willing to help, and I also found a great family.”
New culture, new adaptation
According to the student, the biggest difficulties -at the beginning- were the cultural shock, the command of the Spanish language and the distance from her family. However, she invited future exchange students to lose their fear to this type of experience.
“It’s something unique in life, with learnings that will make them better people, richer in professional knowledge and stories to share”, Bianchi concluded.
