Students feedbacks

University of Wroclaw
The Summer Student Program give me the opportunity to develop, gain new knowledge and skills. Thanks to the opportunity to participate in the program, I was able to get to know the activities of the Institute, its extensive research in many scientific fields. Moreover, I was able to take a closer look at measuring devices such as NERA and learn how they work. I evaluate the monthly internship positively.
