My name is Gliceria Wambui, an alumni of METU NCC. I successfully graduated from the electrical and electronics engineering department on the 4th of July 2016.
When I completed my high school studies in Kenya, studying abroad wasn’t anything I had thought of at that time. However, at the end of the year 2011, I happened to hear about METU NCC from a friend and was introduced to one of their agents. I did apply for the 2012 intake and luckily got accepted with 100% scholarship. I did take a leap of faith to defer from Nairobi University and see what METU NCC had to offer.
At METU, I found a closely knit family of students, teachers and workers. The studies were quite tough but really worth it. I couldn’t think of a more busy four years of my life than those I spent at METU NCC. The little culture shock I experienced was quickly swept away through the support of my friends and the international students. The professors were very dedicated in their work and always ready to help out. Furthermore, the campus was at an ideal location for one to focus on their studies. I also got the opportunity to be a student assistant at the international students’ office for three years and for a few courses in the electrical and electronics engineering department. This experience greatly prepared me for the job market as I gained immense skills and interacted with people from various backgrounds. I can confidently say that: accepting my offer to join METU NCC, was one of the best decisions I ever made.
I would like to specially thank all the professors from the electrical and electronics engineering department, the international students’ office and all my friends who contributed greatly to the person I am today.
In my own words, “If you seek the fulfillment of a lifetime, METU is definitely the perfect answer.
