Portrait of Parantapa Sawant, ECM alumnus and PhD student at Offenburg University and University of Freiburg

His search for higher education in these branches brought him to Germany, which he believes is a country with highly developed energy research and a sense of great environmental responsibility. Here he pursued the International Master Degree Program in "Energy Conversion and Management" at our Graduate School from 2009 till 2011. After graduation he worked for two years in an Engineering company in Ludwigshafen.

Following his aim to accumulate important skills and international exposure for supporting Energy and Environmental Projects in developing countries he started pursuing his PhD in 2015 at the Graduate School for Decentralised and Sustainable Energy Systems based in HS Offenburg and University of Freiburg. 

He tips that the Professors of ECM, the Course Co-ordinators, other Staff at the University and so much as the unique Senior Service did a great job to ensure good quality education in a very friendly and integrated environment. On his experience at HSO, he promptly says:-“A healthy cultural exchange, wonderful friends and great student times is how I remember my days at the Offenburg University of Applied Sciences”.
