Water Resources Engineering student ambassador Georg

Georg Schukling

Introducing Georg Schücking

Hi! My name is Georg and I'm the student ambassador for the Master's Programme in Water Resources Engineering. I am happy to answer questions you might have about the programme, courses, student life, life in Lund and Sweden. Please note that I cannot answer questions about the application process, scholarships, or residence permits.

I first became interested in this field of study during my undergraduate studies – Environmental Engineering in Munich – and later wrote my Bachelor’s thesis on a related topic. I am an outdoor enthusiast, avid skier and I play the piano.

My experience so far

I am really happy with my decision to study in Lund. My programme has given me the opportunity to learn about a wide range of different engineering problems one may face in the water sector. Lund University/LTH puts a lot of emphasis on individual participation. In my Master’s programme, I am continuously challenged to think for myself, work on projects and exchange ideas with my lecturers. I was very impressed by Lund when I first moved here, because it has a very unique student atmosphere that I have not experienced anywhere else.

Sweden is geographically quite close to my home country, Germany, which may be the reason why I underestimated how much social norms differ between the two countries. There are many examples of this, but one that particularly stood out to me when I first came here was the Swedish love for singing. In my impression, almost every social gathering in Lund will entail at least a certain amount of singing. If I had known that before coming, I would have practised my singing voice more.
