Feedback of foreign student
This summer I studied via Erasmus in Bratislava at STU. My supervisor and colleagues were very helpful, they helped me managing the necessary issues like transport and accommodation. It was nice that they welcomed me at the bus station and took me to my dormitory. I learned working with processing plants, and computing softwares. I enjoyed also my free time, as Slovakia is located close to the many other popular and touristic European countries. To conclude, if you want to study abroad via Erasmus, STU is the right choice.
I'm a PhD student at Ampyx Power B.V. (NL) and University of Freiburg (GE) on Embedded Optimization. I spent one week at STU for attend a workshop on software development and I also had the chance to exchange my knowledge with the PhD students of the faculty of chemical and food technology. They have several laboratory which allow to test and verify their control algorithms. Therefore the student will learn at 360 degree control theory and deal with reality. The living cost is not high, hence if you have e.g. an Erasmus scholarship you can survive without any effort. Finally, I warmly recommend to go in STU for all the people which are interested on courses such MPC and Optimization due to the high level of of experience in this field from both professors and PhD (student).

I am a 3rd year PhD student at Laboratoire Réactions et Génie des Procédés (LRGP), Nancy - France. I spent one week in the Department of Information Engineering and Process Control, Faculty of Chemical and Food Technology, STU in Bratislava, for a research collaboration. They were really cooperative, their remarks and discussions were very interesting and the city was lovely. I am writing this from the Christmas market in the Main square.

I am a PhD student at ShanghaiTech University, China. Last week, I spent a quite exciting time as a visiting student at the Institute of Information Engineering, Automation, and Mathematics, Faculty of Chemical and Food Technology, STU in Bratislava. Not only the advanced laboratory which has top class equipments, but also the nice people and how professional they are in research impressed me deeply. Beside this, Bratislava is a beautiful city and public transportation in this city is very convenient which you can take to go any places without problems. I strongly recommend related students to study at this institute of STU. It will be a memorable experience.

I am a PhD student at Norwegian University of Science and Technology. I spent 2 months as a visiting student at STU and I found it a very pleasant experience working in such a nice and friendly atmosphere. The collaboration between the students is very good. There are seminars and lectures on different topics regularly which you can attend freely. Apart from that, I suggest STU to those student who wish to apply their methods on an experimental case due to the equipped laboratories at STU. The city is also nice and very cheap, and finding a convenient accommodation is not difficult.
Parisa, PhD student
STU is the top university in Slovakia specialized in science and technology. With strong collaborations with well known universities in Europe and USA, e.g., University of California Berkeley, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne, CentraleSupelec etc., this university is an ideal destination for study and research. You can find here a very friendly, collaborative and creative working environment. The professors and PhD students are very kind, hard working and particularly productive. Surprisingly, in a nice city like Bratislava, the price is really very cheap.
Ngoc Anh, PhD student
I am a doctoral student from Automatic Control Department (ACD), Centrale Supelec, France. I would like to orient this message to those considering pursuing an exchange program at STU in Bratislava. The exchange program at STU in Bratislava gave me exposure to a new organized way of thinking and gave me strong impression about the work that I was interested in. The research team at the Institute of Information Engineering, Automation and Mathematics is flexible, innovative and well connected to the top ranking institutes from the European Union. The laboratory are top class and could provide the visiting scientists with a deep insights in the fields of control, system identification, and membrane based applications. Last but not least, the professors and the research students here are very friendly and communicative that they might impose a reasonable influence on our careers.

"Quality education with high standards, scenic beauty, staying well within budget"; that is what Institute of Information Engineering, Automation, and Mathematics, and Bratislava have provided me. The institute is fully loaded with modern standards of education and research, and with highly skilled teaching and research team always ready to help. Therefore I would recommend this institute if engineering and learning is a person's interest.
Bratislava is a very affordable city and that makes it very popular amongst students, as I know the scholarship and budget of students is always from hand to mouth. Apart from being accommodative, Bratislava bears many more traits, that are attractive for stay and education here:
1) Centre point - Bratislava is the heart of central Europe, as cities like Budapest, Vienna, Prague are in a very close proximity, and in fact, Vienna is just a few kilometers away and people do up-down on daily basis between these two cities.
2) Currency - One the most satisfying trait is the currency, i.e. Euros. So, a person has no need to pay conversion charges, bank charges, as the currency is common in many countries.
3) Nature - The city is situated on the banks of river Danube, and many beautiful bridges and boats are there to enjoy it.
I myself enjoy canoeing here a lot. The city has many parks, forests and hills for the nature lovers, hikers and bikers. In short, I would like to recommend this institute for quality education and learning experience, while Bratislava because of its amazing and happening, day as well as night life along with environmental beauty at affordable budget.
