"The teachers at the university maintains a high standard and shows that they are there for me"

Published: 12 May 2014

Krister Fältmark is 35 years old from Kiruna and studies BSc in Maintenance Engineering

What is it like to study at Luleå University of Technology ?

I chose to start my studies later in life which at first was a little tricky but soon got better. The teachers at the university maintains a high standard and shows that they are there for me.

What do you think of the city Luleå?

Last year I studied the preparatory programme in technology in Luleå , now I'm taking distance studies from Kiruna. But I can say that the university is available at anytime, there are plenty of computers and knowledgeable staff. There are also plenty of cafes and opportunities to meet new friends . Local transportation is good , so it's easy to get around in the city.
 

What are your plans after studying?

The need for Maintenance Engineers in the industry is big. So I have to decide for where and  whom I want to work cause we are needed everywhere .
 

Do you have any advice for future students ?

It is never too late to start studying. Yes it can be a little tough until you find routines that fit, as it is with all that's new .
