Student story: Ugochukwu George Uzoh, Environmental Health and Technology

The dream of being a researcher and solving complex environmental problems through science, led George to the University of Eastern Finland and the Master’s Degree programme in Environmental Health and Technology. Now he’s aiming at completing his Master’s thesis on carbon capture methods, which can have a significant impact on curbing climate change in the future. George feels very positive about his studies at UEF. Not only has he been impressed with the quality of teaching, but he’s also settled in nicely to life in eastern Finland ‒ to the extent that he hopes to continue towards a PhD at our university.

I’d heard that Finland has one of the best education systems in the world and I was also impressed by the rankings of the UEF as well as their international standard labs ‒ so in the end I chose the UEF.
