Natasha Agustin Ikhsan (GEDES Master's course)

The graduate major in Global Engineering for Development, Environment and Society (GEDES) offers a range of interdisciplinary subject areas which revolve around the development-environment-society nexus in the international context. Courses are taught in ways that provoke into deep thinking and intellectual debates on real global challenges, which will further encourage you to make a difference, whether it be locally or globally. Also, GEDES facilitates students to develop an original piece of research on the avenues of their interest. Along the way, I had a lot of fun from making global connections and international friends!
