My name is Kateryna Rabchuk. I graduated from IEE NTUU "KPI" in 2014. Currently I'm working as a process engineer in a fertilizer company in Norway.
    During my master program at NTUU "KPI" I got a Quota Scheme to study at Telemark University College (Porsgrunn, Norway) where I was enrolled to the master program Systems and Control Engineering. I learned about the cooperation between IEE NTUU “KPI” and Telemark University College in 2012 from the head of the power supply department Prakhovnik Artur Veniaminovich and assos. prof. Strelkova Galina Georgievna when I was the 4th year bachelor student. Documentation and the individual curriculum for the program Quota Scheme was prepared each semester in coordination with the department of the academic mobility of NTUU «KPI».
    The Quota Scheme program became for me a good opportunity to practice and improve my English language skills, learn about features of Norwegian educational system, Norwegian language and society, expand my scientific and cultural horizons and expand my proffesional network. As an international student I have experienced different challenges during 2 years of Quota Scheme, but each time support, help and a friendly advice was provided. I would like to thank the organizers of this program and other student exchange programs, staff and students at TUC and NTUU «KPI» who was involved in one or the other way and my supervisors Galina Strelkova and Bernt Lie for their support and time. Many thanks to my friends who was there for me both in Ukraine and Norway. It was a great experience to study in a foreign country.
