"JEMARO was the perfect opportunity to study robotics in Europe and in Japan"


What’s your name and where do you come from?

I’m Wathek, from Tunisia.

Before JEMARO, what and where did you study?

I studied Mechatronics Engineering in Istanbul, Turkey.

What options were you considering after your Bachelor’s? Why did you choose JEMARO?

I wanted to do a master's degree, JEMARO was the perfect opportunity, robotics in Europe + Japan.

What is the course you’ve enjoyed the most so far, and why?

The course I liked the most was Natural Language Processing, it made me realize the connection between our spoken language and the meanings behind it, using engineering tools to expose the underlying complex connections in words.

What is your research topic?

I work on Persistent attacker avoidance in a multi-robotic system using reinforcement learning

Why did you choose ECN/UNIGE/WUT?

I choose WUT. Warsaw is a very beautiful city and WUT is one of the most prestigious universities to study engineering.

Any cultural shocks since arriving in your home institution?

Due to the covid pandemic we could not really get in touch with other students or attend classes physically. In Japan the situation was a bit different as I mainly focused on my research, but I’d say Japan is an experience to live, not a shock but a nice adventure!

What do you find the most challenging in JEMARO?

I would say the non-academic stuff, visa procedures, settling in and getting adapted to the new environment.

What do you want to do after JEMARO?

I would probably start working.

A final word?

JEMARO was a dream come true, despite all the challenges we as first batch faced it was a very nice experience and enriched me on so many levels.
