"What would you fix at the Internet of today for a better Internet of Tomorrow?"

Today, we have arrived to a point where the Internet is leading every corner and aspect of the modern society’s life, with continues transformation and technological innovation, the Internet appears in many forms and shapes.

The future of the Internet is also ours. Soon with the constant developments through the years, we will be able to have all the necessary tools to shape the internet.

 

"How do you imagine your virtual environment after two, three, four or five decades? What do you think is the biggest problem with today’s internet? Unsolicited content? The overwhelming amount of advertisement? Maybe the fact that our personal data is regarded as a commodity? Or you know something that we may not even be aware of yet? How would you fix the Internet of today for a better Internet of tomorrow?"

SZTE Experience


SantiagoSantiago Vallejo - Faculty of Law and Political Sciences

I’m from Ecuador and a Ph.D. student from the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship program. I first heard about the University of Szeged on the internet. The general study environment is nice and student life in the city is lovely. With my program and the academic system, I can control my time which is a plus. The city is very affordable, and I live in the city center. One of my favorite extra-curricular activities is the Hungarian cultural programs. I have so many favorite spots, but parks are top on the list. The professors and staffs are very approachable. The mentors and classmates also did an excellent job to explore and know the city better. I hope to continue my career as a professor, and I would recommend the university to friends because it is, in general, a beautiful place.

I heard about Stipendium Hungaricum from a fellow countryman. I would love to teach at a university one day, but a Doctorate degree is often required in order to do so. That is why I came to Szeged, where I am currently working on my doctoral thesis in educational science – my special field of interest is scientific literacy of students. Life is completely different in Namibia; it is mostly a rural country and agriculture is still hardly mechanised and many homesteads in villages in the countryside are built of wood. The weather is totally different from the one in Szeged, the cold and icy weather caught me by surprise after returning from Christmas holiday, I didn’t have proper shoes so my feet were constantly freezing.
