"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


Imane_CherbiImane Cherbi - Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences

My name is Cherbi Imane and I am 23 years old from Algeria. I am spending my last semester at the University of Szeged Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. Being an MA student of Applied Linguistics, University of Szeged offered me a chance to gain sufficient knowledge about my field of study. I choose the University of Szeged simply because it is a highly ranked academic institution both nationally and internationally; also because of the variety of programs that they have for international students.

I love everything in Szeged: every corner of every street, I will always keep them in my heart. I take photos of the city when walking around and I am planning to launch a blog to promote this beautiful corner of Hungary among international students. People of Szeged are caring, always smiling and we are living peacefully together. I have never felt isolated or neglected. As a coffee lover, i always enjoy having my favorite type of coffee in different coffees in Szeged. Lookin for calmness and nature vibes, I would certainly walk by the Tisza river whenever I want.


HardeepHardeep Kaur - Faculty of Sciences and Informatics - Biology PhD

Many of my Indian friends had already been studying here, and SZTE was very popular among them because of its quality education, research and the international community. Without any doubt I submitted my application for Biology PhD. Now, this city serves second home to me: beautiful, clean and modern at the same time carrying its ethnicity. Once I leave the city, I will miss everything about Szeged especially my friends and workplace.
