4 months in Togo

- by Johannes Thyssen Tishman

My name is Johannes Thyssen Tishman and I am a graduate of the Mechanical Engineering programme at TH Wildau. As an international student from Mexico, I have enjoyed getting to know other cultures during my studies, whether through the high number of international students or the various exchange opportunities supported by TH Wildau.  My trip to Togo is a good example of this. From March to July 2021, I visited the city of Kara in the north of Togo to support renewable energy projects resulting from the cooperation between TH Wildau and the University of Kara. Updates and highlights of my trip are documented in the following blog.
