Buddies Without Borders Online Forums prepare students for higher education around the world. This weekend, we will hear from Ms. Vargas, the Admission Officer for undergraduate students at Jacobs University, Bremen, Germany.
Jacobs University is one of the top private, English-taught universities in Germany, with the highest standards in research and teaching following an interdisciplinary concept. It aims to strengthen people and markets with innovative solutions and advanced training programs. For example, recently its startup "WasteAnt" is using artificial intelligence to make efficient use of waste:
"On average, each person in Germany produced 476 kilograms of household waste in 2020. It is incinerated, recycled, landfilled. What exactly arrives at the incineration and sorting plants, the quality and composition of the waste, is usually not known in advance. Organic waste becomes mixed in with non-compostable plastic waste, electronic waste in residual waste. The waste materials have to be sorted out at great expense, and in waste recycling plants they often lead to costly damage and downtime."
