UNITECH 2003, UPC Barcelona
"I've always had UNITECH in my heart and when I realised that there was a vacancy for Presidency I did not doubt to run for it. I have always been quite active in the UAA after I finished the programme. My last position in the UAA Council was VP in year 2008, more than 7 years ago from now. I am fully convinced that my overall experience will globally help the network in its special focus with more senior generations. I believe that the UAA has to make the most of the full professional network by organising events according a wide range of different interests and needs. Our local setup is crucial to keep the network alive and as a Council we have to actively support it and ensure that the right people are leading initiatives to make sure things are done properly."

"From the moment I started my Unitech experience, I simply and absolutely loved it! I loved it because it was intense, challenging in many expected and unexpected ways and because it was a lot of fun. I also loved it because it gave me a unique chance to exchange ideas, theories and dreams with an incredible number of inspiring people, with whom I was sharing an unbelievable energy.I came to think of this energy as the "Unitech spirit“ and it was always clear to me that I wanted to do my part to keep this spirit alive also after my graduation. And what better way to do this than to dedicate some of my own energy to Unitech!As Vice President of the UAA I will do my best to keep the spirit up by contributing to the UAA in general and especially by helping to turn our vision of Unitech as a strong professional network into reality."

"My UNITECH experience started in 2017 in Lyon, and has been full of experiences. As the Media Representative of our year, I was able to bring to reality projects which I believed that made UNITECH stronger. The case with Buhler in Milano and the internship with Hilti in Liechtenstein allowed me to grow personal and professionally, as well as the interaction with the other participants and the whole UNITECH network. UNITECH has brought many valuable experiences to me, and taking on the Communication Officer of the UAA is a way to give back.Making the UAA stronger, enabling meaningful interactions across our diverse network, in a constantly evolving world, is a challenge that I am excited to take on. I look forward to work with the rest of the UAA council and the Local & Regional chapter Coordinators to keep the UAA members engaged!"
UNITECH 2013, ETH Zürich
"In 2013, my UNITECH journey started with an unforgettable week in Milan. Since then, I had many challenging, valuable experiences, and got to meet great people: other UNITECH students and corporate partners. As I was about to graduate this summer, I realized that I did not want this journey to end that soon. The UAA provides many opportunities to all its members to stay engaged and keep the UNITECH spirit up even after the graduation. All of this is only possible thanks to the time and devotion of its members. Therefore, I decided to run for the position of financial officer to contribute my part to the network: As a financial officer, I make sure that the UAA can always rely on stable funds to operate and grow. I look forward to work together with the other council members in the coming year."
UNITECH 2014, Politecnico di Milano
"My UNITECH journey began in 2014 and I’m happy to say it hasn’t finished yet. During my exchange at ETH, my Internships in Germany and Austria and the whole UNITECH year, not only I had the great chance of developing but also I got in touch with some of the brightest and inspiring people I have ever met."
It’s the UNITECH people that motivated me to not let the UNITECH Journey finish: this is why I decided to engage first as Local Chapter Coordinator in Milano and now as Local Unitech Chapter Coordination Officer (LUCCO). As LUCCO I work together with Local UNITECH Chapters as well as Regional Groups all around the world.
By supporting and catalyzing the communication among UNITECH alumni, I want to strengthen the bonds within the network and make interactions as easy as possible to keep the UNITECH spirit alive!"
UNITECH 2016, Politecnico di Milano
"Since my very first day of the SUW in Loughborough I understood that the ultimate key of the Unitech programme's success is the people it is formed by. Having the possibility to confront myself with other smart, motivated, enthusiastic guys was a constant source of inspiration for my personal growth. I think this spirit should not ends up with the diploma and that's why I proposed myself as ISO for the 2019. I want to keep bringing Unitechers together and I hope that organising an amazing Symposium in Milano will strengthen the bonds within the network."
