Hey! My name is Kinan Wannous from Syria. I’m currently studying at the Brno University of Technology (BUT), Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Communication. I’m in the last year of my P.H.D. program.
I’m really interested in leadership, group dynamics and communications. In the future I'd like to work with both coaching and leadership, maybe as a leadership developer. But who knows what the future will bring.
What is your favourite thing about BUT?
It's a very social and very involved campus.
What is a fun fact about you?
I am an old soul. I love classic rock and older movies. I love to play the guitar.
What has helped you the most at BUT?
Career Counseling because they helped me narrow down my major choices. The counsellors helped guide me through what courses I would need to take.

Reasons to come and study in the Czech Republic:
High-quality education and research, especially in Sciences, Engineering and Medicine, has a long tradition in the Czech Republic.
Safe location in the heart of Europe
Studying in the Czech Republic places you in the middle of Europe and gives you a great chance to travel all over the continent and discover countries and places you might otherwise not have the opportunity to visit.
Cultural experience and fascinating history
Owing to its geographic location, the Czech Republic is situated in the intersection of many cultures. The country's culture was historically formed mainly by Slavonic, German (Austrian) influences, which resulted in a rich Central-European cultural heritage and lifestyle.
Living in Brno
Brno is the economic and cultural centre of the South Moravian region. It is the country's second largest city. Brno's architecture reflects the town's long and rich history, including such outstanding functionalist works as the Brno Trade Fair Grounds (host to more than 50 international trade fairs each year). The city skyline is dominated by the Špilberk Castle, which was originally a Gothic palace and later became a baroque fortress. Other city features are the St. Peter's and St. Paul's Cathedral on Petrov Hill and the Old Town Hall.
