WOJCIECH PLOWAS case study

“Being awarded with a beX Scholarship meant that I was able to further develop my knowledge in the field of Structural/Timber engineering which otherwise would be impossible. It was a great morale boost which had a positive impact on my studies and brought me one step closer to the rewarding carrier in the field I’m very interested in.”
