This is my Credit Motivation

Hallo. My name is Arturo and at the moment I am an Student at the ETH in Zürich. I am enrolled in the Master in Statistik! - My passion are the computers and data. You know, numbers never lie :-)

Before starting with the Master I worked as an electrical engineer at Swissgrid , the company resposible for the electricity in whole switzerland. My Task was to prevent blackouts for example, a very important task with a lot of responsability. After some years I decided to start with a new challenge, and so I started with my Master in Zürich. 

I just finished with my Master Tesis (mark 5, max. 6), which was a project to analyze data from a hospital  using Machine Learning. These are a bunch of new techniques, where the computer learns to solve a difficult task. In my case, to predict deseases.  

About my financial situation: I took a loan of 50k from a bank before starting with the Master. I have been also paying it regularly since day one, and at the moment I have to pay still around 30k. I will finish my Master degree in March 2018, in around 6 months. And Afterwards I will start looking for a job. Hence I am looking for a loan of 45k. I will use 30k to refinance the bank loan, since I consider that I could try to save some money given the possible difference in the interest rate (Bank loan has an interest rate of 10%+). The remaining 15k I will use it to cover some of my expenses in the coming months until I finish the Master and for the time that it takes me to find a Job. 

In the meantime, until I finish with the master, I am also working, as a "Nachhilfelehrer" for mathematics for a couple of hours a week. I am also about to take a position at ETH until I finish the master as Research assistant 20%. 

Splendit admin: For data protection reasons, Arturo has decided to not publicly display his performance report from ETH. On average the performance report shows a mark of > 5 (max. 6). Contact Arturo for details.

Plans after study

Right after I finish with the Master, I plan to find a job. I am sure that this will not be a problem. Since I have already worked before (5 years as an electrical engineer) and now with a Master degree from the ETH in Statistics the chances are very high, that in no time I will have a position. The companies where I could work after I get my diploma are in the insurance sector, banking, or startups dedicated to data analysis.
