Improving the Performance of Routing Policies
Ali Alhayek rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's one of the Hungarian universities which produced well qualified, and educated engineers with a high level of awareness for the market requirements to start their career, and on the other side paved the way to continue their study in IT various fields. So I am so lucky to continue my MSc after my experience in my local universities so somehow it's a higher step for me...

I think the study in Obuda university could be better if they let the international and Hungarian students attend the programs together and get along, on the other hand the university should give more attention for the practical part of study.
