The university is has a nice environment for studies but I’m the engineering department, we study more theory than having praticals
My University surprised me in a positive way. Since my Master's Degree course was joint with the Florida International University, we had the opportunity to have a Degree taught in english through a very practical method according which I developed real projects. I am overall very satisfied of my achievements at the University that I hope to finish maximum in October.
La mia università anche se dal lato organizzativo è poco sviluppata, dal lato della formazione personale e intellettivo è molto valida. Ciò mi ha portato ad apprendere e ad accresce il mio bagaglio culturale ed educativo.
