University is more research based than prcatical. In my opinion, engineering should have more practice. In addition, the courses taught were not one directional, as there were more options to take. However, the overall study was exellent.
It has opened up my eyes to so much and expanded my opportunities greatly.
Excellent experience and offered opportunities after graduation
