Student Reviews

Experience as a student in Switzerland
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars
The university have good teacherds and good teaching methods. Some sort of racism from whites students towards me. Cost of living is very expensive
Energy Systems Engineering

It is a very interesting program, where I gained great understanding on the global energy issues, in basic Engineering as well as Business and economics. As it is a relatively new program it was a bit badly organized sometimes and no broad choice of module was possible.
Hard modules and strict methods.
