Hello. i want to talk about my experience at the engineering school ENSAM Casablanca. For anyone living in a non african country, i wouldn't recommend at all comming to this school. It is still new and not very well equipped. and life in Casablanca can be frustrating. If you have other choices, like europe, canada... then defenitly go for it Sincerly.
