I majored in Engineering.

Positives: This course gives a lot of knowledge on Engineering especially Electrical, Telecom and Computer Engineering - since it comes under SECTE (School of Electrical Telecom and Computer Engineering). During the first two years, its generic. But, as you go to third and fourth year, you will be to choose your major and focus on it. Group projects (3) help a lot in understanding a problem, analyzing and finding solutions. Moreover, the compulsory internship helps get an idea and feel of how its to work in the work field. Thesis plays another major part of the course. Supervisors are very helpful and encourage a lot

Negatives: The negative aspects in my opinion were that there were just a list of subjects offered. In my case, i wanted to choose another subject under power, something more real life application base. It was unavailable. I do think that they are offering those subjects now. Certain telecom subjects needed more interesting lecturers to be able to get through the 2 hour lecture.

My advice to future students is: It is a real good course if you are interested in it and it is highly accredited.
