    The course covers all the basic details and concepts of mechanical engineering. A lot of focus is given on physics and mathematics which is very much required in it. The takes you through all the practical applications of mechanical engineering and all the different tools and processes involved in it.

    My mum and dad had been the French residence and I also have stayed in France at a very young age. So I found this college in Canada which is a public university but french language college, so I made up my mind to join the college in some courses related to literature. Applying online to the college was not that hard, they only charged a fee of $85.

    Course Curriculum :

    I liked the course curriculum. It covered everything that I expected to. The focus of the course is mainly towards the literature of France but it also includes aspects like culture, the mind set of french people, and the food and dressing habits of the french people.
