    From the initial stage of my high school education, I was very clear with my aim to pursue my graduation in mechanical engineering. After completing my senior secondary examination, I took admission in a two year diploma program which was in the same domain. And without having any single year gap I applied to several universities in Canada for my graduation. I got acceptance letter from many of them but this university got fitted completely in my budget and as well as expectations.

    Course Curriculum :

    In my course structure, in the initial phase of my graduation some basic mechanism subjects were there. My course duration was of five years which included the training part as well in the industry. It was a combination of theoretical and practical aspects of engineering with deal with the fluid, thermal and robotics dynamics.

    There were many reasons behind opting for this university like it was in top 20 universities in Canada, acknowledged world wide in engineering segment, etc. After completing my senior secondary education, I started my preparation for language proficiency test. According to my perception, the difficulty level of the admission process here was quite moderate and my cost of application form was $ 110 for each course.

    Course Curriculum :

    According to my opinion, I loved the course curriculum that I had been given here. My strength was in software and communication systems, and logical designs, computer networking and concurrent designing. All over I would say it was not that much easy as I thought about it. I enjoyed my course throughly.

    The thought of studying in a small class size and interacting with my faculty members on regular basis encouraged me to apply for this university. My education counselor also recommended this university to me, so I decided to apply here by paying $120 while submitted my application form online.
