    SOUTH KOREAN STUDENT'S REVIEW

    Following completing my schooling I searched for the university that offered employability, quality lectures, individualized service package, support, additional training, and study guidance in order to develop my professional profile. Then I came across The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. I decided to study here as it possesses all the features that I wanted to acquire.


    Course Curriculum - 

    My course will be completed over a duration of 3 years that comprises of 6 semesters. The classes kicked off with the preparatory course in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, and English. After two years of concept-based studies, I will be given a chance to choose from specialization in either Automotive Engineering, Energy Engineering or Global Production Management. I liked this method of teaching as all of us will be on the same page at the end of the day.
