    9.0 /10

    I came to Germany on a family trip. Since then I decided to study here as I was very much attracted to the culture and way of living. After taking admission to the university I was also able to experience a variety of different cultures and traditions. While applying online, I have paid € 70 as the assessment charges.

    Course Curriculum :

    My course is a combination of engineering sciences, mathematics, and applied computer sciences. We will develop mathematical models for physical processes such as occur in various branches of engineering sciences. We will solve specific problems regarding physical modeling, mathematical description as well as numerical simulation and performing and evaluating complex numerical analyzes of engineering processes. Because of the international focus of CSE, we find ourselves in a multicultural environment.
