    I was applying mostly to various research groups in Europe. This particular research group is well famous in our research community and I was sure that I will be able to grow as a good researcher by doing a PhD from there. The final factor to accept the offer was the topic of research which was really interesting in the nonlinear optical spectroscopy research community. So, when they offered me the position, I had nothing much to think, but accepted the offer immediately.

    Course Curriculum :

    PhD is not an instructional programme. It is an experimental research programme.

    One of my relatives did his Masters from this particular University and therefore he suggested I shift to Germany and complete my master's from this university as it has a very good curriculum and it is very affordable. I was required to apply through the online portal of the college which was totally free of cost.

    Course Curriculum :

    My course curriculum is very interesting and updated. It has all the basics to advance knowledge. It was a very rigorous program with both theoretical and practical knowledge.

    After completing my higher secondary, I went to a Consulting agency and they recommended me three colleges among which I chose as I found them to be the best suited for me. I was required to apply through the online portal of the college and was not required to pay any application fee.

    Course Curriculum :

    I was taught to create robots that work independently, computers that learn to understand images, mind-controlled prostheses, or algorithms that are getting faster and smarter.
