It sees itself as a center of university-based, non-university, and industrial research. Furthermore, it takes a role as a guarantor of research-based teaching, focused on quality and holism, thus encouraged me. My GPA of 7 helped me to get admitted here. I was required to submit an online form for an application fee of €70.
