    After completion of my bachelor's, I was searching for colleges that offer programs about satellites and engineering related to it. I was unable to find the same at my place. So I searched for colleges in Germany as it has less cost of accommodation as well as for studies. I applied to this college online via the International office accessible at the official website of the college.

    Course Curriculum :

    My studies provided in-depth knowledge by means of different subjects. It is inculcating enough knowledge in us so that we can do well in the same field and can have a better future.
