    1) I found my desired course(AI & ML) 2) Moderate fee structure 3) Cost of living - considerable/moderate

    Course Curriculum :

    UC is well structured syllabus and always inline with current industry standard/technology and well reputed and one of the top ranking university.

    I was planning to go for education in sustainable construction which I found will be put to best used from a good and reputed university and hence chose the university.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course was indeed good but the university did not provide any on campus placement and which make it difficult to step onn in the market and finding a job so I would definitely give it a thumbs down in planning to work or get placed.

    My university provided me with a good learning platform. With their extended help as well as with the support from my teachers, I was able to learn a lot which surely will help me a lot in my future. I applied to the university with the help of an application called My UC.

    Course Curriculum :

    The tools and the rigor topics of Economics were included in my course curriculum. I was also required to indulge in a broad range of analytical and business skills and took the course that applied economic reasoning. Since the focus of the course was on managerial economics and informed decision making I was able to understand the things better.
