    I wanted to get my masters from abroad, so I could settle down there. I found out about this college while scrolling online. They have great placement as well as a good reputation. So, I took a chance and applied to be accepted. I had to apply with an online form costing about $80.

    Course Curriculum :

    The main goal of my programme is to graduate us with a computer science core, an engineering-oriented core of game development. Plus the curriculum had an emphasis on one of the primary research directions in infrastructure for in-game development, perception and gaming, immersion, and serious games. I was taught a lot of things.

    I was searching for a college offering a good college offering a course of my interest with a great curriculum in the US as the colleges in US emphasize more on our skills and personality development. As my grades were pretty good, I applied to all the high level colleges in the USA, from them I got accepted in 3 of them but I opted for this one. I applied through the online admission portal and paid an application fee of $80.

    Course Curriculum :

    Through the curriculum, we build a strong foundation in the basics—physical sciences, mathematics, and computer science that all of are necessary for a successful understanding of engineering. We also learn the design skills needed to work in such diverse areas as robotics, medical devices, data systems, digital networks, manufacturing, information processing, transportation systems, and embedded control systems.
