ROBERT MORRIS UNIVERSITY REVIEW

I was always interested in pursuing a college education from an American public university, near a relatively large city so that I could have access to good job opportunities. As I began my search, I applied to several universities across the USA including RMU. I had registered on the online portal as a new user and had submitted all my transcripts, along with a $100 application fee.


Course Curriculum - 

Our curriculum was excellent. We learned new things every single day and computer network programming. With strong growth in the demand for network administrators, this program gave us the necessary education and skills to succeed as one.
