    One of my seniors studying there told me about this University and as I wanted to pursue my studies from abroad, I applied for the same after researching a bit about it. I applied for it through an online application form of $80. With a CGPA of 9.5 in the 12 boards, it became easy for me to stand out from others.

    Course Curriculum :

    Acting is all about practical exposure. So with more focus on practical exposure, we were made to work with the professionals and renowned theatre artists to advance our acting skills.

    My friend recommended me this university. I have done my 10+2 in Non-Medical with Mathematics, Chemistry, and Physics as major subjects which helped me to get admission in Computer Engineering. The admission procedure is online. I have submitted all my academic transcripts, application form, $80 as application fee, etc through online.

    Course Curriculum :

    The program designed by the university not only helped me to learn communication systems and signal processing, but I can also get knowledge about digital electronics; power systems; integrated circuits and devices; architectural systems; embedded systems; and multimedia and networking. Not only theoretical but practical labs are also scheduled.

    Instate tuition, Kansas State is close to home. My experience got better as time went on and I'm happy I came here.

    Course Curriculum :

    A little bit too expansive. I took a lot of bullshit classes that I shouldn't have needed to take. I took a lot of science classes that I do not need for my degree if they were classes that would have helped in my studies that would've been fine.

    Good scholarships and great town! I get to be close to my family, and get a good education. I am also an athlete so I chose this team and coach because it seemed like a good fit for me. The town is a great place to be in college, not too big or small.

    Course Curriculum :

    For the most part, I am very happy with the courses I have taken. I have lots of professors who are happy to help and passionate about their course?s material. I have had classes that increased my desire to learn about this subject.
