I always wanted to do a professional course that has a good reputation and value in the coming years. So I went for this integrated course. This program not only saved my time but also made me industry-ready. Moreover, the college also has a better placement opportunity than others. A student can get up to $90000 package easily. I applied for admission via the official website.
The course is comprehensive. All the topics are taught in-depth. We learn something new in each class. The course is updated from time to time. New topics are also added and taken in the class.
They gave me money, like a fair amount of money. I really just came here because I couldn't afford to go to other places. They also had a campus that looked pretty and it was old and very nice. The architecture was very pretty.
The curriculum was challenging but it seemed like most people felt that way so there was a large network of supportive people that helped each other out constantly and tried to make everyone else feel welcome.
