    STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

    LIFE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI

    Being a science student I decided to pursue engineering from the USA. I did a lot of research and had obtained guidance from my school teachers who told me about the University of Missouri, which is among the top 10 universities for undergraduate studies in the USA. I had applied to many universities but wanted to go to this university as it offered financial aids to international students at good rates. I had applied at the university through an online application form after paying $65 as an application fee.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The program helped me learn about electrical power generation, communication systems, instrumentation, circuit design, and microprocessor design. We had the opportunity to gain hands-on experience as well as research experience and the opportunity to develop new products. The skills required in the curriculum were- active listening, comprehensions, writing, and critical thinking. The subjects included were engineering and technology, computers and electronics, mathematics, and design.

    STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

    MY VIEWS ON THE DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI - ST. LOUIS

    India has a lot of competition and the procedure to go through is quite difficult. Hence, studying abroad and giving exams is competitive yet simple. I gave the application in all the universities of the USA that offer Accountancy at the Bachelors's level. Better Assistance, Flexible schedule, Hands-on learning environment was provided at the University of Missouri - St. Louis. Therefore, I took admission in this university.


    Course Curriculum - 

    An engaging curriculum is provided to us to provide a streamlined degree pathway. It is a 120-credit hour program that helps to establish a clear path to our future.
