Student Reviews

Good institution but certainly not the best!
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

Overall a solid program in terms of course structure and content however limited in terms of industry exposure and placements. Practical courses are great however lectures are not given enough importance as they should be. Teachers are good but not as engaging and helpful in practice, rather mostly there for critique.
