My personal experience with Universiti Teknologi Malaysia during the pandemic
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

For the past year, I've been studying Software Engineering at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, and my overall experience has been great. However, due to the current pandemic situation, I was forced to study online from Egypt for a year before even visiting Malaysia. This caused several issues, ranging from significant time differences to communication difficulties.
