The university is traditional and hierarchical

The university is rather hierarchical and traditional. It applies an old-fashioned educational system. I would recommend it to only highly motivated students who do not count on much guidance, project work, or extracurricular activities. However, it equips student with good engineering basis.

Not that bad, not that cool - just ok

Some subjects and lecturers were okay and interesting, but there were some useless courses or teachers for whom teaching is definitely not the best idea. Luckily there are lots of student clubs for CS/IT/robotics students, so you can develop yourself there. For me that's the best part of the unviersity. The location is also pretty nice.
