Student Reviews

Master at UPV
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

It is a lot of work: lots of projects and labs that do not allow to study for the exams if you do not organise properly. At the end you are really prepared to solve problems on your own.

Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

Pretty good professors but a stunningly poor programme (at least the one offered by the French Department)
