The materials and the devices that we can use are very modern and new. What I like the most is that they provide you with laboratories to go and work on your projects on their software, or just to study individually I love the cantine they have, it has a variety of food and drinks and it is very cheap. Unfortunately, the courses are not as expected. We don t do that much...
Being lazy by having a good time traveling around
As for most German universities studies are very flexible. You can choose which course to take in which year and most don't require attendance. Professors provide a script of the lecture which you learn by heart for the exam. First 3 semesters are tough, subjects get more interesting towards the end of the studies. Living cost is low which is a plus for a student budget
