it was awesome although I was from electrical and electronics background I loved the course.
Very expensive and School was far from biggest cities. Style was very free and relaxed. Too much free time.
The city is called Notodden, Telemark university college...but there wasn├»t this choice so I picked Kongsberg because it is the closest city.
