    I have been disappointed that engineering courses focus on the application of the theory, not the theory itself or the mathematics behind it because professors' expectations to students are not high and they tend to avoid showing the mathematical background of the contents so that the contents are under the students' ability.

    The quality of academics here is very high. There is a lot of hands on experience and that has really helped me so far.
