    I found the quality of the lectures pretty high and my tuition was waived due to having fundings over my program.

    This was perfect, pretty easy but at the same time I learned a lot. Even though a lot of those were with the undergrads and because of it you learned on an undergrad level. At the beginning of each course it was said that grad students will have a different exam but when it was time to do the exam it was exactly the same. I think you should have more strictly grad courses.

    Really good Engineering program! Small class sizes (about 20-30 students per class) make for great interaction with teachers. All of my teachers know my name and they really care for students' success. Also, there is a good amount of hands-on practice alongside traditional lectures.
