    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.

    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.
