Software Engineering

The classes consist of lecture halls, classes, tutorial classes, and laboratories. The lecture halls are in a block of their own, and temperatures within range from "autumn chill" to "frostbite". Sounds bad, but not really. A mere sweater helps. And it's a good opportunity to show off those hip but warm threads. A student here can do lots of things. You can join in the existing groups, or make a new one. Just get the paperwork done. You'll get a budget and everything. Organize carnivals, fiestas, sport meets - if you want to do it, you can. Hold an expo if you want to It's been done before, but who cares? Do it again. It's a welcome change from studying.

However, I know that it is one of the countries in Asia which is going through a rapid development and progress. When I received an offer to study in Malaysia's first private university, I was confident that I had made the right choice . To date, it has been almost a year since I stayed here. In the beginning, it was quite tough. However, things are so much better now. As for the University, I feel that it provides quality education.
