5.0 22/05/2019
About the course: Course was great and intense, learning curve is good they load you with lot of information in the first semester. While the deadline of the projects are very close, that was the real downside. It was overwhelming here's why it's better to take one step at a time. I had a good time in all. I would surely suggest this to all. Thanks for everything. I enjoyed everything about the course. Though the course was intense with a few issues but still I would say it was positive.
