My experience during the program at Aachen was incredible. Having an experience to study at RWTH Aachen University for three weeks is a good opportunity for me to know more about how engineering is developing in Germany. Besides that, I have made a lot of friends and relationships with students from all around the world. This is also a good chance for me to understand better about cultural differences. Everything was so well planned and coordinated including the hostel, the transportation, and even the food. I would recommend to all of my friends to join the program and feel about studying abroad in Germany, especially at RWTH Aachen University.
