The Summer School at RWTH was a unique opportunity. It was a two-week program which provided me with academic knowledge, social experiences, inter cultural exchanges and an overview on current development technologies in Germany. This experience provided me with my first contact with a university outside my home country and it was crucial to the development of my education.
