The year in EURECOM with those friends would be my best memory in my life. As to the Quality of Teaching, I would like to say : I’ve learnt much from it. The course arrangement in EURECOM, personally, I think they are integrated and combined with each other very well, I mean, it’s systematic. I am Master of Security Communication; the courses I chose are practical in my internship and help me build a good foundation. Of course, considering the complex and rapidly changing world, the more practical projects and experiments there are, the better it would be. Everything is so great. One of the hardest things in life is having words in you heart that you can’t utter, which exactly express my feeling about my brilliant life in EURECOM !
