TESTIMONY

 

I had a very memorable stay at EURECOM. We got a personal treatment from both, faculty and the administrative staff. I’m really grateful for that.

The first thing I noticed at EURECOM was such a colourful multicultural environment. That gives a knowhow about the world, a huge international platform for knowledge sharing. Regarding academics, the course content was updated. We were given a wide knowledge about many latest technologies. All the courses were very well designed and practically oriented.

Towards the end of my studies, I joined Hitachi's ICTL lab as a final semester intern. My work at Hitachi was closely related to EURECOM's research activities. I believe, EURECOM's industry oriented curriculum helped me a lot to mould my profile in accordance with the current job market requirements. Currently I'm working as a Software Consultant at Amadeus, which is the world's largest transaction processor for the global travel and tourism industry. EURECOM's alumni are truly global and widespread. Today, at this point of my career, I firmly believe EURECOM played a major role in my achievements and continues to give its students an edge in today's competitive job scenario. I thank EURECOM for the foundation and confidence it provided.


Thanks and Regards,
Vineet KUMAR
