HIGHLIGHTS 

 

TeSTIMONY

My experience at EURECOM has been fantastic.

The school opened a new dimension of life to me. The level of education has been really tough yet enjoyable. I feel myself really lucky to have been a student of this prestigous institute. Studying in a multicutural environment here is really an added experience. After spending this time in this top level european institute I really dont regret for not going to US for my MS studies. I would really wanna come back here again after some years of industry experience for my Phd.

Thanks & Regards ,
