There aren't heaps of positives to mention, teachers are good.
Cons : There should be more specification fields in this course.

My advice to future students is: For potential future students, I would suggest to take MIT and choose subjects according to their interest

The university is petty strict with studies. negatives : i am from computer science background so i felt i am repeating the same thing which i did in my bachelors.

My advice to future students is: come out, stay near university, be ready to spend most of your time in library and have fun with a lot of activities in the university

Positives: I like the way course has been planned. It is very up to date according to the industry requirements. Moreover, we have an option to select elective subjects from a very diverse pool of subjects. I found the quality of the assignments challenging and a great way to demonstrate the skills acquired. The course also has subjects to learn while working at industry that is industry based learning. For that you get credits and experience at the same time. There is also mandatory subject which helps students to learn professional ethics. You get an industry project and work as a team to complete it.

Negatives: Being a master degree, I expected the course to have more depth but to my surprise the subjects are the same for bachelor and master degree. The practical labs in some subjects are too easy and does not have much contribution to the final marks. The ration of students to the teacher is not optimal.

My advice to future students is: I would say that if you are looking for more depth knowledge try to get into a research based course. Also, be aware that this course would not challenge you much. The assignments could be too easy considering it is an master degree. But if you want a good environment and awesome faculties then this course is a right choice.
