The education turned out to be interesting, very intensive and in-depth. In comparison with the education in Russia, there are differences in the approach, grading, and what was surprising from the beginning: there are more subjects than it is necessary to pass to get a diploma - so the student has the opportunity to choose the subjects that are closer to him and in which he would be interested to develop.
The naive feeling that 70% of attendance at lectures will allow you to actively work and travel home on business was destroyed instantly in the first session. I had to reconsider the principles of company management and my priorities.
A large number of disciplines, high demands, knowledge of depth of material. Lectures begin at 9 am and are finished by 6 pm. In the evenings on weekdays and at weekends - performance of tasks, layouts, drawings, which are subsequently taken into account in passing the exam. At first, understanding of the lectures was at a low level due to the contrast of everyday language and technical-educational context, especially on structural mechanics and strength of materials. But gradually you get absorbed, and after a couple of months you are already in the subject))
