“What was good was the diversity of the students, quality of the speakers, and constructive nature of discussion.”
“The broader aspect of the course focusing on general aspects of innovation and technology, most of the other PhD courses are too narrow and restrict from thinking about the bigger picture.”
“Getting to know different kinds of people and making a couple of friends has been one of the biggest advantages of this course concerning the benefits in the future.”
