I benefited a lot from this double degree program which gave me the chance to participate in two kinds of education systems, study my favorite major in different styles and take a very practical internship in AVL. Besides, I witnessed a completely new way of life in Austria, and I got to know the local people, traditions, and its culture very well through this program. This program will be one of the most unforgettable and meaningful experiences in my life. Thanks a lot to all the involved people who worked for this program.
