And after one and half year I have graduated from ZUT university with final score of 4.5 / 5.0 (Excellent grade). My studying journey was very nice and full of challenges, the Szczecin city was very quiet and fit to the student’s life style. Special thanks for all Professors and Doctors who gave me knowledge and upgraded my Civil engineering skills”.

The university services are absolutely amazing (facilities, internet, documents procedure, staff, etc.)

Thirdly, the teachers of the university are absolutely helpful, kind and always try to be close to their students to hear their problems in their subjects and do their best to help students, support and motivate students to push them to demonstrate their best. Besides to make every lecture and lesson enjoyable and educational. Moreover, the lectures are really fantastic, due to the fact the lectures are a combination of education, recommendations, and discuss the problems.

Eventually, I feel very honored to study at the West Pomeranian University of Technology, Szczecin, one of the best universities in the world and in Europe. I especially like the way of teaching; it is very interactive between students and teachers. The international construction management program has developed my critical thinking, English skills and it has made me more aware of different nationalities and cultural differences.
