    Harsh Parekh

    Master of Engineering (Professional)

    The best part of my degree is that it doesn’t focus on one thing but gives an overall picture of everything. We do engineering subjects, programming subjects, and then data science subjects – it’s a wide variety. So, when I go to work in industry, I’ll have the knowledge in each area.
