more oppoertunites for your own projects
Nothing
Due to the fact that there are time constraints, this being a one year
program, there isn't much that really can be changed. The instructors
did a good job of packing as much of the necessary
learning into a short time period. Perhaps a second year or advanced
diploma would serve some students, but I'm not sure enough students
would opt for it to make the effort worthwhile.
more projects
I think that this program would be better if it was longer.
i think that the programing should be separate because it is totally
different and if someone isn t interested in that then there should be
no reason for there graduation to depend on something they have no
interest in

Yes

Apply mathematical concepts.

The instruction was well thought out, and the amount of hands-on lab
time was great. The range of different methods and equipment to use
made the course a good challenge, as well as rewarding.
