Shashank says

“My favourite thing about the ECE program at U-M is the knowledge I can gain from the faculty. These faculty have tons of industry experience and often give examples during lectures which really makes you understand the concept on a deeper level. The environment around you is always energetic and positive making it the favourite thing about U-M, for me.”
