Programme director

DMT is an excellent programme with a well-designed curriculum. In this programme, I learned knowledge not only from books but also from practice, including experiments and projects. Throughout my undergraduate career, I learned about algorithms, mathematics, and electronic engineering. The courses I took laid a solid foundation for further research and study in artificial intelligence, mobile computing, computer graphics, and signal processing.
