How did I get to know about the course?
Well, I was looking for a course that teaches mobile navigation, car-to-x communication, computer vision and deals with intelligent vehicle communication. And, I was applying in Germany, Netherlands, Finland etc. for the same. During my bachelor studies, I met a German exchange student who informed me about the Masters in ICS course offered at TU Chemnitz. I did my own research and applied for the course. And after clearing the entrance exam, I got the opportunity to come to Germany and I’m happy with my choice. As, I get to study the field I was always interested in, along with other information and communication modules. Additionally the international exposure and studying in a new country always fascinated me. So, here I am.
