Leaders of the Galaxy

General description

Tired of spending hours and hours struggling with math and doing physics calculations? Do you really want to be a good engineer by only locking yourself in your room memorising things?

No problem, if you would like to learn and develop all the ideal soft skills an engineer needs to have, this BEST Course is for you! You will learn how to use them and complement them with all the technical stuff you need to know. At the same time, you will learn how a leading civil and energy engineering company trains the skills of its engineers, all from an international perspective.
