Summer University 2014, Lausanne

« The strongest point, without hesitation, was the networking. Getting To meet so many students that are in the same work domain as myself was benefic. This summer university has widely opened doors of opportunities for my future professional career. »

« Altogether it’s a different enriching experience. Meeting new people and learning about their culture was the best part in this program which we do not get to do if we visit the country for just tourism. »

« The country itself is amazing, and I felt extremely fortunate to have my visit their heavily subsidized. The academic work was on par with my experiences at University in California, and the accommodations (specifically the housing and rail pass) made the entire trip very comfortable. I was particularly lucky to choose a lab partner with whom I got along very well, and visiting his family over the final weekend of the program was the highlight of my trip. I learned a great deal about Switzerland and its culture, and I definitely plan to return. »

« The whole thing was perfectly organized. It was indeed a great experience to study along with students from different countries. Cultural events and food was organized very well. Everything everywhere was very clean and neat. The level of importance and priority the Swiss people gave us was enormous. We were always treated very kindly and like one of their own. We got all the help we needed. Food, accommodation, cultural events, Communication regarding Higher Studies with different Lecturers and program organizers motivated the students to do their masters in Switzerland, Europe. I am inspired to do my masters now. I would like to thank each and every one who was involved in organizing, helping, coordinating the event wholeheartedly. Special thanks to Dr. Stephen Robert for coordinating the whole event for the Computer Science Summer University. I would be eagerly waiting for future Summer Universities abroad. »

« The program not only gave me an opportunity to interact and attend lectures of experts, but – most importantly – gave me an understanding of the culture and lifestyles of students and people of Switzerland and US. The program was very rich in technological and cultural exchange. It helped in bringing about a holistic development in me. The classroom atmosphere was very different from that we have in India and was great experience. The French course was very innovative. The course on Eco-computing was something new and interesting. I particularly enjoyed the cultural activities and the excursions/picnics where I got to know each other (teachers and students alike) more informally. These also helped me get a closer look at the rich Swiss culture and traditions. The trip to Moleson, Gruyere and Broc with friends, where I got to taste the authentic Swiss Cheese Fondue and Chocolates is one of the best trips I had in my life. I was very much touched by the hospitality of the Swiss. Their friendly nature, be it a fellow student or the lady in the canteen or a stranger on the street, made me feel very much at home. »
