Learning by doing
Students spend more than 60% of their time on real projects so they can sharpen their skills through practice.
Students are grouped into teams of 5. Groups compete and students grade is made of 50% of their own grade and 50% of their team grade.
Learning by teaching
Senior students become teachers and coaches to the junior year students. That’s the best way to ensure concept and skills have been fully acquired.
