Studying at Chindwin-PSB’s Civil Engineering Top-up Programme has been an enriching experience. I have had learnt a lot from the lecturers who come from different cultures and bring a wealth of knowledge and experience. I have had also the privilege of using the campus’ facilities which are of modern and world-class standards. In particular, the Learning Resource Center is well-equipped and has served me well in my research undertakings.
