Students' Views

"AIT was more than a second home to me; it was actually my home where I spent most of my time. My friends, colleagues and family members were all there. We were living like in a small family of similar interests and common goals. I was working on very interesting topics and projects that not only were fun to experience, but also provided the best potential anyone would like to acquire from any academic setting."
