Learning Experience

The program was good. It provides a wonderful learning opportunity.It is upto each of the students to make best use of the opportunity. Some of the professors have been extremely good adn inspiring.However, there is some scope for improvment as lectures from some of the professors have not lived upto the expectations.

Hughes Network has been a wonderful platform which provides an opportunity to working professionals to sharpen their skills while continuing to cope up with the day-to-day job requirements.

Begumpet centre has been a “wonderful” facility providing the best possible support to all the students. You and your team have been very reliable whenever we needed help. The pleasant attitude(a smile on the face whenever we ask for help has been a trademark feature) of all the support staff and your ever dependable support are memorable.
