WORKSHOPS ARE THE BEST PART

The international workshops have been very productive as I have learnt a lot so far, they are totally the best part of the MCH because we as students push our knowledge and skills to the maximum to learn in a short time period. The quality of the professors has been impressive and all of them have taught us something different architectural related.
