I had started a PhD program in a local university but could not continue due to my work schedule. A colleague then mentioned TAU to me. It turned out that my PhD program with TAU just suited me. Also I realized that TAU’s curriculum was very rich with opportunities to put learning to practice. I published more papers during my study period than I had in all my years before!
