ACE was for me a window to reach better professional opportunities. Also, I feel that the high quality of the staff, the strict program schedule and all the resources that GU has for all the students (library, labs, work shops, Interacts etc) are the right combination to provide a high quality service which becomes tangible in the students skills.
