Why did I choose to study at ECMIT?

“I wanted to join a college where I could achieve my full potential. ECMIT was highly recommended by my cousins for its small class size and excellent faculty. As I don't drive, I love that I could use the Metro or RTA bus to reach the college easily, even from Sharjah or other emirates. But the most important factor for me are the excellent curriculum and the affordable fees.”
Manal – Sharjah
