Wor-Wic is a small campus filled with amazing people and staff. The small classes are one thing I really liked. I had a chance to get to know my classmates more and especially my instructors. Professor Nina and Dr. Senaratne were my favorites, who fueled my interest in engineering. Professor Nina has shown the beauty of math which is the 'heart' of everything we do and see in this world. Dr. Senaratne gave me the curiosity of figuring things out, the passion in having knowledge and its power.
