It was a thrilling experience, even though, my laptop was a Mac system, so I had trouble accessing some of the applications. but, thankfully the organizers replied to me rapidly; whenever I had trouble or a question (in general). The staffs that organized the camp were teachers and mentors from AUS were the best! They were all patient with us and the level of the program was somehow meeting the levels of everyone attending, from the beginners to the advanced students. There is no way, to not have new information in every lesson. That's what I liked about it! Looking back at the camp, I will say that this camp was the highlight of my vacation. I would like to thank every teacher and organizer that made this a major success yet so much fun!"

    "In 6 days, I learned that when you are confident and when you know what tools to use, then you will win the game of school and of life. At AUS summer camp I learned I can achieve any goal I have. The best part of the whole experience was the home IO on which I proved to myself I can do anything I put my mind to. I have learned many lessons that will serve me well over the course of my lifetime. This summer it was accepting myself and becoming more confident. Before these past two summers. Today. I have grown as a person trusting my ability to accomplish goals, problem solve, and look deeper than the surface into situations and relationships. I feel more prepared to accept and meet challenges in life, rather than giving up or worse, not even trying. I realize if I am willing to face my fears I will have the confidence to succeed in life with whatever I do."

    "My experience in this camp has been a fantastic one for a variety of reasons. The material taught in the camp itself was undoubtedly carefully considered and prepared by the instructors, as any amount of observation would quickly lead to you understanding that this camp was made with students of all educational backgrounds in mind, minimizing the amount of context and experience needed while maximizing the benefit gained. Furthermore, it was a very diverse amount of topics, which will surely help all students in selecting which branch of computer science and engineering intrigues them the most. Additionally, the instructors were all very helpful: If you had any question at any time, they were more than willing to spend all the time needed until you understood fully, and were willing to take some of their own time after class to continue explaining, if there was any confusion. Personally, I was left inspired by the satisfaction of studying what I enjoy, and will continue studying CSE with that feeling in mind."

Every session was extremely instructive and illuminating. All instructors were exceptionally kind, smart, and experienced in the areas they taught. By the end of every lesson, I excitedly told my friends and family about the new knowledge I gained. I greatly encourage all students whether interested in a computer career or not, to join the AUS camp. Great thanks to every member and instructor who organized this camp! "

Not only did i get introduced to topics from Computer Science that I was totally unfamiliar with, but I was also able to properly understand many topics that I had only touched upon before. The instructors were passionate about their subjects and were very friendly, having no hesitation at all to answer our questions. They encouraged and helped us when we struggled with problems and presented an extraordinary amount of patience. I would most definitely recommend this camp to anyone who is interested in computer science but don't know where to start as I guarantee this camp will give them a very solid overview on the most important and interesting parts from the subject. Overall, a very productive and useful way to spend my Spring Break!"

    I am really glad I registered for and attended this camp. At first, I thought that we would only cover the basics as it was just a 6-day camp, but in reality, we covered a lot. Everything from coding in python to logic gates, IOT, machine learning, making mobile applications and computer networking. Not only did we cover the theory but practiced it by programming on our own. As someone aiming to go into the computer science field this camp was highly beneficial for me as it gave me an insight into 6 different fields that I could go into. Thank you to the professors for making this camp fun and interactive and AUS CSE for conducting it. Really recommend this camp to anyone wanting to go into this field or simply wanting to gain knowledge.

    I want to start this off with saying the AUSCSE camp was fantastic, nothing comes close to it. Sadly, it was for only 6 days, but in those six days, you have taught me and have broadened my view for the Computer Science field. I once again want to express my thanks to all of the great professors who were there when there were technical issues with the students and left no student behind. Thank you so much for this opportunity and I hope whoever is reading this a great day.

    The 6 days camp was a journey on its own. It helped to explore some of the most important sub-categories of Computer Science and Engineering. Thanks to the camp I am able to narrow down my choices within the field and grab my interest for one topic. The most wonderful element about the camp is the instructor. All the instructors were very friendly and patient to clear our doubts and keep every student on the same page regardless of our limit of knowledge of the topic. Overall, it was an interesting, fun and excellent experience and would like to attend more camps as this.

    This summer camp organized by AUS CSE was a spectacular camp which introduced me to the different computer concepts that exists. I was able to learn how computers communicate with 1s and 0s and how data is delivered to the components connected to the computer. I was able to learn basic Python commands that I didn't know and learnt them to use them with my code. I learnt the basics of creating an app with the use of Thunkable and also learnt about machine learning and how it analyses data to create predictions. These concepts introduced me to the new computing concepts and helped me understand what each of them are what are the uses of each concept. This was an informative, interesting and fun camp and I really enjoyed it. Thank you AUS CSE!

    A journey is how I portray this camp. The mind-boggling amount of information you can absorb in such a short period of time is quite perplexing. I have no words to express my gratitude to the camp's organizers! Every day was a new adventure and a step closer to the goal of finishing the journey. I personally gained a great deal of knowledge, and I appreciate the time and effort that went into preparing and putting this camp together. Finally, nothing compares to the sense of accomplishment you get from effectively achieving your goals by using your time wisely. I urge you not to hesitate if you have the opportunity to attend the camp. Who knows? This may be the sole act that causes your brain to shift gears in the proper direction to your future major or success.
