Mr Anees Hussain’s studying experiences in Columbia and Cambridge Universities


From 1963 to 1971 I was at Columbia University in New York City. I first studied for the M.S in Industrial Engineering. I responded splendidly to the academic system at Columbia. We had three classes per week for each of five subjects. In each class, we were given one reading and one written assignment. Thus there were fifteen of each type of assignment, each week. In addition, we also had regular quizzes, a mid-term and a final examination. Some courses also required additional field work, such as a factory visit and a report.
