Student Feedback

  • This course went into different topics related to data centers with plenty of case study material. It surpassed my expectations.

    The course helped me to improve my knowledge about energy standards. I had opportunity to see what is happening in other similar companies and see how to react on very dynamic and every day changing data center life.
