To be considered as the state-of-the-art, in any kind of education and research environment, critical and analytical thinking need to be driving forces. My first impression is that ADA faculty members are good at instilling these two merits. It is my honor to serve with distinguished professors under the ADA University`s “Leading Innovation and Responsible Citizenship” motto.
