Through the years, I havecome to realize the similarities between the way a computer works and the wayin which I have managed multiple interests and excelled at them. I entered anew phase of my life when I scored 99 out of 100 in Computer Science during myPre-University College exams which influenced my decision to take up ComputerScience as my core subject for Engineering. Being a consistentstudent, I have an undergraduate degree in Computer Science and Engineeringfrom NMAM Institute of Technology, Nitte with an aggregate of 8.57 CGPA. Exposureto subjects such as Computer Graphics, Advanced Computer Architecture, andMultimedia Processing motivated me to keep pace with the modern technology. Lessons learned in childhood about discipline and patience helped me tolearn and implement newly-acquired skills in my projects and internships andalso held me in good stead through my college life.

 I have worked on multiple projects during my undergraduate studies, oneof them was on Computer Graphics, this project mainly involved 2D visual of myCollege “NMAM Institute of Technology, Nitte” using OpenGL libraries. Thisproject further enhanced my ability to work on colour models and 3Dtransformations. I have also completed a project on Mobile ApplicationDevelopment named “Balance Sheet” which was a basic application of budgetmanagement designed using Android. This project gave a clear illustration ofhow a compiler functions and what tools we need to modify it to ensure itsoperation in a specific desired manner. Also further during vacation, I havesuccessfully designed a website for maintaining and managing the resources fora local religious community. For this, I used HTML as markup, JSP for scriptingand MySQL for storage. These ventures enhanced my learning experienceand I believe that throughout my 4-year program I have tried my best tounderstand and cultivate important skill sets out of the wide range ofpotential outcomes in the field of Computer Science.

 Besides academics, Ihave been involved in various extracurricular activities. I have participatedin inter-school events in college. I have also coordinated during theannual college fest.

At the end oftraining/internship assessment, I received an ‘A’ for my contribution towardsthe project.
