Why Computer Hardware and Software

Since a very early age, I have been fascinated with technology. I vividly remember the first time I was introduced to a computer. My love for computer science and its wonders has only multiplied since then. It is not just an exponentially developing field, it is also the most powerful one. I often find myself amazed at the idea that the state-of-the-art technology today can be completely obsolete before we realize it. Computer Science is undoubtedly at the forefront of this change. I have always found this change extremely inspiring. And studying Computer Engineering enables me to be a part of this change.

My experience at Richard Paul Russell Ltd

I am currently working at Richard Paul Russell Ltd as an undergraduate engineer. It involves a fixed-term contract of one year. My work at RPR is closely related to my degree course, which makes the transition from educational to industrial environment easier. I am involved in the project designing an instrument system for the company, which enables me to implement my hardware and software knowledge and skills to practical use. I mostly work on the software part of things, but understanding how everything is put together with hardware is very helpful. Working at RPR is an enriching experience in itself, not just academically but socially as well.

What interests me outside academics

I am an ardent reader. I read anything I can lay my hands on; books, magazines, newspapers, scientific journals and research papers. Apart from reading, I enjoy sports. Before joining university, I played basketball for my school and state for ten years. I also enjoy watching football. Other than that, I love traveling, visiting new places and learning about the life and culture in different parts of the world.
