From my early childhood up until now, one of my most remarkable characteristics has been my curiosity to learn. I have always had a keen interest for learning about new ideas and this; combined with my inner desire to reach a degree of excellence in any work I undertake, enable me to acquire significant knowledge on various aspects of science and technology. During my early years in school, I was introduced to ‘BASIC’ language and on how computers can be used and programmed. From then on, I became fascinated with computers and their programming. The curiosity to know more about computers motivated me into getting certified in computer courses when I was only in the 9th grade.
Right from my childhood I was fascinated by the upcoming technology. I felt it challenging to analyse how the technology in this computer world is influencing the human life. My fascination for technology and computers was carried in my school and college life. While working for some basic things like paint, preparing presentations and playing games on computers happened as a fun exercise during school days. Later I have concentrated little more on coding and solved many arithmetic and logical problems leads me to gain some knowledge on technology.
My interest in the Computer Science major at Carnegie Mellon was first piqued while I was in the Microsoft Student Partners Program, where I met a Technical Evangelist from Microsoft who graduated from the course. I had heard from him how the nation’s best graduates of Computer Science were often recruited from Carnegie Mellon. Naturally, this keen interest sparked off by my encounter with him did not just stop there as I am now sitting at my desk writing my CMU supplementary essays. As someone who has been trying to find myself within the tech sector in the future, Carnegie Mellon’s vast ties to the technology world only serve to underscore its appeal. When entering an industry that changes as rapidly as technology, the onus is on myself to ensure that I am up to date with
A computer was born at the intersection of science and human intelligence. The computer is the greatest invention in the history of human civilization. With the advent of the computer, how to use a computer is a problem, the first way is using DOS to send instructions to the computer. Then, in order to use computer more efficiently, people created the computer operating system. By visualizing an icon, a clean and simple operating environment can be used to operate computers more efficiently and perform more complex tasks.
7. Computerisation Prof. Anshuman Kumar -Dean of Management of Studies University of Baltimore U.S.A. speaking on „Management of Computer Science‟ said “with computers fast replacing the human race in office automation it is becoming imperative to all the people to be sufficiently educated in Computer Literacy”. However the statement is contradicted by Roger Penrose Rouse Bell - Professor of Mathematics at Oxford in „The Emperors of New Mind‟ where in he proved that “Computers cannot replace human beings”. They cannot take the place of Judges. But they can do well to analyse/sift/ huge data, monitor the progress and improve time management.
Obsolescence is a fact of life many of us would rather not like to face in this information era. I feel that this rapid change in technology is brought upon by research and innovation performed by various universities and organizations across the world. It is now time for me to contribute towards these researches and bring about a change. My long relationship with computer science goes back to nearly a decade, to the moment when I first learned to program. I found programming to be an interesting application of math and logic.
Computing is omnipresent and time-honored, ranging from humans to machines. Children learn to count as they begin to experience the world; students solve mathematics problems to gain insight into the logic behind the world; scientists and engineers design more powerful machines to better change the world. The linkage between humans and machines with respect to computing is computer, and it is computer scientists, being my career goal, that are managing to transcend the gap between machines and humans, and make computers perform increasingly amazing jobs. I am a senior at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, majoring in Information Security and minoring in Applied Mathematics. Early exposure to computers and secondary school education stimulated
While reasoning my intentions to pursue MEng (Master of Engineering) in Internetworking, I would like to throw some light on my career till now. I was always fascinated with Computers since my childhood and thought of becoming a Computer engineer got implanted in my mind at an early age. A career in Engineering seemed the most challenging and logical extension of my abilities. I have decided to pursue graduate studies in computer science. This decision followed after carefully appraising my academic performance and my areas of interest.
Computer scientists design and analyze algorithms to solve programs and study the performance of computer hardware and software. The problems that computer scientists encounter range from the abstract-- determining what problems can be solved with computers and the complexity of the algorithms that solve them. There’s no reason to assume learning to program will be a cakewalk, it will definitely take a lot of time and effort to get there. In order to be successful in this career, you have to be patient, adapt yourself to the new tech and a penchant for problem-solving. To begin with, a lot of people get excited by the ‘learn code’ craze.
Not until a few months ago did I finally decide on a major. It all started in my second year of high school, when I was surfing the internet. I knew that I have always wanted to get my hands on something that has to do with technology. Then I stumbled upon Computer Science Engineering, which studies the inner parts of a computer, especially software. I found this major quite alluring, because I am also highly engrossed in computers.
