Student Profile(s)

Girish

My program enables me to work with the datasets to extract useful information out of the raw data and build data driven applications around that. My experience at the University has been quite enriched, I have learnt to multi-task and some serious time management skills as the projects, lectures and coursework always kept me busy. My favourite thing so far has been my stay on campus, as it is very green and beautiful, and I felt so connected to nature here.

After completing my course, I wish to work in UK and gain some international exposure and work experience to strengthen my work profile.
