Pursuing A Degree In Computer Science

Improved Essays
I chose Computer Science because I love it. I've not been a ‘computers guy’ from very beginning. I caught this fever when I got my first PC. I was in 7th grade then. I learnt to use it then, and obviously struggled. There was a friend who always helped me, every problem I faced, he had solution to that on the go. I envied him. So, he developed my interest in computers. The amazing things we can accomplish using computer knowledge always amazed me. I started to explore the tech world and learnt a lot of random small things. It has become my passion and I'll pursue it. The only thing my parents told me that you are free to choose any branch that you want. So I did a little research and found out the current trending market need and what the …show more content…

Computer science is challenging, and yet dynamic. It requires people in the field to keep learning and pushing their limits. I, however, had never thought about pursuing computer science as a career until I took an introductory class in my junior year. It sparked my interest and changed my thoughts after seeing what I could do with some simple line of codes. Inspite of those countless times when I was sitting in front of the computer screen trying to figure out how to solve a problem, those ‘Aha’ moments were more precious and exciting to me every single time. These experiences slowly pulled me into the course of a new career, computer science. Pursuing a degree in this field can provide me knowledge and skills. I want to be a part of this evolution of …show more content…
With a goal to sharpen my programming skills, I interned for five months with Govardhan Institute, a company involved in the web & mobile applications development business.

    Eventually I started learning about computers in school and I found them so fun to use. My dad then took an online course in the basic office applications and I completed them all long before him and so I actually started doing his PowerPoint slides for his presentations. So I found that I kind of had a knack for using them so I really began to focus on it. I worked super hard in my Computer Studies classes and did moderately well in them. As most regular kids, I always went straight for the games whenever I got the chance often wrecking the keyboards in the process.…

    I enjoyed learning the basics of programming, which gave me insight on how a computer operates. I performed well in this class, but at the same time, I was taking a physics class, a calculus course, and other general studies courses. This was really my first rigorous semester, and I was struggling with physics and calculus. I did not seek guidance, whether it be from by professors or my peers. I decided to drop my physics class and take it the next semester, and focus on my other classes.…

    If the truth be told, I had taken on the responsibility for teaching the class for that very reason­–the desire to understand exactly what components of gaming had gripped my imagination for so many years, and to be able to create it, albeit very simply, myself. I began to spend a great deal of time researching gaming in education—evaluating game design tools, listening to podcasts and connecting with other educators. I soon realized that there was little in the way of engaging curriculum that would satisfy course requirements that I had put into place while also appealing to high school students who were most likely more interested in gaming than coursework...sound familiar? Given my background in technology, I explored a variety of online resources including Game Star Mechanic, Game Maker, and Game Salad as complete guides throughout the first semester of the course. Here I was, ready to engage students in the process of understanding the very basics of gaming design, thinking they would be as excited as I was.…
