    Programing, decoding, coding and algorithm writing were my hobbies but later they became my passion, I wanted to oursue my further studies from the USA and in order to do that, I started looking for college there and soon after found a college with great infrastructure and camous. I applied here through the online portal and paid $30 for it.

    Course Curriculum :

    The programming that is taught is just amazing. What in the books is just nothing compared to what is actually taught to us. The program helps us broaden and deepen their understanding of computer architecture, embedded systems, or VLSI design.
