    LIFE AT CARLETON COLLEGE

    To feel a new part of the world, to develop my language skills, and to gain a bit more direction academically. These were some of the reasons that motivated me to study outside India. After exploring the subject of my interest I started to apply to different universities. I got selected at Carleton College and took admission.


    Course Curriculum - 

    This course will introduce me to computer programming and the design of algorithms. By writing programs to solve problems in areas such as image processing, text processing, and simple games, I will be learning about recursive and iterative algorithms, complexity analysis, and other technical things.
