Computer science has been an interest for Thanapalan Sharma since his early teenage years and now he is living his dream job by being an application support engineer at Philips Morris Malaysia. Graduated in Bachelor in Computer Science (Hons) Software Engineering, Sharma mostly work in a group to take in projects which they receive from clients. To him, computer science brings many benefits and is a vast area and that made him realize the importance of technology.
His most significant accomplishment was completing a web-based speech to text system for his final year project and undertaken few projects in Philips Morris.
IMPORTANCE OF COMPUTER SCIENCE
Technology has already been playing its role during the past decades. A lot of improvement has been made and many benefits can be derived from this field.
Sharma personally recommends more programs that explain the benefits of computer science as early as school level; hopefully with this initiative, a bright future will be created for the country's youth and then provide a platform for young people who are interested in this field.
"The next 10 years is surely unpredictable because technology is speeding up the enhancement of computer science technology like the version of software updates, constantly creating new platform and introduction of new devices; but I can assure you technology is a never-dying industry, the more you learn the more demanding the market demand will be."
CITY-U is a great place to study because they have one of the best-experienced academicians in the industry. Students will be exposed to real industry situations and will be guided by the lecturers to along the way.
"I would like to thank Dr. Goyal, Mdm. Asma, Mdm. Godiswary and few more lectures who made lots of effort to make us understand the real world of computer science and I would recommend CITY-U to others because look at where I am now; I'm a CITYU product myself & I'm proud of my achievement!"
