Easy peasy

I acquired an in-depth overview about computer technology. I worked with programming languages like python, r program. Moreover I persue a course on Udemy to develop my knowledge on data science since I plan to do my masters on the stream.

It is decent to say the least. I haven't been studying here for long. I was admitted at the start of the pandemic. Hence all my classes have been online. It was convenient at first. But soon enough i found it harder to cope up with classes. Not to say they teach bad. But i don't find them as helpful as other university's when it comes to helping students study.

A swift disclosure
