quite a few days without blogging.. i was busy reading for my Last/Final exam for my Master's program which was on Friday. Before I get to it, been a long 2 weeks for the preparation, 25 lectures, 1200 slides, 12 book chapters :-)) .. And since coming back from US, it's my first major exam, which means after almost 18 months.
But I enjoyed studying it, even thou I didn't need to give it as per requirements, but i wanted it in my course-work, it was on "Machine Learning and Data Mining in Bioinformatics".
So before boring you more, and getting to the NEWS of the year (for my life offcourse). I gave the exam on friday and hip hip hurray, cleared it with an awesome grade.
And IT COMPLETES MY MASTERS :-)), which means I would officially now have an International Master of Science in Computational Science and Engineering degree from TU-Munich... yupppp ;-)
I am happy about it and all the decisions, hardships, living away from home, n everything else (good and bad) which I had to go thru', came to this country (Dankeshoen Deutschland), to get a good education and degree which is finally achieved. I even had to prolong it for my SCR internship for 1 year, which was big decision also for me, but now I am satisfied with all my decisions in last few years I had to made. :-)
I wrote an Acknowledgement to thank each and everyone of you who made an impact on my life in these year (also included in my thesis):
