After the +2 board examination, unlike most of the kids, I was not confused in deciding upon the branch in which I should do my graduation. I even dropped the NIT Civil and CET Industrial seat for studying in this particular branch. So these were my top 5 reasons for choosing computer science and engineering in GEC, Thrissur as my stream..
1. Computer Science is the easiest of subjects in engineering to learn.
(Sleep when your friends are busy drawing their lab sheets)
2. Most of the film actresses marry software engineers!
(Isn’t that enough to motivate one?)
3. The highest paid jobs are for computer science graduates.
(less work and more pay… yummy)
4. The chances of becoming a hacker (i meant cracker) is high in taking this branch of engineering.
(Everyone likes to be Ankit Fadia.. (let us keep away the Fadia controversies for a while))
5. It is a software engineer who crashes the alien ship in the movie ‘Independence Day’.
(The guy was super cool.. “I gave it a cold.. I gave it a virus” – quote from the movie)
