Rohan Reddy Sambidi from Btech CSE at SRM University-AP is delighted to have received admission offers from numerous universities abroad. He secured admission to MS in Computer Science at Purdue University, Fort Wayne; Texas A&M University, College Station (Distance); Arizona State University, Tempe; Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago; University of South Florida, Tampa; and the University of Houston. Along with this, he received an offer from the University of Maryland, College Park for the Master of Professional Studies in Machine Learning programme. Admission offers came with a scholarship of $10,000 from ASU and $16,500 from IIT Chicago.

The suitable choice

Rohan has decided to join the MS in Computer Science programme at Arizona State University. He plans to prepare a thesis and focus his research on the field of machine learning. He wants to explore and address the challenges of designing efficient deep learning algorithms for space exploration through telescopic imagery. He is also interested in doing a few courses on theoretical computer science.

Finding the best

For selecting universities, Rohan started by acquiring a list of reputed universities from the QS Rankings website. Then he shortlisted universities by focusing on the course curriculum, faculty, and resources for student research. He has completed his bachelor’s degree at SRM university-AP with a major in Computer Science and Engineering and a minor in Physics.

Support from SRM AP

The mentorship of accomplished faculty has helped Rohan build strong foundational knowledge in his discipline. Through the course projects, UROP, and the Capstone Project, he has developed research skills and built a compelling profile essential for admission to leading universities in the USA. He expressed his gratitude to his professors and mentors, Prof Dr Ragunathan T, Dr Jatindra Kumar Dash, and Dr Murali Krishna Enduri, for their relentless guidance.
