As I grew up, I observed that Computers find their application in a wide range of fields from high end devices in large scale industries to the smallest appliances used in homes; practically everything can be controlled by computers. So naturally when it came to picking the subject of my choice at undergraduate level, I picked Computer Science as my field of study. During my under graduation, I was exposed to subjects such as Software Engineering, Microprocessor Interfacing and Computer Network. While software engineering cleared my concepts and understanding of the actual software term, computer networks helped me understand how
