Pragya Modi

Delft University of Technology - BE Computer Science and Engineering

Short Bio:

Pragya is knowledgeable student and holds high principles in and outside of the class. She has passion for reading and also has unique interpreting perceptive. A good narrator, always carried multiple aspects on any national or international incidents. Pragya has opted Hindi in group B and scored highest 7 point. It was not a surprising for me. Because she is very keen observer and curious in the class. She has art of connecting and recalling information or events.

College Info:

“Delft University of Technology also known as TU Delft, is the largest and oldest Dutch public technological university, located in Delft, Netherlands. It counts as one of the best universities for engineering and technology worldwide, typically seen within the top 20. It is repeatedly considered the best university of technology in the Netherlands.With eight faculties and numerous research institutes, it hosts over 19,000 students (undergraduate and postgraduate), more than 2,900 scientists, and more than 2,100 support and management staff.
The university was established on 8 January 1842 by William II of the Netherlands as a Royal Academy, with the main purpose of training civil servants for the Dutch East Indies. The school rapidly expanded its research and education curriculum, becoming first a Polytechnic School in 1864, Institute of Technology in 1905, gaining full university rights, and finally changing its name to Delft University of Technology in 1986. Since 2004 TU Delft education system is divided into three tiers: bachelor, master and doctorate. Academic year is divided into two semesters: first semester from September until January and second semester from the end of January until July. Most of the lectures are available through OpenCourseWare.

Course Info:

“During the Computer Science and Engineering degree programme, you will learn how to develop software and all on data processing for the intelligent systems of today and the future. This could include medical systems, security and perhaps even the new YouTube. Mathematical analysis and modelling, logical reasoning, programming algorithms and working with concepts of programming languages are all important here, and so is collaboration. This is why, every half a year, you will work on a project with a group of fellow students, designing ‘things’ like an intelligent bot in a computer game.
The programme consists of a mixture of lectures, practical assignments, group projects and considerable self-study. Each quarter in the first year consists of three courses: a fundamental course, a more applied course and a practical course, such as a project. You will learn how to analyze and design computer systems and their underlying algorithms. You will also study the subject of computability theory, addressing such questions as: what is computing, what can computers do and what can they not do, and how can you describe machines in a mathematical way? Artificial intelligence, computer graphics, data mining and image processing are also part of the programme. Furthermore, you will learn about the underlying principles of programming languages, data structures, software quality, how to model complex systems and how users interact with such systems. You will learn to solve problems systematically. Artificial intelligence, computer graphics, data mining and image processing are also part of the programme. In addition, you will regularly collaborate with other students on projects.
