During my undergraduate studies, my interest became more focused on computation and simulation after I attend a FluidSim seminar that was on the design and simulation of pneumatic and hydraulic circuits. After my undergraduate studies at the university, I decided to search for a university where I would be more exposed to the nature of computational sciences and its numerous applications. I was influenced by the computational program at Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech), Moscow, Russia, for this reason, I applied to Skoltech and was admitted into Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) now Information Science and Technology at Skoltech.
I got the registration link from one of my friends who studied Industrial Mathematics from the same university with me whom we had both attended a scholarship seminar organized by a senior colleague from the same university. I perused the university website, immediately I got the link and also researched about Skoltech. I saw their collaborations and most importantly they had the course I wanted to study plus all the courses were offered in English!
