Carnegie Mellon University
Master of Science in Information Technology (MSIT) student Abhiman Raguraman says hard work and good advice by friends and family helped him secure a highly competitive position at corporate giant, OneSteel. Abhiman was notified recently that he was one of two successful candidates for 2009 intake. ’It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” he says.
In 2007 Abhiman went to an India-South Australia trade conference in Chennai where he met the Executive Director of Carnegie Mellon University Australia, Tim Zak. “I always wanted to go to Carnegie Mellon because its computer science program is number one. The briefing Tim Zak gave really convinced me. For me, the name of Carnegie Mellon really resonated. Even so, I was well advised by my friends and peers. They helped me make the decision to come to the Australian campus,” he says
