Masters - Victoria University of Wellington
I enrolled for a Master of Computer Science doing courses including Security Engineering, Mobile Computation (High Performance Distributed Computing), Advanced Software Engineering, Model Driven Development, Intelligent Agents and Internet Engineering. My research project for this degree was 'The Social Cloud for Public eResearch' which invloved using Facebook APIs and working with the BOINC code base to bring more participants into BOINC. I won the research presentations for the COMP stream at Vic for my work in this area.
Around this time, after a round of discussions with my supervisor, Kris Bubendorfer (program director for Network Engineering), we came to the conclusion that there was a lot of potential for further research and development. My research project was converted into a thesis, and my degree into a Master of Engineering with a Network Engineering major. Visit my grad profile.

Bachelors - Rajagiri School of Engineering and Technology (M.G.University)
I was at RSET† from 2004 to 2008 working towards a B.Tech in Computer Science and Engineering. It is among the top 50 private Engineering colleges in India. It is one of 223 colleges spread across Kerala affiliated to M.G.University. It has ties with the State University of New York, RMIT and James Cook University, Australia among others. Esteemed guests who have visited RSET† include the President of India and the CEO of Infosys.
Schooling (6-12) - The Choice School
I was at the Choice School from 1997 to 2004 in grades 6 to 12 (final year). In my opinion, Choice School is one of the best schools (if not the best) in Cochin. The focus at Choice on holistic development has served me, and just about everyone who has studied there, very well. Being surrounded by high achievers in every field inspired me to imbibe the best in them (with varying degrees of success due to my own limitations).
Schooling (1-5) - International Indian School, Jeddah
I studied at IISJ from 1992 to 1997 in grades 1 to 5 before moving to India with my brother and mother to make use of the better educational opportunities there. Most of us have nostalgic memories of our childhoods and, in my case, most of them are from living at KAIA Camp and hanging out with some great friends who are now spread across the world (Australia, UK, USA, Singapore, ...). We hope to meet up "someday", but it'll be one epic reunion if it happens.
† RASET (Rajagiri School of Engineering and Technology) was re-abbreviated to RSET in 2009 after I had passed out.
