ITS has many talented students in both its bachelor’s and master’s programs. However, what makes the program impressive isn’t just the ability of the students, but also their diversity. Part of this melting pot of excellence is grad student Jamuna Maharjan from Nepal.
Maharjan is a current graduate student in ITS. Before coming to Ohio University in August of 2017, she was a TA in the Advanced Engineering College in Kathmandu, Nepal. “I helped assist a number of practical labs for subjects such as computer networks and C++ programming,” said Maharjan. “It was enjoyable and definitely helped prepare me for my graduate education.”
This statement holds true considering both the graduate assistant work done by Maharjan and her research. She previously worked with Dr. Aruaz on his Smart Cities project and Dr. Kruse on his Delay Tolerant Network research. Currently, she is working on her professional project.
“I am working on a project related to assessing the network management system for the Interplanetary Overlay Network,” said Jamuna. “I am trying to assess the system’s information and embed it into an external open source version.”
Supporting this experience is Maharjan’s education within ITS. She has learned a great deal about the IT industry from her coursework. “I enjoyed a number of interesting courses in the curriculum, particularly Internet Engineering,” Maharjan said. “Along with this, I appreciate all of the professors, especially Dr. Roycroft.”
Ultimately, the well-rounded experience she has gained will prepare Maharjan for the industry. Currently, she is applying for positions in the U.S. Best of luck, Jamuna!
