The Tuff Days

Ok so i have been making MD sheets all through the weekend (took out 10 minutes for this), also the 2nd Semester result came last week, i fared well, cool :P

But this semester is another story, i think i am a little behind the optimum preparation level for this time. But so is everyone else. We got a really good teacher in Circuits and Systems, he is really inspiring and hopefully i can do a project under him in the holidays and next semester. I really love the Fourier Transforms, the Convolutions, and Laplace Transforms. I dont like the complex Fourier series thingy though. Also i have no idea what the graph theory is about, i need to do that too, apparently its been done in class already.

With a total of 10 subjects i am taking this semester , its really hectic. Also the subjects are really intensive and heavy. Electronics, Power App and MD are the subjects i am most scared of. Its the thing about a complete engineer, by the end of 4 years, we shall be Computer+electrical+electronics+mechanical engineers. Computer Engineering is my major by the way.

Nothing much is happening other than studies at this time and my mind is also not working. I have an interesting bus incident to narrate, but will do that some other day. I just want to sleep and wake up when this semester is done.

Lookt at D Roy Chaudhary or Valkenberg for Graph theory in CS.

Graph Theory is the simplest thing we've done so far. Maybe yours is a little advanced if you've done it before, but I think it should be a piece of cake. I read my 400 page Graph Theory book(NOT prescribed) just a day before my mid semester exam.

The BSc. CompSc. seems to be a replica of your course minus the Physics, Chemistry. In calculus we basically need to finish 4 books, that's about it. Electronics is hardcore and really the subject I want to get rid of as fast as possible.

Hmmm, Graph theory is just one of the 10 chapters we have in C&S.

"The BSc. CompSc. seems to be a replica of your course minus the Physics, Chemistry. In calculus we basically need to finish 4 books, that's about it. Electronics is hardcore and really the subject I want to get rid of as fast as possible."

I havent seen your syllabus, but i am sure it must be good. The difference lies in the fact that we are supposedly doing engineering, so we must go super advanced in every topic till the time the brain goes numb.

As far as math goes, we have 4 semesters FULL of maths, everything from graphs, complex numbers, laplace, fourier, vectors, vector calculus, matrices, discrete maths etc most of which is basically calculus. Also we have special functions this sem.

Yeah...for those who get through to 2 DCE, it must be a piece of cake to study so much. But 4 idiots like me...life just seems to be getting a lot tougher.

The college is NSIT not DCE !

Abhishek Nandakumar said...

Sorry...I didn't realise it mattered that much. Never been to DCE, but NSIT is one helluva place.

When you talk about Graph Theory, doesn't it come under discrete structures and contain all those trees, travelling salesman problems, etc...?

We have a lot of chapters in graph theory...I wonder how they condensed it to 1 chapter in your course.

To clarify things (and bring both you guys to the same page), the graph theory Ankit is talking about is in Circuits and Systems (something to do with electric circuits L, R, C etc). The graph theory that Abhishek is talking of is a part of Computer Science and not Electrical engineering (but same principles are applied though the focus is different).

Hope I made some sense after studying for my midterm the whole day (no, really!)
