Carnegie Mellon Silicon Valley

Studies in the Valley

A bit more than a month ago I moved to Santa Clara in California and started my program in Software Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University on the Silicon Valley Campus. I would like to share some of my experience that I gained after three weeks of an graduate student at CMU and in the Silicon Valley. To some degree, it is the kind of blog post I was looking for, when applying for programs and when preparing to move here. To another degree it tries to answer a common question I get from people back home: “How is studying over there?”
