Azamat is a freshman in the Software Engineering Program. This is his story:
American University of Central Asia is the most well-known university in Central Asia. I am lucky and proud to say that AUCA is located precisely in my country, and it gives me an amazing opportunity to get an American education without having to leave home. I have been interested in technology since I was in high school. People could see my interest while I was trying to fix computers and other electronics. I really like to figure out problems by myself, but I also wanted to learn more about computers and how they work. AUCA’s Software Engineering program is what I want to study.
Along with obtaining an education, my next goals are to discover something new and incredible in technology, and to devise more valuable and practical pieces of technology. I would like to work for a place like Google or Microsoft, and I know that several AUCA Alumni from Software Engineering already work for these places.
