I want to be a software engineer, because technology and especially the PC related stuff are my life. I can spend my whole day reading or doing something related about this things. The idea of me being 18 hours a day, developing my own software, seems like a perfect job. And the idea of me developing software to make peoples life easier, is a good life.
I want to study here because, besides being one of the best school of technology, the teaching methods (peer-to-peer and projects), the no tuition upfront, the location, seems like the perfect place to become a Software engineer.
