(hopefully) The last night as non-Ing. (non-M.Sc.)

Hopefully, tomorrow I will finish my MSc studies at the Technical University of Kosice, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Informatics, Department of Computers and Informatics with an MSc degree :-D Here in Slovakia the MSc studies are called “engineer” studies, so my official degree will not be “M.Sc.” but “Ing.”as an acronym for a word “Inžinier” (Engineer).

The last 6 years of my studies at the university now look like as if I have had began my first semester just recently. It was really quick, and if someone will ask me what was the university about, what has it given to me, I would probably answer that new thinking, ideas, skills and friends. The university wasn’t really about learning how to write programs in Java or C#, or how to configure a Cisco device. It was more about theoretical ideas, finding out how things are really working, what’s in the background behind technologies; it was about learning to think with open mind and learning to learn. Now staying here at the end, I have to say that it was a pretty good time (some things could be maybe different, but nothing is ideal) :-)

I would like to send a big Thanks to everyone who has helped me through my studies and my life at the university. A big Thanks goes to the Computer Networks Laboratory, its members and Mr. Frantisek Jakab. A big Thanks goes also to my family!

Thank you.

My Master’s Thesis were about VoIP. The title was “Efficient VoIP Solution for the Environment of the Technical University of Kosice”. In the thesis I described differences between VoIP and TDM networks, outlined some aspects of VoIP technologies like QoS, Security, etc. If you are interested in reading it, you will find it at http://tinyurl.com/555u7g.
