Students Speak

It was very good opportunity to be a part of OneWebDay celebration with a seminar conducted in our college in collaboration with Internet Society (ISOC) – India Kolkata Chapter and Computer Society of India (CSI), Kolkata Chapter, on 22nd September, 2011.

This seminar raised among us the awareness on the privacy and security of data in the Internet. It gave us an awareness of the birth of Internet which was unknown to most of us. The seminar was interactive as well as informative. If we get an opportunity to attend in this type of seminar in near future then we are glad to attend it.
