Master’s Student Anusha Subramaniam
She’s a graduate assistant at the National Foreign Language Center based on campus, which provides opportunities for Americans to learn languages such as Chinese, Japanese, Arabic and Persian. There, Subramaniam is part of a team developing applications that allow clients to find, access and use the center’s online language instructional tools more quickly and efficiently.
With previous training in computer science and engineering and two years’ experience as a software engineer in private industry in India, Subramaniam was drawn to the iSchool for two reasons: the quality of its programs, and its proximity to the information nexus of Washington, D.C.
“This is where I want to end up for a professional career, and the number of information resources in the region present a lot of opportunities,” she says.
