About Christos Katsikiotis
My name is Christos Katsikiotis and I am a junior software engineer. From my early years I was very curious how our technological world works; how my playstation renders the graphics, the AI and many others questions. And in every time an electronic device broke, it was of course the time to perform surgical operations with the screwdriver. How else could I know what it was inside of it?
While the years passed by, my exposure to technology kept increasing. I owned my first computer, my first smartphone and so on. On every device I was trying to modify it and get to know how they worked and how I should not change any files on system32 no matter an unofficial page suggests!
The age of 17 arrived and soon I had to choose my future path. I immediately knew that CS was the perfect choice for myself. After years of struggle, I managed to enroll in the department of IT in TEITHE with the 21st higher grade. After years with a lot of studying, internship and thesis I graduated in 2015 with average grade of 7,33.
Now, I am looking for continuing my studies pursuing an MA on Software Engineering either in Scandinavia or in Netherlands.
Enrollment in TEITHE
After many months struggle, I enrolled in TEITHE having the 21st highest grade.
Start of my Internship
Around in the end of March of 2014, I got announced that a research center in France accepted me as an intern for 6 months. My internship was focused on improving wireless network efficiency by deploying movable robots which worked as routers.
