Hello browser! I do not update this page regularly. I used to use this as a bookmark page during my university days. However you will find some of my work from then below. Contact me (venkatraman “dot” sundar “at” utoronto “dot” ca) if you have any legitimate questions.

A little about me:

Joined University of Toronto in 2003 to pursue Mineral Engineering. Enjoyed my 4 years there. While there, I had the opportunity to visit 6 mines in Ontario and Québec, and take 3 courses in the field; 2 in surface geological mapping and one in land surveying.

Work I am proud of:

I wrote a scrabble program. To play, you must download the following and save them in C:\scr\ Then, run board.exe.

1. Board

2. Board executable

3. Dictionary

4. Log file

Looking at a temperature-pressure phase diagram of iron: "I don’t know how anyone would like to get something to a hundred thousand atmospheres. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere near it. I would like to watch from miles away." – Prof. Iain Sommerville, MSE202 Winter 2005.
