I'm in 2nd year and I have loads of questions

Hi guys. I'm currently in my 4th semester of CSE. Right now I know a bit of java,C++ and python. Participated in a paper presentation in 1st year.

what are the languages and "stuff" a CS engineer must now and how many projects / paper presentations should one do during his undergrad.

I also want to know the scope of doing paper presentations, i.e. how much of value do they add to our degree and the procedure of getting one published in IEEE.

I know I could Google this out but there is a lot of information which is confusing.

@Lenvin Gonsalves - welcome to CrazyEngineers. You don't have to know a lot of things to start with. Just focus on your studies and make sure that you get good grades in engineering exams. That should be a great start.

This is the time to explore as many technologies you can and build a strong foundation in programming. Pick up any language of your choice and start working on your own projects; or better, begin contributing to open source projects on Github. That way you'll develop a good base in programming and picking up new languages won't be a problem. Java, C++ and Python - all are good programming languages and you should go with the one that you like the most.

Paper presentations is something that you should do out of interest. I don't think there's a 'minimum' number of presentations a student should do; but you should check with your University syllabus.
