I am a senior student in my under graduate program in Mechanical Engineering at the reputed Birla Institute of Technology and Science. Education has been my supreme strength. I have always tried my best to excel in academics and produced good results consistently. I am particularly interested in mathematics and physics and their profound implications in day-to-day life have strongly inspired me to pursue undergraduate studies in engineering. Perhaps, my first biggest challenge towards this was to obtain admission in a reputed institute. In 2001, I qualified to BITS, Pilani securing a berth among the top 900 students from all over India.
Education in BITS has given me a strong foundation in Engineering. The exhaustive nature of courses and a competitive grading system has instilled in me a desire to delve deeper into the subjects and deliver the best in me. My sophomore and junior years consisted of several courses on basic sciences and mathematics that have immensely helped me appreciate my core discipline courses and contribute to projects. Following these two years, I did an eight-week summer internship at a large-scale fastener making industry. - Sundram Fasteners Ltd, Chennai. I worked on the design of an autoloader for grinding machines in the Special Purpose Machine department. This first industrial experience has envisaged in me, the importance of Industrial Engineering and spurred me to consider this as my career and future.
Among the various core courses I did in my senior year, I particularly enjoyed optimization and operations research. Other courses like Design of machine elements, Transport phenomena, computer-aided design, Dynamics of machines and vibrations have helped me obtain a very good understanding of mechanical engineering as a whole. I have scored excellent grades in my field courses. To add to this, I also stood first in the class in Solid Mechanics and third in Production Techniques. To further my interest in what I have learnt...
