The admission to IIM C may sound a lot of hard work to some people. But with sheer dedication and fair amount of smart work, one can achieve it easily avoiding the toil. I had a tough choice to make among family business and further management studies. But the exposure and business management skills which one can get from management studies outweighed the family business option. And hence begins my two year PGP(Post Graduation Programme), IIM C journey. I hope this achievement will inspire the upcoming batches and I wish many more students achieve their own superior goals in their life.

Four years spent in this institute have completely transformed me both professionally and personally. Even when the batch that I am part of is the first batch of Chemical Engineering at School of Engineering and Applied Science, Ahmedabad University, there isn’t any stone that has been left unturned in providing us the best of knowledge and skills that are essential as an engineer. The curriculum is designed to ensure solid base of theory and the project based learning approach has made me think practically while tackling any problem as part of a course project. Good faculty to student ratio, state of the art and well managed laboratory facilities and latest computational facilities check all the well needed boxes that make the overall academic experience at SEAS-Ahmedabad University an enriching one. One of the things where Ahmedabad University really stands apart is the importance given to research at undergraduate level itself. As a part of Undergraduate Research Programme (UGRP), students are given an opportunity to carry out research projects under faculties while making use of advanced research facilities available here. Lastly, I must emphasise on the kind of culture that has developed over the years at Ahmedabad University. I can approach faculties at any time to discuss any kind of academic or professional matters without any hesitation. There is great deal of interaction between students of different programs during interdisciplinary courses as well as student activities. You are bound to have life worth of experience once you are a part of Ahmedabad University.

Pursuing a branch of my choice/interest was all that mattered when I started. At the same time, I was apprehensive of attending such a young University, especially being a part of the first batch of mechanical engineering. Being fully aware of the risks involved, I took the proverbial plunge and I have never looked back. With its unique project based learning pedagogy and emphasis on cross disciplinary learning, Ahmedabad University has been the perfect facilitator in my quest to explore the fascinating world of engineering sciences and has gone a long way in helping me realising my potential. I feel I have been very lucky to have had the opportunity to be taught by some of the best professors in the field. They have always been very welcoming and encouraging in not just mine, but also in the academic pursuits of my peers. It is my belief that, the kind of freedom to share and debate views pertaining to academic matters sets us apart as a University. Apart from my academic endeavours, being a part of the University PBL team that visited Agastya foundation along with the students of Olin and Babson colleges helped me shape my views about the reach that my education potentially possesses and has made me realise the value of the qualities of a team based approach to tackling problems in the real world.

It was my dream to study in the institution which may help me develop a quest for learning and help me develop my overall personality. I am fortunate that I am able to fulfill my dream of being a student in Institute of Engineering & Technology (initially IICT). It was a wonderful year. The beautiful camp, extraordinary knowledgeable faculty, cooperative staff and enthusiastic batch-mates made my first year full of learning and beautiful memories. I admire and appreciate the Project-based approach and Peer-to-Peer learning - teaching methods that helped me a lot to learn new things and gather knowledge in our areas of interests. The classroom interaction is an excellent way of learning from each other. We always wanted to stay longer in the college and study in Library or work on various projects or experimenting in labs rather than going HOME early ! I am sure that the coming years will be more enjoyable.

IET is an institute which provides over-all grooming. We not only learn technical subjects but we also get the opportunity to learn user-centric design and communication skills. All our learning is project-based which helps us to understand the concepts better, broaden our vision and develop great bond with others. The course structure is so well designed that keeps us par with other institutes.Professors here are specialized in their field and are ever-ready to clarify our doubts and help us in projects. Labs are well designed and infrastructure of college is also great. Studying in IET enhances your technical knowledge as well as analytical skills.

Going back in time, one year from now, most of us were in a state of perplexity, not knowing which Institute we would become a part of. Uncertainty prevailed throughout the process of admission. Being a new Institute, IICT did not give me complete surety of being 'the Institute', compared to the other, older well established ones. However, this unsurety lasted only until the first day of college. One month of college passed and all of us had become enthusiastic learners, excited and eager to grasp something new every day. This college implements remarkable and innovative project based pedagogy. It has helped all of us in developing the 'key' skills like problem solving, critical and analytical thinking, practical application of knowledge, leadership, management, and many more, essential to face the real world. This course is completely different from other normal engineering courses. It has taught us to think broad and relate design, innovation and ICT to society. The academic curriculum is designed in such a way that each subject builds on previous classes while at the same time complimenting both the classes and projects running concurrently. The professors are highly qualified and influential, supporting each student in achieving his/her very best. Their emphasis on group work helped excel in our strengths and allowed for extra help in areas that are more challenging. It trained us to work with different types of people in all kinds of environments. At the end I would like to say that studying at IET is a challenging, exciting and marvelous experience. We have loads of fun and enjoyment in all the cultural events, workshops and talks. Classes in an interactive fashion allowed me to build on my own experience by learning from my classmates as well as the professors. This program's focus on problem solving using real life scenarios was the perfect grounding for working in any fast-paced and dynamic business environment.
