Most of them not only being highly qualified but also industry experts, thus the learning here has been quite a fulfilling and interesting process. The infrastructure, faculty, industry exposure, guest lectures, technical and cultural fests have all been the value drivers for a high amount of professional and personal personality development.
Although I did my minor project in fabrication of vertical liquid separator. It was also a big learning experience. My internship at Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd., Mumbai was the most enriching part of my student life. I received an opportunity to gain real life experience. The industrial tour was one power packed experience where I not only saw my knowledge converted to reality at Reliance Patalganga and GAIL user. No beach and no filmy location was left unexplored and endless hours of shopping made our trip a complete week of crazy fun and frolic.
Experience : I had interest in research oriented engineering from the day one of the commencement of my course. I chose to be a part of Aerospace industry as it is evolving and much in demand. I am a keen learner of new technologies and keep myself updated with the same. My fluid Mechanics Professor motivated me to read scholarly articles related to the subjects. During my third semester I participated in many National and International Conferences related to my stream; and with the help of my mentor, I wrote and presented six research papers namely: A Preliminary Study of Radar: Avionics Prospective; Multichannel RADAR Bands for Target Detection; Aircraft Dynamics and Performance: High Gust Condition Aspect; Aircraft Braking System with Emphasis On Fail-Safe Technology; Hypersonic Aerodynamics of Aerospace Vehicle Design: Basic Approach And Study; Aircraft Fueling System: An Application of Refueling Operation at various conferences. It is a great privilege for me to study here under guidance of expert faculty in my college.
