Experience :I completed my B.Tech (CS) from UPES in 2016. After my graduation, I joined Xebia. Here, I am working as a DevOps Consultant. I thank UPES for giving me ample opportunities for development. I got a lot of exposure to practical knowledge and acquired a sense of professionalism. It has been a privilege to be a part of UPES and being guided by top notch faculty.”
I chose UPES because of its good reputation and its creative atmosphere for pursuing the challenging International dual degree course. I acquired the scientific knowledge necessary for understanding nuclear energy production, industrial applications and enlarged my vision on management of nuclear waste with regard to the public acceptance.
During my studies, I felt that college environment was very friendly starting from teachers to students. I had the opportunity to build contacts with eminent international scientists in the field through work, practice and industrial exposure. I can’t ignore the highly cooperative administration and director of the department Dr. Ram. K. Shivpuri. I would like to thank him for his continuing support, encouragement and for providing a suitable working atmosphere.
I would also appreciate here the teaching methodology, which was quite professional in terms of multimedia power point presentations on important topics, provision of hard copies of helpful notes from mentioned books in required assignment tasks along with complete research work on the fruitful websites, indicators of assignment guided by head of department Dr. Prashanth Rawat. The superb thing about him is the blend of discipline, hard work, support and the sense of belonging he offered through the system. The learning was a blend of discipline, hard work, enthusiasm that gave me lot of confidence to take up challenges and big strides in learning. UPES is indeed a great place to study and keeps getting better and better....
Experience: My experience here in the aerospace department and with the faculty is rewarding. I learnt about the UAV, and particularly about the hexacopters. This field was almost unknown to me. During my three months spent at the campus, I got the opportunity to reinforce my understanding to design the structure with the CAD software PTC CREO. Besides, I discovered what is process of the construction used to create a drone. My project has been done successfully, thanks to the good organization that I have followed, by considering thoroughly the expectations of my mentor.
Experience : Being a UPESite is one of the most fascinating moment in my life. Year by Year i learnt many new things, rectified my mistakes, in short I am leaning to become a matured person. Engineering is quite challenging but I enjoyed alot and being a Power System Engineer I am now more technically active in today's world in power sector which is the backbone of any country. UPES provided me a platform to express myself on a challenging environment in which through lots of ups and downs I am happy to say that i am on the right track.
Experience :It’s a pleasure to be part of UPES. The course Curriculam of UPES is very contemporary and to the point. The faculty here are very cooperative and ghelpful. They help students to achieve their dreams. They help students improve both communication as well as technical skills. I am proud alumni of UPES. UPES Rocks!
Experience :Being a CS graduate with specialization in Cloud Computing & Virtualization Technology, I was fortunate to have landed a job with Xebia. I have been working at the client site as a Big Data Test Engineer which has been both exciting and challenging. And speaking about UPES, my alma mater. UPES has provided a solid platform to learn much more beyond the usual course work. Its collaborative courses make the students aware of the trending technologies in the industry. The best of UPES is their top notch faculty. They are always ready to guide you.
I choose UPES because of its rare to find specialization in energy sector and the rich faculty profile. The professors of Nuclear Science and Technology department have wide industy experience. According to me, the industrial and research experience is the strength of this course. My Professors taught every course right from the basics and in such a way that each class became a distinct new learning experience and I enjoyed each of my lectures. I got various opportunities to explore my research interest. In the process, I also got the opportunity to interact with the delegates from Ecole De Mines, Nantes, France.
Experience : UPES has given a nurturing environment for me to learn and excel. Not only is the ambience great but so are the people, from my friends to lab assistant teachers to faculty members. I got the opportunity to be a part of Lockheed Martin Payload Design Challenge where I am currentlyworking in phase III. Our team came 1st winning 40k USD after compeiting with IIT Madras that came second, IIT Delhi, BITS Pilani-Goa campus, Delhi Technological University.
Experience : UPES provides a great platform with Industry Level exposure. we get to contact and meet Industry Experts, know about the present scenario, how work is done and is executed. We have seminars as well as workshops for the same. This helps in knowing the present demand and thus helps in making or future better.
Experience: During my four years at UPES, I have not only received an unconditional support and brilliant exposure but also augmented my personal growth. The faculty members at the center for information technology are especially responsible for my overall growth. The IBM collaboration really helped me during my application process to foreign University. It was very well appreciated by universities abroad. Of the 8 universities that I made it to,most were very impressed by the coursework drawn out for us. The quality of education I received here is definitely the reason why I was chosen for a Master's program in Computer Science at The University of Vermont, a public research ivy,with a full tuition waiver and an RA position. My course curriculum was absolutely at par with what is being taught across the globe. I am looking forward to returning one day and giving back to the university in whatever capacity I can.
