Experience: UPES for me is a constant experience of learning with domain specific expertise. The faculty are specialized in the domain specific courses. 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 : UPES has a very positive atmosphere that is essential for personality development in students. With impressive specialisation courses and good job exposure, it definitely gives students of UPES a positive edge in placements.
It is very difficult to express my feelings about the journey at UPES. It has been a hub of knowledge, a beautiful temple of excellent teachers. At the beginning I was confused about my decision about joining this branch of Nuclear Science and technology, but later it turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life. The University not only gave us knowledge or degree it gave us the skills and competencies to compete in the international platform. The quality of teaching was so high with such awesome teachers. It is hard mentioning names of all but contribution of Professor Shivpuri and our beloved HOD Professor Prashant Rawat is remarkable. The toughest of subjects like nuclear physics, quantum mechanics, radiation and detection was made so clear that it seemed we studied them from ages but actually was for the very first time. I was chosen one of the four students to go to France for the dual degree at Ecole des Mines de Nantes. The French system though is different yet it was full of knowledge. We had professors from all the government agencies of nuclear sector which jointly worked for sustainable production of nuclear power hence making France one of the leading countries for nuclear technology. The knowledge from both the universities is incomparable. We also had an experience to compete for finding an internship at the biggest sectors in France and with god’s grace, parents blessings and most importantly our teachers support and the knowledge which they imparted; we were successful to find one with good salary. I personally got my internship at CEA Saclay and my project is based on detection of X- rays from gamma ray burst using pnCCD detector (instrumentation SVOM/MXT). Both the universities have contribution of their own to our accelerating careers but it is the dedication of our beloved professors in UPES as well as in Ecole des Mines that we stand here at this position today. The journey has been one of the best experience not only through theoretical basis but the effort to let us know the practical application of everything we learned and making us get such great opportunity in life. I would be always grateful to the wonderful teachers and hope to get their blessings throughout my life. Thank you for making this journey the most memorable journey of life.
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 : I felt the curriculum & curricular activities of UPES are very well organized and I like the practical approach of teaching throughout my course. I have also made some good friends here who will stay with me rest of my life. I heard about Globalink Research Internship, Mitacs 2017 from my faculty and applied for it. I feel pleased being notified as a selected candidate in Mitacs which will surely going to boost me with immense confidence and experience.
Experience :I am from UPES 2016 Batch (Cloud Computing and Virtualization Technology). Currently, I am working as a DevOps consultant. My journey from UPES to Xebia has been a great one. UPES helped a lot in shaping my life in the right ways. Whether it was the academics or participation in extra-curricular activities, I gained immense confidence. Today, I feel more confident while dealing with the clients, handling pressure and managing my work. All this has been possible because of the freedom I got during my time in UPES, allowing me to explore my leadership skills.
I believe that the right decision at the right point does wonders. I consider myself lucky to be a part of both UPES as well as Xebia.
Experience :UPES impacted my life in many ways, got a great platform not only in academics, but also for a lot of extracurricular activities. Gave us lot of facilities which provided us with great hands-on experience which we are able to use now in our day-to-day office work. Thank you UPES.
Experience : Well if it has to be fascinating then you are reading an inspirational one right now . I used to be 125 kg in 1 year . In the desire to sit for placements of such good companies UPES is calling for . I found the need to be tenacious . So i decided to reduce . It is my third year and I am 75 kg . UPES literally "SHAPED" my career .
With a thirst for a career in the nuclear power sector, I joined M. Tech in Nuclear Science and Technology at UPES with high expectations. I am happy to say that the university has exceeded my expectations with all that it provides to its students. The Department of NST has got highly distinguished professors with first hand industrial/research experiences at very prestigious organizations such as FNAL, CERN, IGCAR, IPR etc. around the world. It has been an enlightening experience to listen to their lectures and just interact with them in general. They have taught everything so far right from the basics and built up on it. Very patiently, I was taught the concepts repeatedly until they are clear. We were also given plenty of opportunities to explore the plethora of specializations available in the nuclear industry. Following discussions with my professor, I was also able to narrow down my field of interest. We also met delegates from Ecole De Mines, Nantes, France, who interacted with us about our interests and the opportunities available in their university for Nuclear Engineering students. It made me realize the importance of the course on a global scale. This gave me a boost to learn the subject as thoroughly as possible and secure good grades that would brighten my chances at admission into the dual degree program offered by EMNantes, France. I am also extremely grateful for being provided with the wonderful opportunity of attending the “Nuclear Security Training Series” offered by US Department of State’s Partnership of Nuclear Society (PNS) in collaboration with Texas A & M University, Oakridge National Laboratories and Sandia National Laboratories, to be held in the month of June-July 2015. I look forward to more such excitement, learning and growth in the following semesters.
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....
