  • P.R. Roshan

    Course : M.Tech Chemical Engineering

    Experience :We are P.R. Roshan’s (M.Tech Chemical Engineering) parents and would like to take this opportunity to express our thoughts.
    As the session almost draws to a close we would like to thank the management, teachers, administrative staff and our special thanks to the cook for second trusted home.
    My son had a wonderful time and enjoyed the stay and experience at UPES. Short…..but definitely memorable and close to his heart. He has found some good friends. Needless to say he has grown in many ways and it will surely make a good foundation for his future.
    We are aware that it takes a lot of hard work in the background by the team of UPES to make this happen and most often all the efforts remain in shadow. But the results are the reflection of what has gone into the student.
    Hence, we would like to thank and share our deep appreciation and gratitude to the entire team of UPES for Nurturing, facilitating and encouraging growth in the most positive and supportive manner.
    Thanks & Regards
    Janani & Rajakrishnakanth, Chennai
