Knowledge is Power. Though this statement is often quoted, I believe that it will still be quoted for generations to come. Knowledge empowers one towards opportunity and growth, and I firmly believe that one who trusts in it will not fail in life. Experience and excellent pedagogy are the two ways through which one can amass it. So to be competent in any field, I think both experience and education play indispensable roles and I have been fortunate enough to get the best of both worlds. In my Under-graduation, I realized that the immense field of technology could be thoroughly explored only with a strong foundation and the obvious choice was to major in EEE, which was a mix of electronics, computer science and technology. To be cognizant of modern technology and the art of management, I made it a point to elect courses like, managerial economics and financial analysis, Management science and C programming. These courses strengthened my basics and laid a very strong foundation in these fields while providing me with a background on the nuances of business technology. Choosing a myriad list of courses along with persistent hard work I could score above 80% in all of them. Being chosen to represent all my project teams and my participation in organizing college events had taught me to be a better team player with the ability to step up as a leader. I had also interned at NTPC to familiarize myself with a professional environment and this engendered a confidence in me.
