Chitkara alumni empower budding engineers with technical skills, corporate challenges.
Chitkara Alumni Network and ACM Student Chapter organized interaction session on “Empowering Engineers with Technical Skills and Corporate Challenges” on April 13, 2015. Mr. Rohan Saha (Manager, PWC) and Mr. Mandeep Babra (Team Lead, Sapient), the alumni of Chitkara University of 2003-2007 Batch, interacted with fourth and sixth semester students of CSE and ECE.
The speakers enlightened the participants with industrial insights and experiences of their own. The session inspired students to open forum and understand the industrial challenges and how to deal with them, which shall be useful for them in their professional careers. Students were keen to ask a lot of questions related to career, technical skills, professional growth, and many more.
For both Mandeep and Rohan, being at the University campus after eight years of passing out was an amazing experience, with both nostalgia and excitement playing its part. Having interacted with the students of the upcoming batches, they are sure that the University is up for a lot more of corporate recognition and accolades in times to come.
Enthusiast Rohan says “From the moment I entered the gate of CU, every second spent was reminiscent of my college days. I am grateful to Madhu ma’m for inviting us and giving us the opportunity to interact with the students. Chitkara University has shown the true meaning of transformation in leap and bounds, starting with less than 500 students in our times to 6000+ students on the campus it’s just WOW for me. Be it the new blocks, indoor stadium the awesome amphitheatre CU is really providing the best facilities to students. It was a true pleasure experiencing all the love and respect from the faculty and students. I wish all the very best to my Alma mate.
From asking the right set of questions, to openness in sharing their thoughts, it felt that the students have been getting the right kind of exposure, which no doubt has always been a trade mark of Chitkara University.
From their days of 2003-07, with just Newton and Edison blocks to more than 10 buildings, each housing a center of excellence, the university has come a long way in the commitment to provide its students the best, and here they specially want to mention about the EXPLOTARIUM, which they feel is par excellence with big corporate houses in INDIA.
The other most cherish able part of this visit was a chance to meet some of their most revered teachers, mentors who guided and mentored them when they used to sit on the benches that the present students sit on today, and especially Dr. Madhu Chitkara, without whose vision all this would have not been possible.
Mandeep and Rohan wished the University and its students a lot of success in times to come.
