IIIT Hyderabad(2012): 8.35 CGPAB.Tech in NIT Warangal:I was brought up in Hyderabad. My father worked as Assistant Manager in HCL and later went into construction business. My mother runs a private school. I completed B.Tech Civil Engineering in NIT Warangal with 8.35 CGPA.
Initially I have no clarity on the future till B.Tech fourth year. As my parents always say that higher education is the only option to grow high in career, I took up GATE as the career option. I was very happy getting 6th rank in GATE exam. I rejected the 6 lakh job offered by Capillary Technologies in the campus placements for preparing the GATE exam. The messages sent by my friends telling about their first salary, cadre and their enjoyment in the companies worried me, but my parents supported me in my endeavour.
Choosing Civil Engineering:
It is very rare that women take Civil Engineering. I am aversed to the software job and like the core jobs. So while searching for the core branch, as my father is into construction industry, I took Civil Engineering in NIT Warangal.
I have prepared combining theory and practicals. As I got good grip in the subject, I was able to easily grasp the concepts of the GATE syllabus. For theory part, I followed academic books, previous questions and practiced the bits given at the end of the chapter. Along with the classroom coaching, I studied four hours daily.
My first preference is Transportation:
My preferences in M.Tech are structures and Transportation specializations. My first option is Transportation because of the relevance it got due to the problems our society is facing on transportation. While choosing institutes, I prefer IISc Bangalore and IIT Bombay.
My future goal is to crack the Engineering services exam and I am preparing for the June exam.
Through this exam we can do some service to the society. The alternative to Engineering services is to establish a construction company.
Advice to the students:
According to me, GATE is a grand annual test for the four year Engineering course. So GATE is an easy go with command over the conceptual knowledge in the Engineering course. Covering all the syllabus of the GATE and having application oriented approach in the studies can make one champion of the GATE exam. The students who target GATE, start preparing from the third year, as the competition increases year on year and the students have to set their preparation stratedy accordingly.
