Teaching Experience: 6 Years

I have always been inspired by the potentials of Electronics and Telecommunication field and hence, I decided to do specialization in Telecommunication Networking and Security. I come from a family where education is always the priority. After getting good marks in high school, I got admission in Konkan Gyanpeeth College of Engineering. Various engineering subjects in this domain reaffirmed my interest in the field that made me select Data Compression and Encryption and Satellite Communication as one of elective subjects in my final year. I completed my B.E. with either First class or Distinction. With an aggregate of 72.08 %, I am a gold medalist in first year and a silver medalist in third year as well as in final year of B.E.

Then, I secured admission in Vidyalankar Institute of Technology for Master’s in Engineering. During my study, I learnt various subjects like Statistical Signal Analysis, Advanced Antennas and Arrays. My ever-growing interest in Wireless Networks made me select Next Generation Networks and Network Security as my elective subjects in the first year of my post-graduation. I successfully completed graduation with a CGPI score of 8.43, securing third rank in the institute.

Among all the projects, working on my final year projects in the entire course of my engineering was really a great experience. At the B.E. final year, I along with my team made a Handwriting Recognition System. Basically, it was a project based on Image processing in which we used MATLAB as the coding language. In my final year of M.E., I designed a proposed GPS and RFID based system that would alert vehicle drivers aurally about forthcoming road aberrations at an ideal distance before dealing with them.

Apart from academics, I have played the Synthesizer in various musical competitions. I have also participated in Technical Poster competition in Tantravihar 2014, an Intercollegiate project competition.

Working here has helped me in building my presentation skills, develop my critical thinking skills, interpersonal and team skills. I have been the class in-charge teaching varied subjects like Mobile Communication, Wireless Networks, Java and Cyber Security and Laws. I have successfully guided 7 undergraduate final year projects so far in my career at VIT.

I am a part of Placement Committee, Intensive Education Development Program, and Examination Committee. I have been organizing various big events of VIT like Tantra Vihar- Annual Intra collegiate B.E. Project competition, graduation day, convocation day and much more. I have successfully completed a two-weeks Advance level Vocational/ Industrial Training with specialization in Telecom Transmission Technologies at Satellite Earth Station at Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited.
