Change is far more profound than what we can sense. As Charles Darwin, the father of evolution said, “Change yourself to adapt to the change because one who adapts successfully to the changing stimulus is the one who can survive.” In this process of learning, I firmly attached to the innovative and smart solutions of the Internet of Things (IOT) leads me to find how the world is interconnected with one another.
During my schooling, I always interested in learning something new and very enthusiastic to participate in Math oriented competitions. I had completed my 10th in Nagarjuna Merit High School with 95% and stood as topper of the school. I received a scholarship from Khamma Sanga (one of the Local Organizations) for this achievement. Besides academics, I grabbed every opportunity to explore my skills in mathematics and science and won Gold Medal in the International Math Olympiad, also won many prizes conducted by Vasavi club, Eenadu and Project award. My childhood was marked by enjoyment and my active involvement in the number of wide-range activities: participation and volunteering in Inter-school competitions such as sketching, cycling, school-day celebrations, etc. at several instances. I had completed my 12th in Sri Chaitanya with an aggregate of 97.2% and stood as top 2% of my state. The confidence thus gained put me among the top 2% in EAMCET (Engineering and Medical Common Entrance Test), the prestigious Engineering entrance exam that was taken around 400,000 students. So, I stepped into Velagapudi Ramakrishna Siddhartha Engineering College to fulfill my goal by taking up a bachelor’s degree under merit seat quota. Also, received a full waiver of my tuition expenses for the under-graduation.
I joined in electronics and communication engineering during my under-graduation where I learned about communication, Digital signal processing, Microprocessors and Microcontrollers, MATLAB, etc. Also, gained vast knowledge in Software Programming languages like C, C++, Java, Python, PHP and some .NET (C#, VB, ASP, MVC) technologies where I am very enthusiastic to progress my career. One of my biggest practical attempt in my career was doing an Internship about the Internet of Things (IOT) with client Smart Bridge. Learning this, I did a project of Attendance Management using IOT during my third year. To explore in this platform, added one more project Smart Shopping Cart to my curriculum during my final year. My other projects as part of my curriculum also always included this area to quench my thirst.
Doing an internship at Defence Research and Development Laboratory (DRDL) in Hyderabad, I learned about the electronics and electrical systems with the help of AutoCAD software; I experienced an organizational work environment by interacting with many scientists. Furthermore, I did another internship at South Central Railway (SCR) in Vijayawada, I directed towards safety properties which encode the control logic for the railway interlocking. I was successful in proving it merits practically, and I believe in my attempts would make a good impression to discover new paths to overcome challenges and inspire my juniors in the department. It was smooth sailing all through with respect to my academics and secured top 5% in the college. Along with the academics, I won the first prize in a technical quiz for a national fest conducted by one of another autonomous college, also secured second place in mind control robot organized by ark techno solutions in association with Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras. Also, I organized various events like poster presentation, quiz in national fest in my college and participated in several instances. Apart from these, received a certificate from the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Kakinada for volunteering the best services in National Service Scheme. My engineering days molded me into a mature and professional person and I was recruited by a multinational company Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) which was world’s 10th largest service provider a few months ago assigned as a role of Technology Business Unit (TBU) for the position of Assistant System Engineer.
Since my childhood, I have been very fond of problem-solving related subjects like Calculus, Probability, Statistics, MATLAB, Economics, Finance, etc. To explore my knowledge in understanding the business skills needed to work for an enterprise-level organization, I am very excited to pursue my Master’s in Management Information Systems to enhance my career not only in Technical part but also in Business. Thank you for the opportunity given to express myself.
