“There are so many take-aways from MIT. So many of which have helped me get to this station of my career. If I must narrow down to the maximum impact take-aways then it has got to be the manner in which my lecturers and professors imparted knowledge, both theory and praxis. That the knowledge imparted was effective was reflected in my career in so many telling ways. MIT’s inculcation of discipline and the culture of value based education proved to be the keys that opened up my career for me. Yes, MIT provides opportunities for balanced learning, through classroom inputs as well as creating an atmosphere that helps students to develop capabilities to implement those theoretical inputs in real life conditions. In a nutshell MIT makes of its Students a force that brings concepts to life.”
“MAEER’s MIT, to me , stands apart in providing an unique opportunity to interact with and build relationships with exceptional people – fellow students, alumni, and staff. The rigorous academic curriculum is unparalleled in being supplemented by activities to develop oneself along multiple dimensions by participating and leading activities at a cultural, literary, sport and scientific level in a highly creative environment. Even after graduating many years ago, not a day goes by without feeling a sense of pride for MAEERs MIT, a deep sense of gratitude for the knowledge and confidence the institution imparted, and the friendships formed there.”
Every person has vivid memories of childhood & younger days, especially memories about their Alma-mater. The memories however revolve more around oneself and their well-being. I can very proudly say that my memories of my Alma-mater, MIT Engineering College, are more about the evolution of this great institute and about the people who made this happen. I also feel lucky that I was part of this evolution process and also got evolved as a person that I am today. Being student from the 1st batch, we were given full freedom by our beloved founder Dr. VD Karad Sir to think and implement all good initiatives. All culture of discipline, behaviour, sense of owing to our nation was deeply inculcated in our minds by our respected teachers. I wish MIT to keep reaching greater heights as always.
Experience at MIT was fantastic, and laid the foundation stone for a challenging journey ahead. I passed in 1997 (BE Civil), and in 1999 completed my MBA from MITSOM. MIT, in those days, encouraged free thinking rather than just stressing on classroom teaching. We were often encouraged to look beyond books. It helped enormously to absorb and assimilate, from various interactions happening in and around the campus. In the hindsight, I believe, this very approach helped in inculcating a sense of self-discipline and develop a 360 degree approach to problem solving.
