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.

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. Rajneesh Vij Head ( Sales & Operations)Ultratech RMC- PuneYear of Passing: 1999MIT Pune + - Read More.. Click to collapse 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.

I am currently an environmental engineer in the US and have worked as a consultant for the top energy companies in the world, including Exxon, BP, Valero, Dow, Lyondell, etc. I still have very fond memories of MIT as it helped shape me as an individual through the key college years. The quality of the professors and some of my peers never let me feel that we were in any shape or form inferior to the IITs or the NITs (RECs) while doing my undergrad degree. Today, I also have a Masters in Environmental Engineering from Texas A&M Kingsville, an MBA from the University of Houston and am working on my Masters in Sustainability and Environmental Management from Harvard University, but if I had to choose between the institutions purely based on sentiments and level of life knowledge gained, I would choose MIT.

Click to collapse MIT is more than just about studies and curriculum, it's about growing your mind in a myriad of ways. I still remember the first time I entered the enormous MIT campus, it was beautiful. The scenic beauty of the campus, the peace and serenity in the atmosphere, the multitude of students, the various educational institutions, the humongous sports ground and many more, just blew my mind. Apart from these amazing facilities, MIT has a beautiful spiritual aura which differentiates it from any educational institution in the city. Being from Pimpri-Chinchwad, I was a little sceptical to come so far from home, but I am glad I took that step. MIT has worked as a catalyst in paving ways for my career and eventually my life.

Two years…. I learnt many things…. Now when I look back I feel….the changes… It's the similar feeling I had when I graduated two years back… how time changes and how life keeps on moving without a pause…. People come… people go…. We laugh we cry…. Some really low moments…. Some really high…. Life is so beautiful in its own way…. In my last 2 years of MBA I met many people…. I was attached to many…. And worked and enjoyed with everybody I came across…. I discovered a different me…. More self centered, bad and self indulged me… And I improved as well in terms of public speaking, anchoring, organizing and so on… All I can now recall is that first presentation when I was shivering with stage fear…. That first interview for organizing committee… those events we organized and clubs inaugurated… first event I hosted…..those proxies… talks….. Hanging out at Durga and spice mall every now and then….. bunking classes…. Rehearsals… Practices….Improvements… Exams…. And so on…. Life was always fun and exciting here…. I have learnt very good problem handling skills and stress management….. How to meet deadlines ;)… by completing a week long assignment overnight… All those group tasks which compelled us to stay up all night with our gtalk on…. All those frequent semester exams…. These two years of my life were really good… I know what I have learnt….. I can sense the changes in me… I met some really great people…. I would not name all of them My Director Prof. Sayalee Gankar Ma'am had a great impact on me…. I still miss her presence every time I achieve something…. :-( My internship was like a turning point which gave me a very good exposure and learning experience and I really appreciate my boss who was not just a boss but also a strict teacher who taught us practical. I met many who contributed to my life in one or the other way…. I was encouraged, appreciated, criticized and discouraged time to time…. But it always added towards my learning and helped me to learn and become better with every step…. I would say this institution has been like parents to me guiding me on each and every path letting me know what should I do and what should I not do it has taught a lot of things to me how to go ahead with life and how to be on your own and I m very greatful to them as I can call them my 2nd parents as they have got me so far at a very good position in my life.

Click to collapse I had joined MIT in the year 2012. When I entered in the campus, I was awed by its infrastructure. It is a perfect college campus with all the amenities, parking spaces, security and architecture. The staff at the Civil Department made me comfortable from Day One in the college. I never felt I am at a new place with so many new faces. Initially I faced some problems due to my marks but my teachers always explained me where exactly I was lacking and after that it became quite easy for me to score in my exams. The Final Year had been an altogether different engineering degree by itself. Working on BE project, maintaining 75% attendance, completing assignments, appearing for vivas, giving other competitive exams and the actual semester exams required the skill of a professional. However, all said and done, at the end of it, all of us have come through stronger. We all have emerged as a totally different person after passing out from this college. I had taken up Civil Engineering to become like my father. The subjects which I studied at MIT have helped me a lot in grasping things at the office and I totally stand out from all other employees working in the office. All credit goes to MIT and its management for making me a good engineer. Ketaki Pandit - B.E.(CS) 2006 Passout MIT - Pune + - Read More.. Click to collapse My memories of MIT are a melange of bitter sweet experiences, nonetheless fond. The long corridors, dome of library bathed in moonlight, lush green lawns lined with almond trees, and the now non existent old canteen and SAC room are still alive in my memories. People: teachers, classmates, students, and non teaching staff- made my experience at MIT all the more rich- challenging, yet enjoyable. The friendships I made here are everlasting, the education I received is invaluable. And the prayer that started the day at MIT continues to be my companion in times of stress and disorder. MIT is the place where I discovered myself, expanded my horizons. I learnt much more than computer engineering, much more than what the textbooks teach. I learnt to take life head on, unafraid of the outcome, always believing in the strength of good over evil. I found the confidence to realize my dreams, to take the path less trodden.
