ALUMNI SPEAKS

“With Amma's grace and support from faculty members at ACNSMM, I could able to have good international research exposure by doing Ph.D. and Post-doc overseas Australia and South Korea, respectively with pioneer researchers in Battery field. Now, I am back in India in 2018 to look after my parents and family, and currently working at SRM University, Andhra Pradesh campus as Assistant Professor in Electronics and Communication Engineering. So far, I am satisfied with my job by securing two research grants from DST and Industry. Ultimately, I wish to work with the organization where I was born as a researcher (at Amrita Viswa Vidyapeetham) after fulfilling my personal commitments. Once again, thank you very much Amma, Amrita Viswa Vidyapeetham, and ACNSMM for giving me a wonderful career”.
