I graduated from Amrita in 2011 with a bachelors in Computer Science and placement in a well paying software company. At Amrita, I was a beneficiary of a lot of attention and guidance from their faculty. I have seen how Amrita molds their students to achieve what they think is otherwise impossible. After an exciting tenure of two years in the industry, I realized the need for a higher degree to climb the success ladder. Amrita was the only option that came to my mind at that time. What was also particularly attractive, was their dual degree offerings. I enrolled for dual degree Masters at the Amrita Center for Cybersecurity Systems and Networks , Amritapuri, in the year 2013 and did my second year of Masters at Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam. As I am writing this, I am at VU pursuing my PhD in system security.
