Student Testimonials

…“..Whatever I have, understanding about the fundamental principles of life both spiritual, as well as technical, I gained during my life in Amrita. The place (Ettimadai) and the Amrita System played a significant role in molding my intellect and character. Career Gain: The teaching methodology, friendly culture and behaviour I received from Amrita is the way I have chosen to apply while I teach and understand my students. .

Abraham P. A. (2008-2010 MTech Embedded Systems)
Asst. Professor , Jyothi Engineering College, Cheruthuruthy

…“..I will describe the two years @Amrita as the transition period in my life. It helped me to take up and face the challenges in life with more confidence. I never had a better and knowledgeable interaction with teachers before I joined Amrita. Embedded Systems was my first option. but when I started with the course I dint feel any kind of passion initially. My teachers and classmates defenitely played a huge role in motivating me. Life @ Amrita is a beautiful and unforgettable memory for me. "

Archana P. Ajit (2011-2013 MTech Embedded Systems)
Systems Engineer, Infosys ltd, Mysore

…“..The life in Amrita campus Ettimadai was too good. It helped me to have a view on how to think, search and work, towards the fulfillment of the idea in my mind. The facilities and guidance Amrita has provided me, especially in my project work and academics were so good. I always tried my maximum to utilize the facilities. Especially embedded system lab gave excellent exposure to wide varieties of hardwares and software tools. AMBE research lab gave me real time problems and the faculties supported me, beyond their work timings, in my work to find the solutions for all those. Other campus facilities were also awesome. But I always missed the sports and games in my 2 years. Try to encourage that too. Even if there were options to play, M.Tech Students find it hard to enjoy, at least me. I would suggest to conduct some tournaments, and this will surely help to make the life in the campus even better.

Mithun Haridas T. P. (2010-2012 MTech Embedded Systems)

…“..My life at Amrita was awesome, i had lived my most memorable moment of life in the AMRITA COLLEGE. I had enjoyed every moment starting from admission into the collage till last day. And all this happen because of the good climate, good and clean environment, excellent hotel facilities, good food, good infrastructure. With all this the caring nature of the teacher made it feel like at home. Teachers not only helped mentally but their contribution in the studies was phenomenon. They have always maintained the proper weightage between theory and practical knowledge during the course. The Lab facility was also very satisfactory with upto date systems, good equipment and other resources to implement new innovation. Being an embedded design engineer in my latest company all these knowledge with i gain in Amrita collage helped me lot to co-up with the company."

Aiswarya S. Nair (2010-2012 MTech Embedded Systems)
Assistant Professor, Christ University, Bangalore

…“..It is a great pleasure to speak something about my time spent in M. Tech. at Amrita. I gained a lot of knowledge in programming and learnt to groom myself as a proffessional that I am now. The lab facilities were good and the teachers were too. I learnt a lot during my 2 year stay at amrita. I currently use only the programmimg skills that i gained during my time at M. Tech. However currently I know that I may not be able to use all what I have learnt, but in time it will surely help me in my future. It really was a great pleasure to study at amrita under teachers as good as you too.

Sudheesh (2010-2012 MTech Embedded Systems)
Programmer Analyst, CTS

…“..The facilities in AMRITA was very good. The lab facilities were nice. Especially the syllabus which are upto date to the current technologies are very helpful in looking for PhD positions. Even after 2 years of my M.Tech completion the syllabus I learnt in AMRITA doesnt backtrack with current developing technologies. AMRITA campus was well equipped in all amenities. The ambience of the Coimbatore Campus is well preserved and boasts for learning minds. Amrita dining is unmatched. AMRITA has also taught me to handle any difficult situations which may be faced in work life. I had a wonderful experience from AMRITA university. Proud to be AMRITIAN.

Muthu Kumar B (2010-2012 M.Tech. Embedded Systems)
Programmer Analyst, CTS

…“.. The life at Amrita University gave me a lot confidence in both my academic and personal track. I feel that I got more practical experience in my respective academic area (Electronics and Communication) while doing my M-Tech from Amrita. Also I get interested in doing research oriented works. Apart from that, more changes happened in my personal behavior, for example, I achieved better communication skills now as compared to the that before coming to Amrita. "

…“..Its the dedication of the staff that I appreciate the most in Amrita. You were all so eager to help us any time any day and hats off for that. For people who are really interested in learning, Amrita is a great place to pursue their studies. Vast library, well equipped labs where you can go in and work any time, ever helping lab staff and of course the lovely campus add on to the pleasure of learning there. My two years there helped me understand the importance of doing work with passion and the outcomes of it which is a very important lifel esson.

…“..College is where I learned to take my limitation and turn it into an opportunity! To take an opportunity and turn it into an adventure by dreaming BIG! And this small thought rests its roots at our favorite hangout at Amrita - Our one and only Embedded Sys Lab! Its not an institution. It is a full fledged home, far from home!

Karthika A. Warrier (2011-2013 MTech Embedded Systems)
