Prepared for a fruitful future

Prepared for a fruitful future

The final-year engineering students are back after their last semester break. Even as they enter a turning point in their lives, the students have their plan of action chalked out.

As they eagerly anticipate joining the corporate bandwagon, the final-semester
students share their plans with Metrolife. 

Pointing out that majority of his batch mates have been placed, Junaid Ali, an eighth-semester student from PES Institute of Technology, South Campus says, “At this point in time, most of us are looking for our second offer. Most of my batch mates already have one offer in hand.”

The students, who are working on their final-semester project, say that meeting the deadlines is what’s worrying them at the moment. “We’re spending sleepless nights to finish our projects and seminars,” he says.

Junaid, who has made up his mind to work for two years before pursuing an MBA
adds, “After a lot of thought, I have come to this decision.

An MBA degree is more useful than a master’s degree. And my prospects will be
better if I have some work experience.” Saisiri Indrakanti, a student from BMS Institute of Technology, says that even though they are just into the semester, it has turned out to be more hectic than she imagined. “Even though we have
few subjects this semester, we are piled with other work so much so that we’re working hard to complete it. I’ve decided exactly what I want to do, so I’m not worried,” she says.

Saisiri goes on to add, “I’ll be working for two years and not longer than that. I don’t want to get used to working, which might make it difficult to get back to academics. Anyway, getting into a good MBA college requires upto five years of work experience.

While I work, I will also prepare for the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT).”  Gurneet Kaur, a final-year computer science engineering student, is currently concentrating on her last year in college. She says that the placements this year have been good, which has eased tension. “When it started off in August, it was a bit slow.

But later it really picked up.The number of companies that come have come in and the number of those who have got placed have been much better this year. The scene has been much better than the previous years,” explains Gurneet, adding, “As of now, I haven’t planned on my further studies. I’m concentrating on my what I am studying now, although it’s not that difficult to get through.”

Rajiv Rajan, a student of New Horizon College, who is looking forward to pursing his masters in the United States of America says, “I can’t wait to complete my course after which like most of the other engineers, I too will be working for a while. We need some corporate exposure before we enter a master’s course. It will give us a better footing.”
