National Institute of Technology, Allahabad
Bachelor of Technology, Computer Science and Engineering
The NIT Allahabad (aka MNNIT: Motilal Nehru National Institute of Technology) is the foundation on which my whole career has been built. Specialising in Computer Science and Engineering here transformed me from a complete noob in technology to somebody ready to take up software engineering as a career. This foundation is still helpful even though I have transitioned to the product side of things now.
Joined the institute by scoring 19th rank among over 96,000 entrance examination candidates and Graduated top 10% of class
My time at MNNIT was not just all about academics, but also about a lot of extra-curricular activities and leadership. I was one of the core coordinators of our National Level Tech-Fest Avishkar and Quiz-fest Gnosiomania. I also represented the institute in inter-collegiate competitions winning multiple prizes in programming contests, quizzing, and Dumb Charades at IIT Kanpur, IIT-BHU Varanasi and NIT Allahabad.
