This motivated me to choose Bachelor of Technology program in Chemical Engineering at

National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirappalli (NIT Trichy, Tamil Nadu, India) - one of

the premier research and engineering institutes in India. I was exposed to array of subjects in

Chemical Engineering in my undergraduate curriculum. I am especially interested in

Momentum Transfer, Chemical Reaction Engineering and Transfer Operations. I have

performed well in six semesters and I consistently rank in top ten percent of the class with a

CGPA of 9.02 out of 10 Point scale.

In my second year of Engineering, I participated in an industrial problem solving event titled
