“When I reflect on my four years in the CMRIT undergraduate program, I conclude that the experience not only made me a better engineer but also prepared me in unpredictable ways for my career. Through classes with incredibly supportive classmates and professors who were nothing short of champions, I was challenged to discover talents I didn’t know I had.
The faculty allowed me to express myself freely both on a personal and intellectual level—they truly supported me with any interest I had or any situation I was facing.
The faculty and administrative members of CMRIT were always supportive, kind and, more importantly, treat students as colleagues. I have become more confident due to such a nurturing and friendly environment. Every single student’s intellectual potential can be fully explored owing to the rigorous training and constant mentorship one gets from CMRIT.
My fellow students were my best friends, best colleagues, and best critics; and they continue to be so to this day.
Having been shaped in part by the collegial and creative, yet rigorous, environment at CMRIT, I found myself able to communicate, innovate, and collaborate in ways that enabled me to build a successful engineering career at ARM Inc. Bangalore, and eventually to find a rewarding research career in NVIDIA research lab, California.
n my current role as Ph.D. Candidate, School of Computing, University of Utah, I work with the faculty, with the students, and with the broader community, I draw every day on the dispositions I developed during my time at CMRIT. It was a wonderful time in my life, and the best educational experience I’ve had. A lot of people think back to undergrad school and shudder.; In my case, I think back to four years of uninterrupted good times.
