RMK isn't your regular Engineering College. The college preaches discipline over everything else which albeit annoying at first, helps foster a sense of responsibility and professionalism among the students in the long run.
The college provided me the best when it came to infrastructure and resources.For me personally, someone with the professional qualification for a faculty doesn't make the cut. A faculty has to be understanding, and mainly approachable on top of being knowledgeable. I'm glad that I had such a wonderful team of teachers in my Department of Computer Science and Engineering.
Out of the regular coursework, the department fosters interest to learn/explore new fronts by conducting intra-department paper-presentation/ mini-project competitions which was a great initiative. Events like programming contests/ open-source software contribution/ software design and development helped us equip ourselves with the skills needed to survive/excel in the Industry.
My final year project sparked my interest in AI and more specifically Machine Learning. My Department was very supportive, understanding and patient throughout the course of my project. Our team also went on to bag the Best Project Award in the year 2013 for our project titled Predicting Cardiac Severity with RBF Neural Networks. Thanks to a good start, I realized my appetite for AI + ML and went on to specialize in ML for my Masters Degree.
I started off my career at Zoho Corporation, Chennai through our college placement with a good package @ 6.5L per annum and it was possible because the department was supportive of my interest in sport programming. They motivated me to prepare for State Level and National Level Algorithmic / Programming Contests, which helped me bag trophies + ace the interview. I went on to work here for almost two years before I left to pursue higher education from Arizona State University, United States.
I credit RMK for providing me with a wonderful experience building my fundamental computer science education.
