Mr Ruturaj Radhakrishna Trivedi ,Alumni Mechanical Batch 2013-14
Starting the first year of engineering with computer science is my earliest memory of Orchid College of Engineering. Switching to mechanical engineering in the middle of the third semester was challenging yet fascinating. The professors and staff of the mechanical department were always welcoming. Strict schedules, discipline and the urge to excel were the values of the department and the institute. Though the opportunities for placement were limited back then the department motivated the students to gain technical excellence by preparing for the GATE exam. Innovative efforts like the International Rotary Youth Exchange Program and Study Abroad Cell differentiated the department and the college from the crowd. All this helped me develop as an engineering professional and motivated me to look for opportunities to specialize and work in India and abroad.
