Muhammed Fasil T.P., 2013-15, M.Tech Power Systems Engineering, Assistant Researcher, Petroleum Institute, Abu Dhabi
I made one of the best decisions that I have ever made – “I decided to apply to B.S. Abdur Rahman University (BSAU), Chennai/India for Post-graduation (PG) in Electrical Engineering (EE).” To me BSAU is the bridge, no nono… I would better say the pillar to my success. Being a student at BSAU has been a great experience for me. I have had the opportunity to learn from professors who are leaders in the field of power system, as well as from young professors who are on par excellence. My professors were not only teachers but also mentors who were willing to help students anytime and in any situation. They taught me the proper way of learning and how to think critically. The facilities at the department is impeccable: one among those is 24 * 7 working PG simulation lab which includes latest high-level power system software packages, which is completely maintained by the PG students! Now, I am an Assistant Researcher at The Petroleum Institute, Abu Dhabiwhere I have done my PG M.Tech Project, and it is all because of the support that I have received from faculty of EEE department. Dear Professors, I thank you for grooming me well. I thank you for providing a vast educational program which added value and prestige to my profile.

Dr.Arunachalam Sundaram, 2002-2004, Assistant Professor, Jubail Industrial College, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
