Russian Government Scholarship for engineering student at UPES
He is one of the four selected students from UPES to pursue semester exchange program at National Research Tomsk Polytechnic University, Russia
Amanat Ali, final year student of B.Tech Mechanical Engineering, class of 2016-2020, is set to pursue his Masters in Nanotechnology from National University of Science and Technology, MISIS (Moscow Institute of Steel and Alloys). His Masters program will be fully funded by Russian Government Scholarship. He is, in fact, one of the four students selected from UPES to pursue semester exchange program at National Research Tomsk Polytechnic University, Russia.
Amanat was determined to pursue his Masters from abroad. “In my very first year of graduation,” he says, “I was determined to pursue my Masters in Nanotechnology. UPES helped me to connect with the faculty and alumni and guided me with the admission procedures and provided me with required recommendations.”
Talking about his inspiration, Amanat explains that he had an inclination towards research on engineering material at nano-scale and that was the main reason why he took Mechanical Engineering with specialization in material science and nanotechnology at UPES. “I always wondered,” he adds, “how engineering materials change their own properties with size and how it felt to break the sound barrier. These questions led me to pursue engineering in the domain.”
His journey at UPES wasn’t all a bed of roses. In his very first year of study, he flunked in three subjects. Says Amanat, “Till the 3rd semester, I was struggling hard to obtain a decent CGPA. From my third year, I started working hard on my SGPA and I was finally able to improve my CGPA to 7.92 overall, which opened up new opportunities for me. My journey at UPES was an enriching experience filled with ups and downs. I worked for National Service Scheme (NSS)-UPES from 2018 as a general secretary., NSS allow me to improve my interpersonal skills and build a strong team leadership capability.”
After getting an experience from IISc Bangalore during his summer research internship, he learnt how to write a research paper. He says, “I learnt a lot about research through the experience I had with senior scientists and professors during my internship. During the semester exchange program at National Research Tomsk Polytechnic University, Russia, I learnt various technical and non-technical skills. This international experience was the turning point of my career. These experiences help me to get this prestigious Russian Government Scholarship for my Master’s program.”
He expresses his gratitude to UPES for the experience he had on campus. “UPES boosted my spirits and made me what I am today,” he says. I would like to dedicate this accomplishment to my family and UPES’ Department of Mechanical Engineering. Lastly, I would like to express my sincere gratitude towards Dr. Ajay Kumar, Head, Department of Mechanical Engineering; Dr. Ashish Karn, Dr. Shailey Singhal, Dr. Sravendra Rana, Dr. Amit Kumar Chawla, Amar Shukla sir for providing me with their guidance and support at every step of the way.”
Amanat further said, “Nothing worthwhile comes easily. Continuous hard work is the only way to accomplish results. Coming from a lower middle class family, I faced many challenges in my life but I am thankful to UPES faculty. I want to tell my juniors that making good connection with your teachers and seniors, dedication to achieve your goal and grabbing every opportunity that comes your way will help you succeed in life.”
Thank you UPES for everything
@ Amant Ali sir i want to talk to you can I get your contact number because I have dream that I could also do my master in nanotechnology from abroad and I I was taken admission in UPSC .
Great going Ajanta proud of your stellar acheivements cnt’s apart look into the possibilities of bnt’s ie boron nanotubes
