Prajoth D’Sa alumnus of MITK
Sharing his experience, Prajoth D’Sa says, “Having seen my elder sister and brother reading log-sized engineering books, I had made up my mind and convinced myself that engineering would never be my cup of tea. But things changed and after my PU, I got admitted to MITK for Computer Science Engineering. The primary thought that had me opt for MITK was that it was the nearest college from my place at Santhekatte, Udupi. The college was well established by then and was taking steps towards further development. The environment there and faculty made us feel really good and the bonding was beautiful. New things were introduced and I can say that the college was successful in producing skilled engineers for the industry. It’s been 4 years now since I graduated and I feel extremely proud and nostalgic when I get to learn the latest happenings in the college. I wish MITK many more glorious years of imparting technical education to students in our locality and all around. They say engineers are awesome, and I thank MITK for making me one! I am ever grateful!”
