Postgraduate study should be utilised as a gateway towards your specific dream career. Hard work is a key to success.
I always wanted to be an electronic engineer. I undertook a Bachelor of Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering at Mumbai University, India. My undergrad program showed a big picture of electronic design and fabrication technologies, which triggered my interest in learning more.
Engineering at RMIT has always been very good. I decided to study at RMIT because I was especially impressed with the cleanroom lab facilities and the related subjects that were offered.
My studies are concentrated to electronic designs and fabrication. At the moment I am working on MEMS micro-systems and meta-material fabrication.
I undertook a summer research scholarship for three months with a collaboration between NICTA and RMIT. I also received a one month winter research scholarship by RMIT. These scholarships gave me actual research experience including the skills and patients required. This helped me decide that I can do a research and that it is something that I greatly enjoy.
I am currently doing a research with Functional Materials and Microsystem (FMM) Research group at RMIT under Dr. Sharath Sriram and Dr. Madhu Bhaskaran.
My plan is to continue with research as a PhD student, and I hope to continue my career as a research fellow at a university.
