It is needless to say that IITs are the best institutes of India so is IIT Kanpur. I have realized this during my stay at IIT Kanpur it provides tremendous opportunity for ones professional and personal development. You can select any field business, science, economics, maths or engineering and swim in the ocean of IIT Kanpur.My research topic in M Tech was Supply chain contracts with inventory level dependent demand and random uncertainty. I was working with Dr Peeyush Mehta and Dr Kripa Shanker. The essence of the research and outcome is explained in a short abstract below.             we consider a supply chain coordination problem when demand faced by a retailer is influenced by the amount of inventory displayed on the retail shelf. We assume that shelf space inventory is used as one of the levers to stimulate demand. Our objective in this research is to design individually rational contracts that coordinate the supply chain when the retailer faces inventory-level-dependent demand. We consider a buyback contract where any leftover inventory at the retailer can be returned to the supplier at a pre-specified terms of the buyback contract. The existing buyback contracts in the supply chain coordination literature do not guarantee the satisfaction of individual rationality constraint. A continuum of buyback contracts coordinate the supply chain. The contracts may differ on the basis of division of profits resulting in contracts that may not be individually rational. This motivates us to use the Shapley value from the cooperative game theory which ensures fairness and individual rationality in the buyback contract. We also provide managerial insights into the design of the contracts and analyze the impact of shelf space inventory on the contract parameters.

Its is the best Engineering College in state of Chhattisgarh.  When I studying there it was converted into NIT since then infrastructure and facilities have greatly improved.  Job placement as excellent as in any other NIT.  With respect to research I will not count it among premier institutes. In future the research quality may take surge and can be major research centre of central India.

HZL is an organization which was privatized when we were in school. It is growing rapidly. While working with HZL I learnt how engineering is applied in process industry. I got practical experience of using thermocouple, RTD, Pressure meter, Flow meter etc.  One can see how a closed loop control system works and how advantageous it is.For Instrumentation and automation engineering process indusry provides immense opportunity. For chemical and Metallurgy needless to say that it isone of best company.

Jun, 2010 - Nov 2012 | Bangalore
HSBC Electronic Data Processing Pvt Limited (India) mostly known as HSBC Analytics  in job market is one of the leading company in India providing analytic services. It is captive unit of international bank HSBC. I joined HSBC after my M Tech and it was an excellent learning experience.  I learnt new techniques of predictive modelling and customer analytic in addition to a new programming language called SAS. 
I was in the company of bright minds who always motivated me to excel in personal and professional goals.  As I was working for Indian market so I was able to related whatever I was doing while sitting in AC office in front of a Dell system.
I can bullet following things from HSBC experience
1. Learnt how to leverage statistical and analytical knowledge for business growth.
2. New advance predictive analytics techniques
3. Making a good PPTs for non technical people.

I left HSBC to pursue my unachieved goals of life.

Message to students
If you are preparing for any examination then you should also know  everything about the pattern of the examination that helps to plan your study. Be sincere and regular on your studies and try to understand the basic concepts. Then solve as many numerical problems you can solve as it is real test of your understanding of basic concept. Thats its. 


IIT Kanpur
Industrial & Management Engineering, Industrial & Management Engineering
Exam: GATE | Paper: Electronics and Communication Engineering (EC)
Exam Year: 2007 | Cutoff: 550 | Interview Date: 23 May 2008
Mode of Admission: Written, Interview
Experience
Written Test Experience: 
As the M Tech IME is interdisciplinary program written test is not specific to any Engineering trade. It is similar to an aptitude test which consists of  questions to judge reasoning, logical, numerical and verbal  ability of a candidate. It will include some reading comprehension also. I recall that I was able to solve most of the question except some tricky questions which were very few.

Interview Experience:
My interview was smooth. There were three faculties in my panel. They asked me some simple question related to my background. As far as I know in interviews simple questions are asked which may or may not be related to your Engineering background.

Interviewer Ques: 
    1.   What are the difference between LAN, WAN and MAN?  
    2.   Explain truth table of Digital Gates ?
    3.   Why do you want to M Tech? Why not MBA?
    4.   Have applied for M Tech else where also?
Final Result:
           I was selected and I joined the program.

Experience
Interview Experience: 
I was excited to appear for the interview as this was my face to face confrontation with a faculty form any IIT. I was well prepared for my interview  and was confident though I was not in touch with subject for long time.  When I entered the room I found a young faculty member was sitting inside me to interview.  He asked me about my favourite subjects and told me to be comfortable.  When asked me 5-6 questions pertaining to basic topics of signal and system, Communication and Digital Electronics.  

Later, I realized that I had answered one questions incorrectly when I discussed with friends.  He initially asked to draw graphs of some signal. He was    interested in graphical representation of different signals. I do not remember all but few.
Interviewer Ques: 
1. Explain graphical method of convolution?
2. Graphically represent signals (Unit step, Ramp, rectangular)

Exam: GATE | Paper: Electronics and Communication Engineering (EC)
Exam Year: 2007
Mode of Admission: Interview
Experience
Interview Experience:
As specialization suggests I had expected questions from topics like micro processor  or computer networking but opposed to it panel member (they were 2 ) asked questions related to signal and system.  Questions were largely from Fourier transforms and its variants. 
 I also realized that they will ask the same questions until you answer it confidently. When I was stuck they provided me enough clues to reach to answer.

Interviewer Ques: 
1. Draw the ramp signal? Then represent differentiated outcome graphically.
2. Explain time shifting properties of Fourier transform?
