The right decision


For my higher education I was looking for a place that would expose me to a mix
of great quality education, culture & social policies and that is when I came across
Canada. All these factors were reaffirmed when I started my Engineering studies
in a beautiful and lush green campus at Carleton University located in the "silicon
Valley" of the east coast. My exposure to the Canadian environment allows me
today to professionally serve my diverse customer base in India and my education
in Canada allows me to stay on top of my work.

Hands-on approach
I received so much guidance from the moment I enrolled to the time I arrived in Canada to my graduation.

especially appreciated that the classes were based on a


hands-on approach where you can actually experience
the theory and relate to what the employer or the market
might expect of you.
There was a great upbeat atmosphere that helped me
achieve my full potential.

An unforgettable experience
Spending more than five years at York University was completely unforgettable.
During the first year, I faced many challenges getting to know a different culture,
Iifestyle, and environment. Thanks to the supportive and united spirit of University
friends and staff, I became a confident student and handled all uncertainties
very smoothly.
I was also very impressed with the university infrastructures, with the cutting edge
technology, modern equipment, and by the easy and wide access to valuable printed
and electronic resources.

Centered on the student and set on theoretical knowtredge and practical expertise, the
education system in Canada constitutes an excellent environment that allows the student,

A Canadian scholarship

A land of possibilities

My Emerging Leaders in ihe Americas (ELAP) scholarship opened the door for me to study in a world-class
academic environment.

My "lnternational Studies" at the Universit de Montral


gave me a wide knowledge of the relations between
countries and cultures from a Canadian perspeciive.
I chose from a wide offering in order to learn more about
the political, economic and social systems in Canada and
in North America. Travelling from Nova Scotia in the East
to Qubec and to the Rocky Mountains in the Western
provinces, I discovered the amazing Canadian landscape.
For the first time in my life, I went winter camping,
dog-sledding and snowshoeing.

It was a unique opportunity that significantly enriched


my own learning experience and helped me to develop
policies on how to bridge the gap between the lab,
field, and society.

A career springboard
remember fondly the enduring richness of my undergraduate life, the inclusive, open
culture of the university, and the vast Canadian wilderness.

Studying and living at the University of Alberta has instilled in me a lifelong interest in
learning, bridging cultures and serving the community. This has helped me in leading NTU,
Singapore's science and technology university, to greater heights.
