Batch of 2007
I still remember the first day I came to DA-IICT with my father and now I compared it to what happened 2 months ago when I came to USA and went to drop off my younger brother without our parents in a foreign land. This marked change in my confidence can easily and totally be attributed to my life at DA-IICT. Those 4 years will always remain the golden days of my life. The friends I made at DA-IICT will always be my most trusted bunch in the world. I learned a lot in those 4 years.Coming for Masters to USA I have realised that in terms of vision, knowledge and implementation of the highest quality of education DA-IICT is as good as the best universities in the world. I can proudly say that I made the right decision by opting for DA-IICT and I hope to become a proud product shaped by some of the finest professors in the world.

Prateek is currently pursung PGPCM at Mudra Institute of Communications, Ahmedabad.
Graduation in a certain sense takes you through the journey of being a man from being just a boy! Colleges do it in a lot of different ways. education, environment, freedom, space for experimentation, friends, professors, games, festivals and above all of these, orientation. DA-IICT, I guess, is probably the only institution that can change worldviews within months of getting into it. It introduces you to a plethora of possibilities from which you can choose your own path to being a man! For starters, I guess being in a batch of 240 might make you a little overwhelmed. But, you have to realize that you can find friends for life within those sets of 240. You can create your own niche of friends, possibilities and even electives. The beauty of the campus lies within the fact that it allows for eccentricity, even embraces it, till the time you can carry it forward with decent academic records. You have professors that you will remember all your life and to top it all, you will end up having memories that would last forever. I think that's all you need for the metamorphosis.
Ranjit is currently working as Research Engineer at DA-IICT.
With its multidisciplinary and visionary approach to education, DA-IICT is a unique institute in India and in its formative years, a very exciting place to be.

Also, for each of us life on campus was a rich set of experiences and a whole lot of fun!

The final year project offered me a chance to work with my professor guide very closely which gave was a wonderful experience. Apart from the academics, the presence of a large number of students clubs like the film club, cricket club and press club helped me develop a sound perspective and opinion. Needless to mention that I had great fun in our Annual Festivals and the other regular cultural events.

Inspiration, Opportunities, Interactions, Exposure, Growth, Freedom, Possibilities - for me, this is our Alma Mater. The amazing campus - which was home for many of us for four good years - years that we'll always cherish, will probably remain my "happy place" for life. The assortment-of-sorts curriculum provided us with the much needed exposure to a range of disciplines; strong guidance and mentorship by the faculty provided a much needed support system; maverick programs like the Rural Internship and Design Project helped us gain perspective and inspired the creative bit in us. Life at DA-IICT was a rollercoaster ride - there were ups and downs, but at the end, we came out stronger AND it was great fun!

The iconic line from 42nd Street "You're going out there a youngster, but you've got to come back a star!" is an apposite compliment for
DA-IICT. A young, fledgeling mind is moulded and groomed by excellent faculty members. DA-IICT not only provides sound technical education but also exposes students to variety of subjects like economics, design, math, society at large and many more resulting in all round development of mind. Having spent two years in industry I can say that DA-IICT course curricullam ensures students are ready for industry upon their graduation and at the same time exposes students to the future trends and issues in computing industry thereby encouraging them to solve these problems. A large share of what I am today goes to excellent education and exposure that DA-IICT gave me. Course curricullum is intense and uptodate with lots of practical learning whichs propells us way ahead of students from other places. It prepared me for thriving in professional and non-professional life. Once out of DA-IICT, I found myself significantly ahead of counterparts from other colleges. Having said all this, I must mention here that a student must reciprocate and make full use of excellent faculty and facilities in order to reap benefits of studying at DA-IICT.

Kundan is currently working as Rotation Engineer at Intel Technology India, Bangalore.
Not many people would join an institute whose admission counseling is held in a tent on a dusty side road with half complete buildings in the background and no assurance of a 'degree'. But we did (read 240 students)! We all had our reasons. Over the next four years DA-IICT grew and we grew with it. We struggled, fought, created, destroyed and celebrated together for things that went wrong and things that we did manage to put in place. As I look back today, DA-IICT gave me not only the technical capabilities with its unique course structure (how many electronic engineers can claim to know Java?) delivered by best faculty but also shaped me as an individual through non-technical courses and the environment all around.

Shashwat is currently working as Associate Consultant at Infosys Technologies, Pune. He also did his MBA from VGSOM, IIT Kharagpur and graduated from IIT Kharagpur in 2007.
For every person his undergrad college holds a special place in his life. Its the time he goes from being a teenager to the hard ships of real life and in that time learns lessons that will be with them forever. But for us 240 students it was something special. We were the first batch of our college and started when the buildings were still to be completed. We have seen its fast rise from that point to to being among the leading engineering institutes in India. There was no one senior to guide us. It was just 240 students away from home living together bonding like a family.
DA-IICT provided us a platform, a springboard to realize the dream of every high school kid and more. It provided an excellent curriculum with a faculty made up of the top and the best. What the DA-IICT education provided me was how to think and not just to cram up the books. It worked for an overall development through science, humanities, economics, sports, art, culture, management and so on. I learnt the basics of life and made up the best friends in there. It gave me a zest to aim higher, to try and achieve something more than most others, to think differently.
Where I am today is all because of DA-IICT.
