Testimonies by our Alumni

My journey at Karunya for the past four years has been amazing and the college, faculty and administration have supported me and my endeavors throughout. Being from the department of agriculture, I had a lot of practical sessions along with theoretical classes that helped me for better understanding and easy learning. In these four years, the courses such as farm machinery, irrigation engineering, diary and food engineering, soil and water conservation were some of my strengths as these subjects are applied in our day-to-day life. Along with academic classes, there were also placement training sessions that focused on improving our soft skills, communication skills, interpersonal skills, and a lot more. I have taken part in Hackathons as well as various inter-departmental competitions and those experiences and achievements helped me stand out among others. Overall, Karunya has not only helped me grow career-wise, but has also made me gain values and memories that I will cherish for life.

I did B.Sc (Hons.) Agriculture in Karunya Institute of Technology and Sciences that gave me everything that I had planned. Karunya gave me opportunity to harness the Leadership potential within me. It was a very good experience to improve myself. Teachers are so kind to me and my friends. Studying in this institute has been a great time. With its immense beauty, it also has India’s best teaching faculty and labs which has helped me gain knowledge in agricultural field. The Institution always helps me in every possible ways to achieve my dream. Here the potential is harnessed, skills are developed, and dreams are realized. “This was the LORD’s doing; It is marvelous in our eyes” (Psalms 118: 23). It indeed gives me great joy in sharing the marvelous experiences I had in Karunya which has sculptured me to what I am today. I thank God for He chose me to be “One in a million” which I realized the very first day I joined Karuya. It was all because of the grace of God and motivation of my department staffs. Karunya is a place which not only raises a skilled professional but also a purposeful person and a humanitarian. My period of stay in Karunya was the time I was able to know the purpose of my life. Hostel Prayers cells and Department fellowship helped me to grow in God and instilled a zeal to work and shine for Him in every walks of my life. I would like to encourage my juniors to grab the opportunities which lie ahead and give their best. Words for my juniors, “You are in the hands of a perfect potter who is molding you into a prefect, useful vessel”.
Summer training at BEN GURION UNIVERSITY OF THE NEGEV, ISRAEL.I was fortunate to explore Israel’s largest desert Negev through a one month summer course program on “Sustainable Agricultural Solutions”. It was mainly concentrated on three tracks namely soil and irrigation, plants under abiotic stress, and aquaculture. During this period, I had the opportunity to work with Israel’s top scientists both in the field and in the laboratory. This program also included various cultural events where I got to socialize with students from various countries. We were also taken on weekly tours to learn about Israeli culture and their history. I also had an unique opportunity to do a mini project with other exchange students from other countries on “Methods of algal culture analysis for value added products”. On the whole, it was a fantastic journey and a memorable experience.

Summer training at BEN GURION UNIVERSITY OF THE NEGEV, ISRAELI had a chance to attend the summer training at Ben Gurion University, Israel on Sustainable Agricultural Solutions. It was a great opportunity to meet students from different countries with varied cultures and traditions. I learnt a lot about new technologies and water-conserving methods adopted in Israel. I was able to create new relationships and maintain contact with them. We had tours to the Dead Sea, Arava, Mizpe Ramon, and many more places. We also had a chance to visit Jerusalem, the holy land. I learnt about their unique and novel ideas for recycling water and the usage of drones in farming activities. I learned about dry land crops like dragon fruit, Pitaya, olive, jojoba, etc. Altogether it was a tremendous and wonderful experience for me which I will cherish for a lifetime.
