Testimonies by our Alumni
Dr. Shaik Gouse Peera, M. Sc. Chemistry (2008-2010)
“I dread to think where I would be today if God had not saved me”
“One in a million we are his choice” is the most favorite lines I like in the University anthem of Karunya. I strongly believe those people chosen by God can only study in Karunya University. Karunya is the place where I learned the value of prayer, life, and of course, a lot of chemistry. The value-added teaching with highly qualified faculties, best laboratory facilities, excellent academic syllabus, fantastic learning atmosphere are the highlights of the department.
The best thing about the department is exposing students to the research environment even at the master levels, where many other institutions ignore. The research exposure, certainly boost the confidence of students for facing competitive examinations, job interviews for higher studies such as Ph.D. This research motivation helped me to join Central Electrochemical Research Institute (CECRI), a premium electrochemistry research institution in India, right after graduating master course from Karunya University. From there, my career started building up. After graduating Ph.D from CECRI, I moved to Chonbuk National university, Republic of Korea, for my post-doctoral studies. Right now, I am working as a full-time faculty in Keimyung University, Department of Environmental science and Engineering, Republic of Korea, actively pursuing the electrochemistry research and teaching.
I would confidently say that the amazing teaching ability from well qualified faculty members, research support offered by the department and confidence to face the social life, which I built up during my studies at Karunya, are the steppingstones to my carrier.
I thank all the teachers at Karunya for their valuable teaching, love and affection
Dr.Abhinav Joseph - M.Sc. Chemistry (Batch 2008-2010)
Assistant Professor, School of Chemical Engineering and Physical Sciences, Lovely Professional University, Punjab
As a student in the M.Sc. Chemistry program at Karunya University, I gained both the skills and confidence which prepared me for my chosen career. The course work is extensive and covers a wide range of topics, allowing one to gain a broad understanding of the discipline.The two years I spent at Karunya University were full of experiences and learning opportunities that allowed me to grow not only academically but also spiritually. Being at Karunya, God moulded my both external and inner being and nurtured my hidden potentials. I was able to attend and participate in several campus fellowships and events which helped me in my spiritual growth. During my final year, IAESTE India KU provided me a valuable opportunity to undertake internship at Centro de Química e Bioquímica, University of Lisbon, Portugal, where I also obtained my Ph.D. Currently I am working as an assistant professor at School of Chemical Engineering and Physical Sciences, Lovely Professional University. I would like to express my profound gratitude to Professors, mentors and counsellors at Karunya University for their excellent guidance, motivation and unwavering efforts.
