Karunya gave me an inspiration to go for higher studies. After completing my M.Tech degree (VLSI Design) from Karunya Institute of Technology and Sciences, currently I am doing my doctoral studies in IIT Palakkad. Being a part of the research group in Karunya I have authored and co-authored many international Journal and conference publications. The research and learning experience gained from Karunya leads me in this position. I am proud to be a Karunya Alumnae.
I did my M.Tech degree (VLSI Design) from Karunya Institute of Technology and Science . Also, I got privilege to do my Master degree project for 6 months in reputed University in Germany through IAESTE. Today, I am pursuing my doctoral research in Germany. I got wonderful staff members who profusely planted in me the analyzing capacity and helped me in understanding the tough concepts and algorithm's; created a deep interest towards my subjects. I am proud to be a Karunya Alumnae.
