M.Tech Graduate

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.
