"Incredible experience in life"

I wrote various entrance exams including JEE, VITEEE, BITSAT and MUOET, the entrance exam for Manipal Institute of Technology. I've heard many tales about the goodness of the college and ended up here. There wasn't any interview process, the admission was decided based on all India rank of MUOET. Post that there was verification and submission of documents and payment of fees to follow. I've researched a lot about this branch and got to know that this field is of major importance in almost every field and has got great opportunities abroad too.
