Mr. Kamal Shrestha (cs21mtech16001), Mtech, SII (Edcil) Fellowship

Hello, This is Kamal from Nepal, M.Tech student at IITH. IIT Hyderabad has been one of the most memorable moments in my academic career. From arriving here late on a summer night to spending more than a year, I can proudly say that this place oozes ambition, support, happiness, and comfort. This place has been the perfect stepping stone to propel my academic and professional career to peaks I never imagined. For someone traveling outside the country for the first time, I have met many wonderful people, made amazing friends, always smiling, and always willing to help. IITH, for me, has been an experience of a lifetime, which I will always cherish.
Anyone looking into joining this institution doesn't need to think twice or look for something else because you won't find anything better.
