Mr. Nirav Shah
I joined VESIT in the second year of engineering as I was a diploma student. Since I lived in Borivali, which is a long way from Chembur, I decided to shift into the hostel here, which was new and exciting because I was living away from home for the first time. My only goal was learning so I was really absorbed into learning a lot of stuff. Though it was quite academically oriented, luckily I used to score well. Later on, after third year I got more involved in ISTE That’s when ISTE was formed. A batch senior to us started ISTE and then we took over. Since there were many responsibilities, I happened to be the ISTE secretary and the treasurer. I was also very much involved in class activities as I was the C.R. and Placement coordinator. At the same time, I was also absorbed into learning and doing projects.
It was a pretty happening all around. VESIT is like that always. I liked Computer Architecture as a subject which was taught to us by Abhay Shirsagar Sir. I liked the concept and technicality of it, so, loved to learn it and Shirsagar Sir made it so easy for us. We really admired him. As for my favourite teacher, Sharmila Sengupta Ma’am was our class teacher in D16 Final year. And the best communicator and teacher I have known is Nagananda Sir. He has taught what is most important, that is, interpersonal skills. I have been talking to people not just in the U.S, but also in countries like Germany and Australia who are learning engineering and found that they struggle with presentation skills. I feel like it was easy for us because of him. Hardik Sir came in as a young teacher so he was very close to us. There are a lot of teachers to name as my favourites.
