My all india rank in JEE Exam was 1600, I wanted to pursue a unique course after my 12th standard and so opted for this course. My Grandfather insisted me to pursue this course since this was a unique opportunity to involve in the design of ships. I had the option to choose civil engineering but in INDIA only our college and IITR kharagpur had this course so I took this course. I opted IIT MADRAS through my rank and I got this college.
For a 3 credit course we had 50 lectures in one semester, Basically we had 3 classes in a week for a 3 credit course. All my professors at college were Well educated ( phd ) and top class teachers who were always welcoming during my college days. They were more into research and helped us to have a idea through our btech projects in our college days.
