Over these last couple of weeks, I have read a lot of chapters from our class lecture materials. Some of the concepts and ideas that I read about let me know about entrepreneurship is the process by which individuals pursue opportunities without regard to resources they currently control. Entrepreneurship is the art of turning an idea into a business. Is so fresh on me. So the next question is “Am I entrepreneurial”?
Throughout my undergraduate program, I have participated in workshops at my university, which helped me acquire varied yet firm foundation in Mechanical Engineering. But it was not enough to quench my urge to learn more, so to broaden my spectrum of knowledge I attended many other seminars held at other colleges and universities like “Manufacturing of Robot” at IIT Chennai, “Hover Craft” at NIT
In parallel, as Computer Knowledge has become an essential requirement in almost all the fields, I also completed a Programming course in C,C++ and Data structures certified by NIIT, New Delhi. To acquire knowledge on the Control System used in buildings such as offices, industries and individual houses, I attended a program on ‘Building Management System' conducted by 'Johnson Controls' at my college. The program not only gave me theoretical knowledge, but also practical exposure, which led me to successfully execute my first mini project on ‘ATM Management' as a team My hunger for learning new things didn't end there. I attended a workshop on ‘Arduino'
This report is a short description of my 8 weeks internship carried out in contracting department at Qurum Business Group. The internship was carried out in a police complex project in Al Seeb, Muscat. Incorporated to the Civil Engineer study program, the professional internship’s main aim is to introduce the Bachelor students to what are the main skills of the Civil Engineer and how does he/she manage and solve the problems on the construction site. Civil engineering internship program bridges the gap between theory and practice and provide students with practical real engineering work. At the beginning of the internship I formulated several learning goals, which I wanted to achieve: • To apply theories learnt in classroom in industrial application; • To use my gained skills and knowledge; • To enhance my soft and hard skills; • To acquire knowledge of various stages of construction, project management and team-work; • To improve my communication and management skills; • To offer proposals for final year projects when such opportunity is made
There are different types of communication such as intrapersonal communication and interpersonal communication. These are some of the examples of different communication types that I have undergone throughout my university life. During my first year of an undergraduate program, I have to take a certain number of modules regarding management as it is what I plan to major in and gain experience of how to be communication oriented with the ability to demonstrate professionalism, empathy, awareness and concern for others not forgetting having good listening skills. However, as I go through the learning process, we are told to work in a team for group presentation. As I have never work in a group with Asian international students, it proved to be a challenge.
This enthusiasm on computer triggered my heart to work in the field related to computers. Unfortunately, I had to do my under grad in Electrical and Electronics Engineering. But it never reduced my passion towards computers. Electrical and Electronics has also fascinated me. During the projects I have done in my academics, the interest towards the computers compelled me to merge both fields by programming the code and run it through the microprocessors.
It made me think of the color schemes that would make it pleasant on the users’ eyes, keeping the school theme colors in mind. I used SQL to build the database. I also used C# to code the desktop application. Most of the C# that I used, was not however taught in school and we had to take out time to do our research on
The purpose of this reflection report is to show how the knowledge I attained from the Globalization and Business General Education (GE) course was both implemented and heeded my personal development, as well as my thoughts and views towards the course. I am currently studying an Associate of Arts, specifically in the Languages and Communications division. The possibility of learning and studying Business in college never occurred to me, that learning how to communicate in a workplace environment at one of my mandatory English classes was as far as I was going to get to touching this discipline of study. It was unexpected when I first sat in the lecture hall that Tuesday afternoon, in the midst of those first few weeks of the second semester, listening to an introduction of Globalization. I was only vaguely aware of what I was getting myself into taking this course, an advanced combination of Liberal Studies and Business.
CE2.2 Background Automatic card stamping machine was my major project in the partial fulfilment of the requirement for the award of the degree of Bachelor of Technology. This project was chosen by me as the major project in the final year of engineering along with my project partners. I saw that this project was suggested by a faculty from our department for opting as a major project, so this seized my attention and I discussed this topic with my friends to opt. Afterwards, when they also find it interesting, I went to the concerned lecturer Er.Sanjeev Kumar for discussing the same and to know more details about the work to be done in this project. I, along with few of my friends, discussed fundamental objective with him.
I had regularly contacted people of shipbuilding industry to have a closer knowledge of the problems they are facing and tried to reach a feasible solution. In this thesis I used the knowledge that I acquired from numerous courses in my undergraduate level and found interesting- namely, Mechanics of Structure; Ship Structure; Motion and Control; Heat Transfer; Theory of Machines; Shipbuilding Materials; Optimization. So brainstorming from different aspect and different view to solve those problems, it was really enjoyable for me. From then I get the fascination to become a researcher. Beside this thesis, in third year of my undergraduate level, I with two of my groupmates worked on a project to design a container vessel of 93 meter length.
