Branch Counselor

"The IEEE Student Branch of GECBH has proved, over the years, their capabilities and strengths. As each year passes, the SB catches the attention of students, by showcasing the spirit and determination of every volunteer, and every member who contributes to the development of the SB. As time progresses, the value of this SB has exponentially increased, creating a stunning image, amongst others in the IEEE Kerala Section. It has always and continues to produce quality workshops, talks and industrial visits, staying true to mottos of the technical organization. It’s a pleasure to see the members of the SB extending support to those who require technical assistance. I am proud to be the counselor of this student branch."

"IEEE, as you know, is the world’s largest technical professional organisation. But it wasn’t just that for me. IEEE was like my family during college days & has played a major role in shaping up my personality. I can surely say that my life wouldn’t have been the same, if not for this beautiful family that I got at GEC Barton Hill. The beauty of IEEE is the spirit of volunteering shown by its members. The platform that IEEE provides is the same for both you and me. But how much you utilize its potential for your professional growth is what that determines whether your $27 was worth or not. As evident from my own case, IEEE is an organisation that values one’s dedication & contributions to the development of the organisation. From starting the journey as a member of the SB to serve as its Chairman, I feel privileged to have played a small part in its legacy. I would like to thank my seniors at IEEE – Ajay Wilson, Rohini Madhav, Ashwin P, Rafi SM & others for the inspirational role they played in the journey of fellow members of my batch. It is they who made us join the organisation in the first place. Personally, I would like to express my gratitude to Birenjith sir, Josna ma’am & Anu Mohamed Sir – one of the best faculty combo who have been with the ExCom throughout these years. All this was possible due to the sheer dedication & commitment of the IEEE Executive Committee, I’m just speaking on their behalf. It’s the wish of all the final year IEEE members that this vibrance must continue & our SB attain greater heights in the future. Au revoir & prosperity to my IEEE Fam!"
