I have been associated with MA advantage since the past 3 years and I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of this great community at IITK. I’ve found tremendous value in being a member, specifically being able to organize various events, participate in international events and connect me to material science community at large.
Being a part of MA was my first time being a part of any team which groomed me to later lead the same team says it all. Looking back, I always think not being a part of MA@IIT Kanpur would just have made me earn my PhD degree which only demonstrates my independent working ethics and critical thinking capabilities but not a mentor.
I have been associated with MA since 2016. MA@IITK has given me an excellent networking opportunity among the materials science community leaders across the globe. I have had the opportunity to direct a documentrary on ceramics “oneness with the infinite” and present my work at international conferences and travel with grants provided by MA. MA gave me an unparallel opportunity to interact with professors and students from various US universities, which later converted to my PhD offer letter at four different US Universities. Basically, I owe my US PhD position to MA@IITK!.
