IIT‐IIM Alumni Association in Kuwait kicked off its new initiative  – “Engineering  Your  Future”,  an awareness program aimed at exposing the young students to various career options in the fields of engineering and technology, thereby helping them make an informed career decision.

An inaugural session was conducted on Sunday 26 April at the Indian Central School, Jleeb Al‐ Shyoukh,  and was attended by students of 9th, 10th  and 11th standards  from the school.

The event started with a brief introduction by Ashish Verma, an IIT Bombay alumnus and General Secretary of the Association, who explained the program’s objectives. Sharing his own journey as an engineer who transitioned  into a management  role, Siddartha  Prasad, an IIM Ahmedabad  alumnus,  delivered  an eloquent  presentation  highlighting  the  various  career  options  and  the  associated  rewards  that  a career in engineering entails, and the specific areas that a student should focus on.

Ashish Jain, an IIT Madras alumnus and the initiative’s chief organizer, responded to various queries from the students and shared anecdotes from his own personal experience.

The  presentation,  which  the  young  audience  appreciated  a  lot  and  hopes  to  benefit  from,  was designed based on the feedback from the association’s members who themselves have had rewarding careers in the fields of engineering and technology.

Dr. Shantha Maria James, ICS principal, provided her full support to the initiative and thanked the association members for their efforts. The initiative has been possible due to the untiring behind‐the‐scene  efforts of Ramanjit Anand (IIT Bombay, IIM Bangalore), Abhinav Daharwal (IIM Bangalore) and Imran Shaik (IIM Calcutta). The association plans to conduct similar sessions in other Indian schools in near future.

Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) and Indian Institute of Management  (IIM) are globally renowned premier   Indian   institutions   of  higher   education   in  the  fields  of  Engineering   Technology   and Management,  respectively.  The  Association  can  be  reached  at  contact@iitiimkuwait.com or  the official website www.iitiimkuwait.com.
