The journey of my B.Tech life in Vel Tech has been very amazing. I feel very fortunate to have studied here. All the financial supports that Vel Tech has provided me was very necessary and essential in my life. I acknowledge the Vel Tech Management for MGNMS for all four years and the scholarship for internship and bonvoyage.

I sincerely thank all my teachers here who have guided me and brought me to this level to go for abroad and study in Tamkang University Taiwan.

I would also thank my department for providing the best of opportunities available. I will be dedicated and extend my support to my juniors here in whichever way possible. Lastly, I wish this practice of helping and encouraging students financially should remain priority for the Vel Tech management.
