My arrival at FISAT was full of excitement. I was able to acquire in-depth knowledge on subjects given in the lectures and practicals. I was consistently inspired by the head of department and entire teachers in the department. We got plenty of opportunities to develop our all round personalities not only through excellent academic atmosphere but also through various co-curricular, cultural and sports activities. Thanks to all my teachers for the encouragement and constant support.

FISAT is not a college, it is a brand. Apart from lecture rooms, labs or any international level infrastructure we could ask for, our mentors and FISAT’s vision to enable its students with industry level capabilities through carrier oriented special programs, projects & campus drives  made the difference. I got a lot of love and support from my teachers & colleagues and it made my 3 years memorable for me. I owe sincere gratitude to my College & especially MCA faculties for enabling each one of us to believe that we are special and preparing us to embrace the ever evolving Global Challenges. Graduation was just a certificate but the journey that made us capable of going that one extra mile can’t be summarized in a few words.
