Hello people,

It feels great to be back on blog and write a blog post again. This time it is about ‘Master Studies’. Oh yes, I am doing Masters of Science in Software Engineering from Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS), Pilani. 🙂

This is a work integrated program for Persistent Employees and those who clear the Entrance exam for BITS, gets the admission for MS.

The specialty about this program is that you can complete your Masters right with your work. The classes are held are on weekends at Persistent Campus only and exams are also conducted from here.

The good thing is that the degree is a Full Time degree. 🙂

When I completed my engineering, I was having a good score for my GRE exam and could have gone for higher studies to US universities but due to some situations and problems, I couldn’t go. But there you go, I found this option for MS in BITS Pilani and cleared entrance by god’s grace.

Almost 45 students of Persistent from India are attending this program and the courses are awesome. Only 8 people are from Nagpur which are shown in the above collage pic. The course duration is two years.

So, I will keep on updating the events and activities for Masters on blog. So stay tuned 🙂

@MsWizKid signing off!

Enjoy 🙂

Persistent Systems Project Competition 2010-2011 ( 2nd Prize )

Hi Guys,

How are you all ? Hope you are having a wonderful time. 🙂

Before starting with the actual post, I am giving 2 links of my previous posts which are linked with this one. Have a look at them 🙂

Project at Persistent

Final Year Project Decided

After referring to the above mentioned blog posts , you are now familiar with what Project Competition I am talking about. 🙂 Great.

Yesterday, all the selected teams from different colleges presented their projects at Persistent Systems. Each team looked well prepared. So were we 😛 🙂

Snacks done. Coffee done. Preparations done before the actual execution. 🙂

After some time judges arrived, asked some difficult questions. We answered some of the questions right, some of the questions were answered which even we were not knowing at that time ( Just Guessed ) 😛 But in all, it was very good project execution and judges were pleased with the project.

Audience at the Persistent even asked some great questions and provided with the useful suggestions for the project. Now, we know which functionalities we need to add to the actual project to make it even better. 🙂

Everybody pleased with the UX Designing and Reporting module of the Project. 🙂

Technology details of the Project:

  • Front End: Silverlight 4 , ASP.NET
  • Back End: Microsoft SQL Server
  • Tools Used : Visual Studio 2010 and Expression Blends 4

The Results were announced after a very long time and we were declared as 1st Runner’s up and being awarded Silver Medal for the same. 🙂 There is some bad feeling that we couldn’t be the winners but really enjoyed developing the project and the industrial exposure in Persistent. 🙂

Here are pics of mine presenting the medal and the certificate. 😀
