I am an Aligarh Muslim University alumnus, pursued my B.Tech from the School of Civil Engineering, KIIT University where I was the University 2nd topper. I was selected for the prestigious Research Fellowship Programme- 2013 (National Institute of Technology, Silchar) and shortlisted for Shortlisted for Research fellowship programme-2013 (Indian Institute Of Technology, Bombay). I am a student member of ACI(American Concrete Institute) and ASCE (American Society of Civil Engineers). I have previously published 6 papers on various topics including two papers in the prestigious “International Journal of Civil Engineering Research” and one in International Journal of Scientific & Engineering Research. I was interested in buildings so much that as an elective I took Building Services Planning as my elective subject. I took two projects in B.Tech One is “Structural design component of high rise building” and another is “Utilization Of Renewable Energy In Zero Energy Buildings”. Besides this, during my College days, I was selected as the Student Coordinator of KIIT University Training & Placement cell for the year 2013-2014. Beside this, I have an active member of NSS and Enactus KIIT University. I too have Volunteered in Indian Science Congress (99th) and for blood collection (1524 units) organized by Ama Odisha. I am having 2 years of professional working experience in High Rise Building Construction Industry as Assistant Engineer (Civil). My project includes a Cluster of 19 S+12 towers spread over 12.5 acres including clubhouse, STP and an Underground water tank. There My job responsibility was Civil construction work including material and manpower planning, Inspection and close monitoring of all construction activities (Structure & Finishing). I was Engineer In-charge of 96 flats (Total . built-up area 49015 sqft). I am well acquainted with various software like Auto-Cad with expertise in Planning and scheduling using MS EXCEL.
