Buck Up NIT Rourkela!!
It was indeed nice to see a crowd of close to 650 persons listening intently to our talk titled "Go Embedded!". This is in contrast with many colleges where after getting a job in prefinal / final year the learning almost stops and the students are just running through the motions to complete the balance semesters, get a degree and get on with the job. It is often found that the keenness for "learning" is gone in most such cases.
NIT Rourkela experience was quite in contrast with this. The students were very keen to learn and see all the demos on COM, DirectX, Bluetooth and Device Drivers. I am sure, with this "attitude" towards learning many of them will make a mark for themselves in future professional life. Buck up NIT Rourkela, we need more colleges and Institution with your mindset.
